ASIA

DESTINATION SPECIALIST

I used to live in Laos for five years and in Vietnam for 10 years. During this time, I travelled extensively in different countries in Asia and worked for different local travel agencies to learn how to create unique itineraries for different clients from all over the world. I would like to share my passion and knowledge for Asia and the local specialties that you can discover in each country. I moved to Canada a year-and-a-half ago to start a new life with my family. My passion is to tailor-make each itinerary based on my client's request and deliver the best experiences in Asia. Try off the beaten track excursions in Laos, special interest tours in Vietnam, or an evening Vespa tour in Cambodia, where you can discover another face of Asia and meet locals. Get up early for the alms giving in a local monastery in Yangon or enjoy a sunset on the Irrawaddy River in Bagan. Asia can offer all this and more.

My favourite places

    Luang Prabang is a charming city and represents the "peaceful Indochina" that I love to discover. Unique temples, friendly local people, and great food. Take the time on the Mekong River to visit the Pak Ou Caves and enjoy relaxing time at the Khuang Si Waterfall. Visit the evening market where you can try snacks.

  • Ho Chi Minh City

    Asia

    In this bustling city with a Chinese quarter and local pagodas, you can start your day by enjoying a tasteful Vietnamese breakfast on the street before you visit the pagoda and make a wish by offering incense to the local gods. Discover the secrets tunnels built during the Vietnam War and relax in a bar with a view.
