When I finished high school I continued to study English in the college at Luang Prabang. After my education I came back to work with the tour company in Huay Xai from 2009 to 2014. I was working there as a tour guide until I started to operate my own cruising company.

Mekong Smile Cruise
The story of the Mekong Smile Cruise
It started in 2015 and was influenced by how much the river provides for the locals and visitors, by means of transportation of goods between local villages as well as security. The river is a major source of food and a huge influence on surrounding communities and biodiversity. It is in a sense a river of life bringing smiles to the community as a whole, as well as travelers passing through.
