Sharmay T.

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Hello there, I'm Sharmay, a native born in Saigon, licensed as a national tour guide.

I am also a freelance graphic designer and a great lover of art, science and backpacking. So that if you are interested in photography, I can take you to "secret" spots for the most artistic pictures of the city; or if you are interested in buying unique local souvenirs, you already go with the right guide ;) or if you wish to learn about the local arts and its history, I know where to take you to; and if you are an adventurer at heart, then I would love to be your best guide here in Vietnam.

I have traveled around Asian countries to find out that my country is one of the most beautiful countries in the area, with fascinating landscapes varied from places to places, especially up to five UNESCO-recognized world cultural heritages, two natural, and one mixed site. But, shhhh. . . , there are many paradise sites that are still hidden along the country, that only backpacking explorers like me might have a few chances to find out :3

Best key words for describing my tours are:

- unique
- exciting
- humane / charity work - related
- nature - oriented
- environmental friendly
- local experience
- adventures
- culture discovery

Upon request, I can take photos of you during the tour, make and edit video professionally, arrange a traditional art show, organize a visit to local households, deliver flowers, . . . In high season, please verify my availability by email before booking.

Looking forwards to meeting you in Vietnam,

Have a gorgeous day :)

A Recent Review of this guide

Traveling with 2 young children I was quiet pleased to find your site and then even more happy when we met Sharmay! She made our tour fun for the kids, limited the history side of things and took us places she knew kids would enjoy . We really had a fabulous day and I'd recommend Sharmay to everyone !
