Tell me about yourself
My name is Binh and I am from the Thai Binh Province (just like my name). I have a beautiful and very young wife. I am very lucky as she is 8 years younger than me!
I love spring rolls! They are easy to eat and they can be filled with prawns, pork, vegetables for whatever you want.
How long have you been a SpiceRoads Guide?
I started as a SpiceRoads guide in 2004 so I have lots of experience.
What made you get into cycling?
I started riding when I was a little boy and used to ride my bicycle to school. My brothers also had bicycles but they didn’t love to cycle as much as me. I was always riding everywhere into town, to my friends house or just for the fun of it. After I left school I went to University to study tourism and then started working as a guide straight away!
What do you like to do when you are not tour guiding?
When I am not guiding I like to go biking! I always want to work in Tourism, one day I would like to manage a team in the office and build tours. I also like children and would like to teach English to school children. Teaching is a very respective job here in Vietnam.
Do you have a tour that you like the best?
All tours have their own beauty. The longest tour we have in Vietnam Saigon to Hanoi gives you more chance to see everything however if you don’t have so long the Red River Delta Tour is a great way to explore the area around Hanoi and enjoy some very different parts of this beautiful area.
What is your favourite place in Vietnam?
North Sapa is beautiful. There are also good roads for cycling and interesting tribal groups in bright colours to visit.
Why do you think people should come to Vietnam?
Vietnam has a unique landscape and filled with lots of local hidden charms. There is lots of culture and history to get absorbed in and it has not yet been spoilt by tourism.
