“I grew up wanting to travel far & wide. Before entering college, I was torn between choosing Tourism and Trading as my career path. I chose Tourism. And later on I co-founded my own Travel Agency business (ALO Travel Asia). That was a dream come true – being able to make a living out of my passion. As every other business owner, I have always been too busy growing my business, I manage to travel every year, across Vietnam and South East Asia region. You could certainly say the ‘Travel Bug’ has bitten me!”
Fascinated by new cultures and destinations, Anh achieved her Bachelor at University of Languages and International Studies, Vietnam National University in 2010. Started working in tourism since 2011, been traveling intensively throughout South East Asia and helping thousands of travelers plan their exotic voyages to Indochina, she progressed to fully certified Sales Manager of two well-known travel companies before co-founded her own agency, ALO Travel Asia.
“I am in love with cities I have never been to and people I have never met. I believe travel is essential to a completed education, by seeing the world via different lens and accumulating experiences to the utmost. Our South East Asia, home of numerous cultural heritages and natural world wonders, holds a powerful attraction for many tourists and travelers that can sometimes be overwhelmed for first-time visitors. We build ALO Travel Asia with a team of Asian travel experts to help ease all these planning steps while optimizing travelers’ valuable time in our region, exposing to the richest cultural and historical offerings. Born in Hanoi, living in Ho Chi Minh, when I am not working, you will probably find me on a plane to a new destination.”
“I believe to travel is to learn, to reconnect with the wider world and each other, to refuel creativity and imagination. Born in the North of the country, lived half of my life in the South, I had the opportunities to travel across Vietnam, visiting many lands, experiencing different cultures and tasting wonderful foods that the country has to offer. I strongly believe Vietnam with a 3000km coastline and 4000 years of history, is among the most beautiful travel destinations in the world, and it’s my mission to increase the country’s exposure to a wider audience.”
