Who are we
Founders Nhung (Vietnamese) and Marnick (Dutch) started Local Vietnam as an alternative to the classic travel agencies that are popping out everywhere since Vietnam become more and more popular. Most of them lack knowledge about traveling, find it hard to understand foreign tourist or only offer popular activities to overcrowded destinations.
This is how Local Vietnam is born. Combined we visited over 50 different countries and have seen all 58 provinces of Vietnam. This not only gives us a incredible knowledge of our destinations, but we can also understand your exact needs as a fellow traveler.
With Local Vietnam we are offering handpicked, high quality activities and service for all the destinations in Vietnam in one place. Private or small groups, with lots of contact with the locals, the culture and discovering beautiful unspoiled nature.
Also as a provider of activities, we feel responsible to reduce the pressure that tourism brings on the natural and social environment of our destinations. Our mission is bring more and more sustainability into our business processes.
Nhung has visited more than 32 countries and 200 cities around the world. Besides having more than 6 years of experience of working in the travel industry, she is also a well known travel blogger in Vietnam. She try to inspire young Vietnamese to explore the world and be more sustainable.
Marnick graduated from tourism in the Netherlands and has more than 8 years of experience in digital marketing. He has travelled to 40 countries around the world and has worked in the countries Australia, the Netherlands and Costa Rica before he ended up in Vietnam were he is living now for the last 5 years.
