Craig Collins

After graduating from university and working as Finance Administrator for 18 months, Craig realized that he had not yet seen much of the world and did not want to have this regret later in life.

A few months later, he quit his job and booked a one-way ticket to Vietnam. He spent the next 4 months traveling around Vietnam, Singapore, and Malaysia before heading back to Vietnam to teach English.

Originally from the UK, Craig has been living in Vietnam for 2 years and works as a Digital Project Manager. In those 2 years, he has traveled the length of Vietnam by motorbike on 2 separate occasions and has found his new home. Having traveled and lived here as an expat, Craig hopes his experiences can encourage and help others who are also considering Vietnam as their new home.
