Joe Do, CEO/ Founder

 

Joe was born in a farming village on the Red River bank, and made his way to the city of Hanoi for the tourism college in 2002. Starting out as a tour guide, Joe took groups throughout Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. As a freelancer, he got opportunities to work with best tour operators in the region, and gained a deep knowledge of leisure travels.

 

His passion for handcrafted travels was sparked on a month long trip throughout Vietnam and Cambodia in 2011 – when he was leading a group of veterans and historians coming back to the battlefields. Since that life-changing journey, he has been continued to explore the world by engaging with local experts in the history, culture, fine arts …

Sara McCathy, Travel Consultant

 

Sara comes to Incense Travel with an extensive history of personal travel. At the age of 15, she embarked on her first solo trip to Thailand from the US and has been hooked on travel ever since. Pursuing an interest in education and philanthropy Sara made her first visit to Myanmar with a non-profit organization based in Yangon.  A few years later she moved to Laos, where she fell in love with all the magic and beauty the Buddhist country has to offer.

 

A foodie at heart, her first stop in any new city is the local market. Some of her favorite travel experiences include strolling the markets in Siem Reap, having the fresh coconut at sunset in Luang Prabang, riding motorcycles in northern Vietnam, kayaking through a lagoon in Halong Bay.

 

She looks forward to discussing her love for adventure and exploring the Southeast Asia with like-minded travel lovers.
