My name is Nghia. I was born in a mountain town in northern Vietnam, so know about the mountainous roads – dangerous but stunning, I understand the culture & life of various ethnic locals here. Via organizing tour at homestay, I not only would like to share the beauty of our country & Vietnamese people to all friends in the world, but also want to help to develop the community’s life. It’s my responsibility with social. Zonitrip is my small tour project about adventure trips in Vietnam. We provide private/personalized day trips and multi-day trips from Hanoi for small groups.
