Head of Bicycle Tours Division
It s my great pleasure to welcome you to my charming Vietnam. I love travelling and meeting people.
My name is Kuong, I have a nick : Koony. I studied about Culture and Tourism in the past and have been working in Tourism for over 10 years. My homeland is 100km away from Hanoi in the south east and is a friendly, peaceful countryside. When I was a elementary school boy, I had chance to go around with my dad and I found “ one day of travelling, a bit of wisdom gained” . It inspired me to explore more when I grew up. After graduation with two BAs of English and Culture & Tourism I was so delighted to be employed by a travel agent, from there I had chance to practice and improve my skills.
I met different types of travels, but I am most impressed with Adventure styles. It brings people more local touch and deeper understanding of the destinations. Beside some classical tours I have done lots of cycling, kayaking, and trekking tours to remote areas even we did volunteer tourism to help poor countryside villages. We the travelers and villagers both found great fun especially we could do something to the destinations to where we travelled.
I do hope when you visit my country, you can understand the most in your vacation plan. Please feel free to contact me at cuongdm at lotussiatravel.vn for a travel consult. I am delighted to share with you my travel experience.
