Paul has a long, long history with Vietnam and travel and tourism in the region. Having first travelled to the country in 1988, Paul settled in Ho Chi Minh City in 1994 and he has been there ever since. One of the pioneers of the cruise industry in the country, Paul took the initial steps of expanding
Destination Asia Vietnam’s cruise products and he was a leading light in streamlining services in ports of call across the country.
In 2007, Paul created our Cruise Asia brand in the belief that our overall cruise services should be solidified under one umbrella and division of the Destination Asia group of companies. Paul continues to be the Managing Director of Destination Asia Vietnam and he is very much involved with shore excursion development – allowing the day-to-day operation of Cruise Asia to be handled by his extensive management team with owner-operated port operations in Ho Chi Minh City, Danang and Hanoi.
Son joined Destination Asia Vietnam in 2012, first as Cruise Operations Manager, then promoted to Cruise Manager sometime later. Since graduating from the Danang Foreign Language University in 1999, Son has held senior cruise management roles throughout Vietnam at various inbound operators.
Son has managed operations for some of Vietnam’s largest conferences and events as well as complex cruise operations with our many cruise line partners.
