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. "

Ms Nit in Bangkok was great. The itinerary day were we went to the floating markets, Grand Palace and then were suppose to go to China Town for dinner was too busy. Given that it was early in the itinerary we were still jet lagged and there was no way we had energy to go to out at night. We skipped the china town food tour because we were exhausted even though it sounded great.

Ms Nook in Chiang Mai was equally great. All experiences were great. The elephant tour day could have used some... read more

Ms Nit in Bangkok was great. The itinerary day were we went to the floating markets, Grand Palace and then were suppose to go to China Town for dinner was too busy. Given that it was early in the itinerary we were still jet lagged and there was no way we had energy to go to out at night. We skipped the china town food tour because we were exhausted even though it sounded great.

Ms Nook in Chiang Mai was equally great. All experiences were great. The elephant tour day could have used some preparation. We had no idea the transportation was so long and in the back of a truck. Our son got motion sick and vomited in the back of the truck on the way there which was a bit of a struggle and rough start to the day. With some warning the night before we could have prepared and given him something for motion sickness. Also it would be nice to have clear direction to bring bathing suits for the swimming part. Overall the elephant tour was very memorable and a highlight of our trip.

Both dinner shows were great too.

Dear Brook,

First of all, it is so great to hear from you and know that you are all well after a long trip to Thailand.
Thank you much as well for sharing to me such a huge value feedback about the tour especially the itinerary of the city tour to floating market, Grand palace and Chinese street food tour as well as the preparation tips for the Elephant tour.
First, for the city tour, this is the normal city tour we often offer to clients and it is much more focusing on the local touch and daily life experience and got good comments from our clients so far.
As your family have had a free day for resting so I also think that the pace of the tour will be normal for your big kids. I will learn from that for the next family offer. Thank you for noticing me.

Regarding to the elephant tour, I will also learn from that and note the necessary tips for the upcoming tour to our clients and family tour.

For all the pictures, they are all great and I hope that your kids have learnt many things on the way for their living experiences. Is it possible if I ask for your permission to use some of them as our real client study case and experience on tour? if yes, we will really appreciate your support.

Thank you much again in trusting in our service and I look forward to have a chance to welcome to you Asia for the upcoming trips.
I wish your family with good health and happiness always.
Best regards,
Linh
