Hang L - Travel Consultant
Bachelor of Tourism Degree
Hang has been in the tourism industry for almost 4 years in 2010 and she loves it. She loves it because travel connects people from different parts of the world. She likes to learn new and interesting things about new cultures, different ways of life, and the not-so-ordinary traditions and customs, from both hosts as well as the visitors.
Her number one destination in the North of Vietnam is Halong bay. This Unesco World Heritage lying in the Gulf of Tonkin, includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Because of their precipitous nature, most of the islands are uninhabited and unaffected by a human presence. The site's outstanding scenic beauty is complemented by its great biological interest.
Hang's most favorite destination in the Center of Vietnam is Hue. This beautiful land was not only the political but also the cultural and religious land under the Nguyen dynasty until 1945. Not just the Inner city, the Imperial City, and the Forbidden Purple City, Hue is also very famous for its Perfume River which winds its way through the whole city.
Hang loves daydreaming in the Mekong Delta's rivers. “My mind wonders away to a peaceful place as the rest of the group learns about the interesting ways of life of the Mekong people, snap photos, and buy souvenirs. All of the houses and markets are floating on the rivers and all people's daily lives are spent on the water on the water."
Tip for Bai Tu Long: Bai Tu Long is an amazing place to go for your cruise. Right next door to Ha Long, this is not yet a regular tourist spot so you can enjoy your cruise in the sounds of silence. A valuable Vietnam asset, that we at Footprint get to offer to our guests.
Tip for Hue: Enjoy a Perfume River cruise with music and songs from a local artist on one of your evenings in Hue, adding great value to your trip.
Tip for Mekong Delta: Take a boat cruising along the mekong river, visit the local farming village, enjoy a southern region traditional music show in Cai Luong. Bring a sketchpad and a pencil instead of your camera
