About Me


To extend my own limits


My name is Thang, or Dickson. I am from Saigon, Vietnam, and now staying in Metro Manila for work. I love to listen strange and fun stories and also love learning new different things, especially those are unfamiliar from my area. I believe we can always do so when meeting CSer!

Why I’m on 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.


"Pilot": First surfing experience ended up watching a horror movie about the train with my host. On the following day, I conquered the fear by taking a 8-hr train.

"Coincidence": On the way traveling to an unpopular site in Taiwan, I got off at a wrong bus stop, and met a CSer who were also in the same situation.

Combination of freezing water and Finnish sauna.
Wandering around alone overnight in the most ancient city - Rome.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you are interested in learning some Asian languages (Viet, Chinese, Cantonese, and Tagalog), you can find me as a free tutor. In exchange, I'd expect to pick up a little of your mother tongue (English and Tagalog included). Otherwise, sharing any kind of "crazy" stories of yours will just be great!
Aside from that, I can make Ca phe sua da (Viet coffee) as a welcome drink :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I would love to show you around the city of Saigon such as some very local hang-out places.
