Long decided to use the building of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee as a key concept because it is a symbol of a tourism destination and a symbol of government. The design implies support of the Association to Tour Guides community. Hands and aircraft surround the building, showing the connection and sublimation. Hands represent the Association’s support and companionship; aircraft represents the tour guides, growing and flying high to the new world.

Journey to conquer the dream of being the tour guide

Nguyen Phi Long is a second-year student, majoring in Tourism and Travel Management, Van Lang University. Long decided to study at Van Lang University because of the finest facilities in Campus 3, the modernity, openness, innovation, and high applicability of the curriculum. Also, Long participated in the Tourism Skills Club, founded for Tourism students. The activities helped to be more confident and created more opportunities for real-life experience. The dynamic, enthusiastic, willingness to face challenges and early working experience have helped Long come closer to his dreams.

It was an opportunity to hone and apply the theory and tap into an ability to do the voice-over. “It is also where I took the first crazy tours in my life. I was just a freshman at the time. Happy cry.” Long shared.

When Xuyen Viet Group developed to Vietguide Supply Company as it is now, Long became an official member. This is a precious pride for newcomers. He is aware that the accomplishments come with increasing responsibility. More efforts, therefore, are needed to improve skills in different areas. 

The initiative in learning, continually training, and self-challenge through extracurricular activities gives long valuable practical experiences, opportunities to improve day by day. It will be a solid premise for a later career. This path is what all students in Van Lang University decided to be – “Practical experience during the study.”
