Shi is originally from Quang Binh province – the Cave Kingdom, Vietnam. He is an adventurer, an ambitious cyclist, and a fearless traveler. Recently, he has been voted as an amazing story-teller. Graduated from Hue Tourism College – sponsored by Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and Hue University of Foreign Languages (HUFL) with a B.A in English, Shi’s got a good time working for HG Travel Group at Sales Marketing Department and a member of adventure guide team. Shi soon falls in love with the passion of travelling, especially travelling by bicycle. His bike trips that took him around the Indochina (Vietnam – Laos – Cambodia) have increased his love of the good things in life and his conviction that in order to really know a place you would love to know its people, its cafés, its villages, its stories, and its foods. After years of working and cycling since 2005, Shi founded his dream of Oriental Sky Travel in 2011 along with his friend, Luk – to share their love of travel and cycling, and to inspire others to see the world with wonder and joy, to seize every day, and to travel to their highest potential. Shi speaks excellent English and Vietnamese and pretty nice Thai.

Pub with Cold beer

Then we will experience " Pub with Cold Beer" destination.

Crossing Rao Con river to the Pub with Cold beer

Nestled on a dusty -- or muddy, depending on the season -- hillside on the edge of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park in the Quang Binh province of Central Vietnam, the Pub With Cold Beer is a family-run establishment that serves what it advertises, cold beer. It also serves chicken. The beer is refreshing, especially after the strenuous journey out to the pub, which requires crossing a river (luckily only ankle deep at the time of year that we visited), and carrying your bike at times when the road is either too steep, too sandy or too muddy to traverse on two wheels. But the real reason to make the trek out to the pub is the chicken, the only thing on the menu, which you order by the kilo -- or by picking out your own bird."- Alison Spiegel- Hufingtonpost

    The Quang Binh province in Central Vietnam is quickly developing the reputation as the adventure capital of Southeast Asia. Gargantuan limestone caverns beg exploration beneath the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. Hordes of tourists are flocking to the area to venture inside these ancient caves. Now more exciting activities are available for those searching for more pursuits on the surface. One such experience is mountain biking in Phong Nha, which offers a mix of tough off-road trails, rural surroundings, historic sights and enchanting scenery. While the grandeur of the massive caves hiding amongst the jungles of the national park attracts thousands of visitors, the farmlands in the neighbouring area remain relatively untouched. The mountain biking in Phong Nha took us deep into the heart of it and left us longing to venture back out on two wheels to relive the experience. • “Shi is an amazing guide. I cycled 40km with him around Phong Nha and it was awesome. Super friendly guy with very good bikes. I spoke to him the day before about the kind of trip I was after. I do a lot of portrait photography, so i was keen to meet and hopeful snap some of the locals. He tailored the trip around this, introducing me to people along the way and even translated for me where needed. Couldn't recommend this enough, it was one of the highlights of my trip” _ by Chris Rush, from U.K • “So after completing the Son Doong cave tour, I was tired and thought I had did enough. But biking with Pvt. Shi was the perfect complement. In fact, I think it's the perfect complement to any trip in Phong Nha. Biking around the town and to the local side really added a personal touch. Highways became streets. Streets into muddy roads. Muddy roads to rivers. Whether it was rice fields and cows to small neighborhoods and smiling kids, every part of the biking tour felt great. You get a real sense of the place” – by James, from the U.S More about this adventure, please see at: http://www.nomadasaurus.com/caves-farmland-mountain-biking-in-phong-nha-tour/
