Don't be a tourist, be a traveler. The more I know about new destinations and new places, the more I love Vietnam- my homeland as we have great authentic culture, the most gorgeous mountainous areas with rice terrace fields, the lovely 4 seasons that change around in a year, the best beaches and bays along the country that still keep its natural beauty. I hope that I can share this love with all the travelers who plan to visit Vietnam.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Northen Mountainous area of Vietnam, Myanmar, Chiang Mai - Thailand, Battambang - Cambodia, Luang Prabang - Laos."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I've loved traveling since I was a child, and would often join my family on trips. I chose tourism as my field of study at university. By the time working in, I found that I love this work more and more day by day. It is really the lovely second when I can know more about a new thing that is interesting on the way to consult to clients, new activities, new culture behavior....Even from some clients, I did learn a lot about their passionate to a place, a destination and they indeed inspire me a lot while doing the tailor made tours for their group.

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"2 years ago, I was in Ha Giang, Vietnam for a CSR company trip. We did very well offer to 2 remoted primary schools with pencils, notebooks and the cinema shows for kids. In the afternoon of day 2, we are noticed by the local people that there would be a big flood soon as it had been heavy rain for the last 2 days.

We have to give out the decision if we stay at the village to wait until the flood goes away or we have to leave the mountain village immediately to the town in the heavy rain. The road from the village to the town is the Monotheism way, it is small and narrow, one side is the mountain and the other side is abyss, there is one car in the road at a time. If there is another car from the opposite side, we will get stuck in the middle of the mountain and forests as there is no place to reverse back.

There are many types of risky as well when you move under the heavy forest rain, landslide, bad road conditions... After 4 hours of driving like "Fast and Furious", even in many places we go by 2 side wheels, we finally escape to the town. "
