CURRENT MISSION

To extend my own limits

ABOUT ME

My name is Thang, or Dickson (in English). I'm an undergraduate majoring in business, and living in Saigon. I love to listen the strange but true stories and learn new things, especially those are unfamiliar from my area.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I wanted to make my first road trip to Thailand with a minimum budget, thanks to Google and its super efficient search engine, then I became a CSer.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you are interested in learning some Vietnamese or Cantonese language, you can find me as a free tutor.
In exchange, I'd expect to pick up a little of your mother tongue (English included). Otherwise, sharing any kind of "crazy" stories of yours will be great!
