Carrying the travel dream from childhood, Kata entered the hospitality industry very soon after her 2nd year in Hanoi Open University. She started her career as a receptionist and reservations clerk in a large hotel in Hanoi, until she got her Bachelors Degree in Tourism & Hotel Management in 2009. After graduating, Kata spent 3 years working as an Operations executive, before realizing her huge potential in the travel consulting and online sales field.

As ICP’s top salesperson, she is able to charm customers, not only with her fluent English, but also her ability to listen and comprehend the client’s needs. Besides being a work-addict, Kata is an adorable woman who loves making friends, learning about new cultures and helping others.

Hi Kata
Ross and I are back in Sydney and sorting through the many photos we took on our wonderful 12 day adventure in Vietnam.
We have had a truly memorable time filled with lots of first time experiences. My ride on a motor bike into the countryside of Hue was amazing and a memory I will treasure forever. Ross had great fun attempting to make incense sticks and weave a mat!

The food, culture and people were diverse and ever so interesting, the accommodations first rate, the locations a feast for the eyes and the guides and drivers were all wonderful. Of particular note, Toan, our guide in Hue and Hoi was exceptional. His attention to detail, warmth and humour, care for our comfort, safety and happiness and great efforts to keep us informed and on track, were very much appreciated.
The special touches of flowers, rose petals and cakes at the hotels warmed my heart and soul … thank you so much. You really did organise a trip we will never forget.
Hopefully we will visit another time, stay longer and see even more ….
We are telling all our friends and family to visit Vietnam and to use Indochina Pioneer as you create marvellous itineraries to suit individual needs and take excellent care of your customers.
All the best in the future
Warm regards
Jenni and Ross Mackay

Hi Kata
Apologies for delayed response,
Firstly we would like to thank you so much for your input and thoughts in organising our fortnight in Cambodia and Vietnam. Everything worked out wonderfully, enjoyed all of it, experienced variety of cultures, histories, monuments-new and old, foods and hospitality. Your planned itinerary was very good and gave us enough time at all different places and little bit of relaxation too. The shows you included were excellent. Jyostna got the vegetarian food aswell. Hotel accommodations were of good quality standards and well located.
This is just a short note to summarise the service we received from your company and specially from yourself.
I will also recommend you to my friends and relatives, and will be in touch with you again if we decide to visit that part of the world in future.
Thank you for making our visit a good enjoyable experience

Dear Kata
We just wanted to write and say thank you very much for arranging a wonderful holiday for us. Everything worked out very well, the hotels were great and both our tour guides, Nam and Larry and their drivers were excellent. Nam really went out of his way to make our experience in Vietnam one to remember and we really appreciate the wonderful way we were looked after by everyone.

Please pass on our thanks to all and we will recommend you to anyone we know travelling to Vietnam.
Kind regards
