Sara Mason-Parker, business development manager at Corporate Traveller, is on her travels and you can read about it exclusively here on TravelMole.
On her first ever visit to the increasingly popular Vietnam, Sara is taking an Intrepid 10-day explorer tour that takes in Hanoi and its old quarter, a boat trip on Halong Bay, the royal past of Hue, friendly traders in Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City on a cycle and a paddle along the Mekong Delta on a sampan tour.
Former Thomas Cook customer service manager, talented photographer and founder of the popular ‘Travel Gossip’ social media feed, Sara is looking forward to the trip.
"I love going to places that I have not been to before. Vietnam faces a dilemma which many growing destinations have to endure and that is how much development you allow at the cost of sustainability. I hope the trip will give me a big insight to the local people, customs, food and general culture."
Sara’s first blog is due later this week !
