Travel around Vietnam to produce content including videos (10 short videos promoting 10 destinations), photos and articles to market Vietnam tourism in a fun and creative way.

Organize events (workshops, photo exhibitions, meet-ups) in different cities to empower Vietnamese people to travel more, and guide like minded travelers on how to combine their passion for travelling and working remotely.

Explore the hidden arts and culture of each city revealing the underground world that many people miss out on throughout Ho Chi Minh, Mui Ne, Da Lat, Nha Trang, Quy Nhon, Hoi An, Da Nang, Hue, Quang Binh, and Hanoi.
