First trip with Tubudd is a memorable trip

It was an urgent trip, as the traveler who had booked her had only just arrived in Hue and had no idea where to start exploring. Bem was happy to oblige, and despite the last-minute nature of the trip, she managed to put together an itinerary that showcased the best of Hue's cultural heritage.

Despite the rushed nature of the trip, Bem felt fulfilled at the end of the day. She had managed to show the traveler the best of Hue, and the traveler was pleased with the experience.

Bem sees difficulties as experiences that she needs to face

Like any job, there can be challenges and difficulties that come with the territory. One of these challenges is when visitors come late or when a trip goes into overtime. However, Bem sees these challenges as learning experiences rather than difficulties.

Instead of getting frustrated, Bem uses this as an opportunity to show her flexibility and understanding. She adapts the itinerary as needed to ensure that the visitors can still experience the best of Hue, despite any delays.

Similarly, if a trip goes into overtime due to the visitors' interest in a particular location or activity, Bem sees this as a positive experience. She believes that going above and beyond for her visitors is an essential part of being a local buddy. She takes pride in providing the best possible experience for her visitors, even if it means working longer hours or adjusting her schedule.
