“My name is Vu Hoang Anh – and I am a founder of Indochina Charm Travel. Start working in travel industry in Vietnam from 1995, I had the great chance to learn and seeing the change as well as the development of tourism in our country. After quite long time working in different positions in some well-known international travel companies, I found that with my passion and knowledge, I can offer better value and discovery on tours in Vietnam to the travelers. So the Indochina Charm Travel had been founded to fulfill my dream. Being the general director of Indochina Charm Travel, I’m in charge of business strategy, recruitment and staff training. After 5 years running the company, we encounter also many difficulty caused by economic crisis in 2008 then now 2012. But I’m so happy because we have a team like a family; our own travel philosophy convinces all travelers; our customers including travel agencies and direct travelers do not stop recommending us to their friends and relatives. The travel business is my life, I like every day working at the office: have a hot green tea before a working day, chatting with customers, supporting staff, checking service quality and tour logistics, drinking “bia hoi” with colleagues… But the thing I like best is traveling with my young and dynamic staffs on an inspection trip. That is a good time to share not only work experience but also life style and further for me, to learn allots from them. If Lao Tzu says “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – I think that I’m always at the first steps of the business road. Whether favorable or difficult, we are having our right way and keep going till success.”

I have been working in travel industry in Vietnam from 1995 when I was still a student in Hanoi Water Recourses University , and the reason for me to work as a guide as that time was very simple: for practicing my English. At that time, when the country had just opened for tourist, it seemed to be the best way for me to practice English by talking to English native speaking people, them my destiny changed. From a student in very technical University in Hanoi, I found very big and intensive passion in me of traveling when having a chance to work as the tour guide, so then when I graduate from the University, I decided to be a guide but not the engineer as my plan, and my life have engaged with travel industry until today. In last 17 years, I have experienced lots of changes and developments of travel industry in Vietnam, but there is one thing never change in me: my passion of traveling. And for me, life is really a collection of different journeys. Working with our team in Indochina Charm Travel, I always try my best to create the great culture as well as team work, keep sharing my experience and specially my passion to my team. To organize the inspection trips is one of the best ways to do that. And when we arrive to the destination, I always shared with my team my impressions as well as my feeling when I came there the first time. The biggest achievement I got from working in travel industry is I have visited most of the single destination of my beautiful country in last 17 year. It is even much more meaningful when I been there with my camera as photography is my big hobby, and now I can share with you the images of Vietnam in our website. And like our team, inspection trips are always the highlight in my job. We have great learning, great fun and more than this; we have great solidarity and team work. The most impressed scenery for me in Vietnam is terrace rice field in Northern Mountain area. Every year, I was there with my motorbike and camera and for me, this is great retreat from my life and my work. And I like to call the Terrace Rice Field in Vietnam is the Stair Way to Heavenat the first steps of the business road. Whether favorable or difficult, we are having our right way and keep going till success.”

Mr. Vu Hai Dang – Tour Guide
Dang working for us as the full time guide right when he graduated from University. Open, hospitality and very caring, in 4 years working with us, Dang never had a fair feed back. He is taking care our clients in the North and sometime overland as well. Dang is one of the treasures of our company.
“I am Dang, 29 years old. I was born in Hanoi, when I was a child, I wish I can travel around Vietnam and far away places as well. However, during that time the economic condition did not allow me to travel Vietnam from end to end. Thus, after finishing the high school, I determined to enter Hanoi Open University, Faculty of Tourism, in which specialized in training student as professional guide and turn my wish in coming true. I have studied there for five years and in order to collect more experiences and pay for my tuition, I did have some part time jobs in ethnology museum, restaurant and hotels. I think it was really useful for my present job- international tour guide.
I still remember that the day when I was interviewed in Rosaliza hotel*** and succeed in that ones, I intended to work there one year until I graduated in my university. Accidentally, Mr. Yang gave me a call on that day and the chance came on June 2009. I and two other friends (Doanh and Huy) were trained for three months in ICT by Mr.Yang who communicated allots of valuable experiences to us. Besides, I found ICT that have professional work environment with obvious motto, strategy and culture, so I think two of those made me have a strong attachment to ICT.
Unlike other friends, they work as freelance guides for some travel companies, they don’t have any gratuity and medical care mode, but I have all in ICT. Once more, the weekly meeting also create condition for ICT’s members to present their work and exchange ideas to accomplish one’s mission. Through it, I can share my ideas with director and tour operator to adjust any point if it is not reasonable in certain time, to perfect tour program. I am quite proud of ICT about that.
For me, the most memorial experience is the field trip on journey (Hanoi-Nghia Lo-Than Uyen-Mu Cang Chai- Muong Khuong-DongVan-Cao Bang-Ba Be) with ICT on July 2010, that time was in rainy season and the road was bad, bumpy and slippery so our van had to stop for twice times on road, 1st time in Hoang Su Phi commune our van couldn’t drive up a slippery slope and 2nd time in Noong lake. By flexibility, we rent an extractor and dumber truck to overcome the challenges. More importantly, we took many nice photos at some rest stops and tightened the relationship of ICT’ members. Thanks for that journey, I learnt allots of precious experiences for myself.
When I have free time, I like to read books and search news relating to tourism because it enriches my knowledge and is useful for my work. Furthermore, adding some other hobbies like: listening music, watching documentary film, playing sport…
Each one has his own quote but my most favorite ones is “Ignorance is not worth as lack in inquiring will”
In brief, I do hope ICT keep on holding yearly field trip or outside activities in order that everyone understands each other.”
