Quite some time! I had I worked for Travel Indochina for 8 years, until 2010 and had been located in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. I worked in product and operations in our Saigon office for two years; I then moved to Cambodia in order to set up and operate our offices in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap (and ran those offices for 2 years as Country Manager). After Cambodia I returned to Sydney where I worked in our product team launching our first ever Japan program. continue reading….
Pioneered by our Laos Product Manager, Jenn Brown, over the past year we’ve been working to set up our very own offices in Laos. Last week we were finally able to announce the opening of the offices and welcome 5 new colleagues, Antony, Lay, Elee, Nong and Katai to the Travel Indochina team.
With our new offices in the UNESCO protected town of Luang Prabang and Laos’s capital city, Vientiane, we now have 7 local offices in Asia.
What does all this mean for you, our travellers?
1. How long have you been tour leading for Travel Indochina?
I’ve been leading tours with Travel Indochina since early 2012.
2. How many journeys have you led to Burma so far?
I’d say about 10 or more, though there’s been such a rush of interest in the country that it’s hard to count, especially with all the extra departures we’ve added. I feel like I’m part of the furniture here, as I’m back to the country so often! continue reading….

1. The Great Wall of China at Mutianyu
This much lesser visited section of the wall is located about 70km northeast of Beijing, a longer drive than most tours but well worth it! I loved that the wall was also an interactive experience. We started by taking a ride in the gondola lift (aka cable car) up the mountain to the base of the wall. Once you climbed the short stairway to get to the top of the wall, the view of the surrounding hills was truly breathtaking! continue reading….
