Adventure to Phu Yen Vietnam with a Local Guide

Updated: Mar 25

While Cẩm, a local expert of Chôm Chôm Travel in Phú Yên, didn't initially pursue a career in tourism, little did she know that her passion for travel and sharing the beauty of Vietnam had been growing since her early years. Let's get to know more about Cẩm Nguyễn and learn more about why she's one of our favorite local guides in Vietnam.

Cẩm Nguyễn - A passionate and enthusiastic guide in Phú Yên
“Hi, I’m Cam. I was born and raised in the countryside of Phú Yên which is about 10 kilometers away from Tuy Hòa City. My family has 8 children and I’m the youngest one. Do you think it’s a big family? ;)”

Cẩm said: "It came to me naturally…"

Initially, Cẩm didn't pursue tourism when she was in college. She worked as an accountant eight years ago; however, the job didn't fulfill her. Meanwhile, she admired any Vietnamese who could speak and understand English well, so she began learning English in small groups.

Little did Cẩm know that her career in tourism was about to unfold. It was when she learned about a group of college students in Saigon who offered free tours to foreigners to improve their English speaking skills. She decided to join to practice her English skills, but after a while, she realized her passion for guiding as she loves showing travelers worldwide the beauty of Vietnam and its hidden gem.

Cẩm's hometown silently nurtured her passion

Cẩm was born and raised in a small peaceful town in Phú Yên with the pure beauty of the countryside and the simple life of the friendly locals. Growing up embracing a rustic lifestyle, her silent passion for sharing the beauty of her hometown with others has blossomed. By pursuing a tourism career, Cẩm also loves how she can experience and explore the world and learn about different cultures around the world and their diversity.

Moreover, tourism has been instrumental in supporting her hometown by creating diverse job opportunities for the local community. It has spurred the establishment and growth of sustainable tourism (a key motivation for her to work with Chôm Chôm Travel). Additionally, it has provided local college students pursuing careers in tourism with valuable opportunities to work closely with foreigners, expand their job prospects, and foster a deeper sense of pride in their hometown and Vietnam!

Besides her hometown in Phú Yên, Lan Hạ Bay is her second favorite destination in Vietnam. This is not an easy choice for her, because there are too many excellent landscapes across the country. However, Lan Hạ Bay impresses Cẩm with the majestic karst islands and the emerald color of the sea - it’s the world’s wonder after all! In addition, she can’t wait to explore all the marvelous yet mysterious caves in Lan Hạ Bay with her adventurous spirit!

Proudly share with the world her brilliant Vietnam

Vietnam is an extraordinary travel destination, catering to everyone, including families with children. It boasts stunning natural beauty, rich culture, and exceptional local cuisines. Cẩm is proud to say that every day in Vietnam is a new journey! There is a saying that Vietnam is a country that has “the golden forest, the silver sea”, which means the country has an excellent gift from nature!

There is a wide range of destinations in Vietnam to explore, from her peaceful hometown with green fields to ancient cities like Hà Nội and Hội An, and dynamic cities like Sài Gòn. Beyond that, embarking on a journey to explore Vietnamese cuisines and connect with the locals is also a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

“Don’t delay your chance to travel to Vietnam! Life is short. Let’s enjoy and explore my country, Vietnam, as soon as possible!”
