Our Story

I started off as a Local Ambassador in Saigon, where I was born and raised. And I established Xin Chao Private Vietnam Tours there in 2008. I was fortunate to find my call – IKIGAI called in Japan – after I began assisting expats and veterans in my community with their problems and went on the charity trip with Heifer Organization.

We chose “Xin Chao” as the name of our company because it is a warm Vietnamese greeting that can be used by anyone, at any time. This common phrase means welcome, hello, and greetings! Pronounced like “sin chow,” one cannot say the greeting without a smile. Say it to people in Vietnam, and you will likely get a smile in return.

Ultimately, we hope that your experience with our company and team will garner smiles, great memories, and friendship.
