Meet Our Team
Smiley - Managing Director
Hello, my name is Phuong and I go with the nickname “Smiley” that passengers chose to call me while I was working as a professional tour guide/ tour leader for number travel companies in Vietnam. After almost 10 years of traveling and taking tours all over the country, I founded Custom Asia Travel and run the company with my wife, Fiona who shares my passion and ambition.
Our aim is to create a professional team of travel specialists who are able to turn your travel dreams into reality, contributing our destination knowledge and expertise and working closely with you to handcraft an itinerary around your specific travel preferences to arrive at the best possible experience.
Let’s join our team to get off the beaten tracks, enjoy stunning landscapes and learn the authentic cultures.
Here below are some of Custom Asia Travel’s key persons that I am proud of
Fiona - Director of sales
Studying in the tourism faculty of a university in Hanoi, I was trained to be a tourist guide. I really loved this job which helped me meeting many friends all over the world as well as to show them how lovely Vietnam is. Although I love leading tours and moving around, working as a tourist guide seemed not to be a suitable job for me after starting a family and having babies while travel is my passion. Thanks to my last job - tour guide and years of traveling all around Indochina, I got to know well how different tours going, what most oversea travelers are interested in. These have become a great foundation for my current job and I am able to inspire my travel consultant team at the office. Having helped thousands of travelers building their own dream trips to Indochina makes me love my job so much. Our beautiful Vietnam has so many things to offer. Come with us, we will make your travel dream comes true!

And nothing is more wonderful than seeing our travelers off with big satisfied smiles at the end of the trips. I'm here with our team to ensure that your holiday to Vietnam is a memorable one.
Susan - Sales Manager

Julie - Travel Specialist
Hello, my name is Julie. The story begins 4 years ago when I was a little UNI girl without much money, I did a very first solo trip to the mountainous area of Sapa in search of something new. My eyes kept glowing by the breathtaking terraced fields and my heart just melts once handing candies to some small H’mong children. From that on, my love for traveling turned huge and then everything has changed since I enter Custom Asia Travel, a place where I could set my foot in many different lands and met amazing travelers from all walks of life. I love listening to their stories, custom makes their travel plan and together we create perfectly fit itineraries for their holidays. It is always my passion and I am here to help travelers from far and wide, coming our way, fulfill their dream.
Lily An - Travel Specialist

Despite young age, but with the passion for traveling, exploring new land and being blessed with many opportunities to travel to many places around Indochina countries, I decided to stick with this job to help and advise those who are interested in the land, the people and the culture of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, to discover the hidden beauty of my homeland and more. As a local travel specialist, I always want to help travelers find the most suitable route, the most appropriate time for the trip, and the accurate services to suit each customer's needs. After each trip, customer's satisfaction, their life experiences and big smiles are the primary goals of my job. Come and let me show you how good I am :).
