Meet the team:
Can is country manager in Vietnam and have many years of experience within the travel industry. He graduated from a tourism university in Hanoi in 2000. He understands the travelers’ needs, has good knowledge to setup tourism products and arrange interesting trips to Vietnam for them.
He spends most of the time for the company operation but whenever he has time, he plans for a trip to discover the new attractions in Vietnam.
Thuan has over 10 years of experience at tourism industry and he has been in most of the places in Vietnam. Growing up in the countryside of Vietnam, childhood experiences inspired him to travel. He used to be local guide in his hometown and show the tourist about the beauty and story behind every place they visit. He wants to inspire travelers the enthusiasm and meaning of traveling in life.
A travel tip to a great Vietnamese experience: “To just be yourself and immerse yourself in daily Vietnamese life. Seat yourself on a street stall stool in a crowded street, jump on a public bus, bicycle through the countryside and eat in the small (and cheap!) shops instead of in restaurants. That's the best way to experience Vietnam and any country.”
The young girl always desires to travel. She is from Ha Long city, where Ha Long Bay is located in. She’s very proud of her hometown and acknowledge about conserving the nature as well as showing the tourist how beautiful Vietnam is. She studied tourism in university and used to be a walking tour guide in the Old Quarter in Hanoi during her studying in university.
She always dreams to travel since high school and not knowing when her dream could be come true. After joining the travel industry, she did her trip from North to South of Vietnam for the first time. About her experience she says the following: “I feel lucky more than anyone, at least, my dream comes true.” Hoi An was a favourite destination, and also where she learnt to swim! She said that it was so beautiful there and she just wanted to spend time in that water, it was worthy. She wants to meet all travelers, especially young travelers, to spread the adventurous spirits and share the same dream of traveling.
Linh is the youngest member of the Hanoi team. She just graduated university and joined the team in Hanoi after. In her opinion, traveling is not only to see the world but also to see yourself, life is moments and the moments she found a new place in this world is also the moment she felt a piece in her was discovered. Whenever she is on the road to somewhere new, even to the sea, to the mountain or to the valley, she always feels different and unique there. Traveling through Vietnam from south to north in July 2019 would be the best trip ever in her life. She went to Mekong delta, visited the local life by the rivers through their village. She was on route with Easy rider guys from Da Lat to Nha Trang, felt like the adventure was so fast and fun, that’s she missed the most in that journey.

Ever since I tried diving the first time, I've been completely hooked! I booked a liveaboard tour with Bikudo to Similan Island in Thailand and it was simply a great adventure!
