About Me

I love travelling. I was working with students between Vietnam - Cambodia for 2 years. Then I moved to live in Myanmar in 4 months. Crazy experience helped me to learn a lot about myself.

Freedom is the most important things in my life. I want to meet with people who share the same spirit, mostly other travelers.

I love helping others so feel free to contact me. I want to be a freelance tourguide so I am gonna test my tour on couchsurfer who surf with me ;-) tell me what you looking for in Vietnam than I will come up with a tour that tailor your interest. Either:
- Street food adventure
- Saigon heritage
- Culture and religion
- Saigon in the alleys
or if you have no idea what you want, we can just do an opened walking tour hopping in and out anywhere interesting.

I am also opened to be your company/translator if you travel outside of HCMC (train, bicycle, boat, hiking). It will be great if you are a no-money-traveler because I want to learn from you. But please let me know in advance so I can arrange my work. Believe it or not, I have traveled to many places in other countries but not much in my own country. Weird, isn't it?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I got introduction from a friend who loved Couchsurfing 4 years ago. I did use it to find hosts and fellow traveler but not much. Now as I am back to my own country and have some free time, I want to connect with other people and help them as much as I was helped by local people while I was overseas.
Sorry I cannot host since I live with my parents.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Myanmar without any job offer in advance. Turn out, I was able to secure a job in a local NGO, lived and worked with native people, travel to beautiful non-touristic places. I survived there in 4 months in condition which pushed me far beyond my comfort zone

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn more about backpacking and hiking. I have no experience in hiking so really want to join with anyone plan to do that in my country or nearby countries. Especially if you're hard-core backpacking who know how to travel with the least money, I need advice from you.
In exchange, I can share with you my knowledge about Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar. I can also suggest places you can come for volunteer work if you decided to stay long in my country.
