About Me


To extend my own limits


My name is Thang, or Dickson. I am from Saigon, Vietnam, and now just moved to 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.


First started in Bangkok, and I've been meeting a lot of great people ever since.

Teach, Learn, Share

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!
