A reflection of affection by Bounhome ‘Hom’ Inthanousone, our Vientiane-based Laos Travel Specialist.
My passion for my country has been with me throughout my life – as far as I can remember. My love to travel developed as I did, and I used both loves in my first job as a tour guide. I used to take my clients all over Laos and I loved having the opportunity to explore so extensively.
We’d visit coffee plantations, waterfalls, temples. We cycled through villages and kayaked down rivers and back again. I got immense pleasure from showing off my country, it made me proud and satisfied that visitors could so easily fall in love with my home as I have.
For the same reason, I love my job as a Travel Specialist just as much. Now I help even more people than before, and plan their vacations to suit their personal dreams. My favorite place to ‘send’ people is the 4000 Islands in the south of Laos – it’s surely my dream destination.
This is a beautiful region, perhaps the most spectacular in the whole country. It’s a place where travelers can enjoy many fun activities, such as taking a trip on a local boat along the Mekong River at sunset – an unforgettable moment.
It’s also a region where travelers can spot the rare Irrawaddy Dolphin. But the thing I love to do the most is explore islands by bike or on foot. It’s so much fun to travel around and meet the local rice field farmers and see the beautiful waterfalls.
Every client I’ve sent to the 4000 Islands has always sent me messages after to say how great it was – and the fact that they are happy makes me happy!
