Thuy Nguyen

My name is Thuy. I have worked for 10 years as a tour operator and travel consultant for foreigners to Vietnam. This is a great job for me to introduce the natural beauty and unique culture of my homeland to all people from all over in the world. I love learning about different cuisines, destinations, daily local life, and traditional handicrafts. As a travel specialist, in addition to sharing the highlights of my country with travelers, I also strive to connect them with local people so they can have an in-depth understanding of local culture and people.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos. We specialize trekking, hiking, biking in Vietnam, especially in the mountainous regions such as the Northeast: Ha Giang, Ba Be, Bao Lac, Cao Bang, and the Northwest: Mai Chau, Mu Cang Chai, Sapa, Dien Bien Phu, of course combining with other classic activities."

How did you get involved in travel?

"During my university years, I took some group tours. I learned a lot of new and really interesting things through these trips. Therefore, after graduating from university, I decided to join the professional tourism industry and hope that I will have more opportunities to learn more about it as well as to go to explore more new destinations"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My unique travel experience is the first trekking in Cat Ba National Park more than 10 years ago (before becoming a local specialist myself). Although we hired the local guide, somehow he got lost on the way to the village where we were going to spend the night. The guide then went off to find the correct path by himself, so we waited on our own for over an hour. Finally, he came back and asked our group to follow him. After hiking for nearly 2 more hours, we heard the call of a rooster, which meant that we were coming to the village and could finally escape the forest. That was amazing & experience trip. "

From the moment I emailed Kimkim to our departure from Phonm Pehn , it was perfection! I've previously been a travel agent and would highly recommend Kimkim Travel & Ms Thuy.

From the moment I emailed Kimkim to our departure from Phonm Pehn , it was perfection! I've previously been a travel agent and would highly recommend Kimkim Travel & Ms Thuy. We asked for a biking/beach adventure through Cambodia with 4-5 star accommodation, Ms Thuy nailed the entire itinerary. She sent the route we should ride/drive with suggestions of accommodation. The accommodation was outstanding! The transfers were seamless which makes life so much easier. Our guide from Siem Reap down to Phonm Pehn was awesome, his English was great which helped us greatly in every aspect of travel. We were able to adjust our itinerary during the days as it was much hotter than we anticipated. We loved our four nights in Siem Reap, especially upgrading hotels for a night at the Shinta Mani Angkor, our champagne on arrival set the scene!! Ms Thuy also suggested Koh Rong Island in a Beach Bungalow at the Sok San Resort, this is a must do if you stay on the Island.
Kimkim Travel is definitely the only way to go if you want an Independent/flexible holiday that you can design around your individual needs and wants.
Thanks Ms Thuy & Kimkim for a perfect, seamless, fantastic Adventure through the beautiful country of Cambodia."
Warmest Regards
