    Local guide (Hanoi) The Vietnamese culure is complex and has changed constantly. Thats why Ive travelled up and down in the country in order to update my knowledge so that I can deliver appropriate notions to foreign visitors. And they appreciate such a vision of guiding. Cultural interactions are always at the heart of my profession

  • Local guide (Luang Prabang) I love teaching my travellers all about the history&culture here in my own personal way. As well as being a local, I trained for 5 years& I know everything about the places we visit. I help my travellers find things that are special to Luang Prabang, the things they want to see or try. Like Luang Prabangs food its the best in Laos, including the amazing chili sauce

    Tour guide (Siem Reap) All travellers are different&want different things from their experience. So I help show them what they want to see. Because Ive lived in Siem Reap all my life, its the place I know best. I know it like the back of my hand& I can help travellers experience more. I love showing travellers Siem Reap, especially my favorite spots like Angkor Wat temples

While staying in cities, we offer the superb culinary delights of top restaurants within easy reach. Food in Indochina is inexpensive with most meals costing between $10 and $20, and even the finest restaurants are comparatively well priced.

  • A city of tree-lined avenues and ornate architecture,

    which holds more cultural sites than any other city

    in the country, the Vietnamese capital still exudes

    all the colonial elegance of its French heritage.

    Lying besides the Red River it has enjoyed a

    prominent place in Vietnams turbulent history for

    nearly 1,000 years, a factor reflected in its wealth of

    pagodas and temples and the myriad artisans

    trading amongst its colourful and diverse network

    of back streets..... With the charming Old Quarter

    featuring architecture from the French-Colonial era,

    Hanoi cultivates a fusion of Parisian and Asian

    influences to become a city of colonial legacy and

    modern outlook.
