About the tour

In Vietnam, while villagers have been making a living by producing incense sticks for the better part of a millennium, this unique art of making these "spiritual products" has somewhat become hidden to most Vietnamese and tourists alike. Follow Spring and Hieu on Day 3 as they take you to Thủy Xuân village where you can take a close-up look at 20 families passionately making the same products together. Usually handcrafted, these fragrance sticks are offered by millions of people to ancestors at home and several goddesses in pagodas across Vietnam. Spring and Hieu are pretty fun to hang out with and can make you laugh and relax just a little. They love their job and can do it for 60 years so when you come to Vietnam, you can catch up with them and have a nice cafe together :) You will love Huế even more after this trip, add color to your postcard collection and learn about the Vietnamese way of life! ✏ Please keep in mind that this is a slow pace tour, it's not adventurous like their scooter ride in Ho Chi Minh city :) ✏ Be bold and ask the couple every question that pops up in your mind!! Spring and Hieu want to make this tour as interactive as possible so answering your questions create joy in their hearts. ✏ Stay open-minded. Just a little bit is good ♥

Meet Spring Vietnam Tours

Spring Vietnam Tours

Spring and Hiếu (pronounced almost like Hugh) are a couple who have been leading tours for more than 5 years in Vietnam. Since team up with Heygo, they have decided to live stream the whole country by traveling to a different city every month. These live streaming tours are a condensed version of Vietnam's untold history and culture from their Vietnamese perspective. They both love history, history made them realize how grateful they are to have a better life than their people did. They have it 1000 times easier than their older folks did. For them, Vietnamese people were the strongest, smartest, and most courageous people back then. Book their virtual trip and you just might feel the same. They are always finding new ways to do it better than last time! Spring and Hiếu are here to give you value and make you relax a little. When not guiding, Spring loves lifting weights, listening to K-pop, and watching Korean dramas. Hieu loves doing yoga taught by his teacher Sadhguru and reading.

Another excellent tour! Really interesting to learn the process of making incense sticks. Please thank the host for inviting us into her place and sharing a bit of her life with us. The display at the front was so beautiful, it was art!

unfortunately I lost power at my house 10 minutes into the tour. I was looking forward to it as I was in Hue in 2019. I really like the couple ,very friendly and they are paying attention to the people on the tour. I will re-schedule the tour and I have 3 more booked already. Looking forward to my next adventure with Heygo
