Nguyen Thuong Giang
General Manager Indochina
As a little girl Giang used to queue for hours with neighborhood kids in front of Hanoi’s Metropole Hotel; the only place in town where fresh milk could be had. It is widely thought that this laid the foundation for Giang’s interest in the leisure industry.
At the time that Giang studied, as per Vietnamese culture, she followed her parent’s advice into Accounting but soon found out her passion for numbers was more towards ‘numbers of people.’ So, in love with traveling and cultural exchange, and proud of Vietnamese history, after graduating, she joined one of the largest state owned companies that were at that time shaping the country’s tourism future. She became a tourist guide, sharing her love for the rich cultural heritage of Vietnam with overseas guests, while at the same time learning from them how the world turned across the regional borders.
Giang was on the team of the Indochina office in Hanoi from the first hour, originally in the Reservations and Operation department. She feels that the big difference in style of Asialink Holidays with our colleagues in the industry opened the door for her steady development towards heading the office as she does today.
Giang, a food-lover, will taste anything she can get her hands on, and is our leading expert in creating menus that reflect the region’s cuisine while at the same time being not to daunting for your clients. In tourism, getting the balance right for your guests is key to success; Giang and her team are there to make sure it is done.
