Vietnam is my home and Asia is my backyard where I spent my last 18 years traveling and living in different countries. I’m passionate about culture and local life, food and behind the scene stories. I’m a huge curiosity person so I do love venturing to the unknown destinations and get to know it from inside out. Connecting worldwide travelers with the local and promote tourism in a real authentic way is my driving objective when working in travel industry.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. We specialize in real human encounters, local culture, cuisine and photogenetic trekking/ hiking routes. We host many luxury clients as well but it doesn't stop us bringing them off the tourist track or getting under the surface iconic destinations to meet locals while still stay in comfort. We love to welcome the family with kids because we are a team of young traveling parents ourselves so we know the best we can arrange for them in the region."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I fell in love with everything that makes me move faster, I didn't have a bicycle until I'm 15 and when I had my very first motorbike at 20, I started riding as far as I can. At 21 years old I boarded my first flight and ever since I decided I will work hard to keep flying around, see new destinations. I made my dream came true and landed on Europe when I was 24. The world is beautiful and the people who put a soul in their country make it remarkable in every way, travel bring your life a true meaning of exploration. I decided to work professionally in the travel industry and learn everything about it, promote my beloved destinations to others. Now I still travel for work and for leisure, every year I plan an epic trip to trek the Anna Purna Circuit, riding a Royal Anfield in Ladhak, backpacking Europe, Volcano trips of Indonesia or motobiking trip across Indochina... "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"In 2007 I rode my motorbike from Southern Vietnam to Cambodia, across Laos and come back to Northern Vietnam. The bike was a Minsk, 125cc bike from Belarus... the gear system broken up in Laos and no mechanic at that time could help me to fix it. I rode with 3 gears for a few days in Laos until I got it fix at the border town in Vietnam. That was an amazing trip which I took all the time to travel slow and enjoy to stop wherever I like and get to know the destination and the people. I had my son in 2010 and I named him Minsk. I think that's also the reason I moved to Laos and live there for 2 years setting up a Travel Agency in Luang Prabang in 2016."
