Samantha Brown's Asia

Wet weather and an impending typhoon is no match fo Samantha Brown and her crew.


Here at vMW/LFA we are used to dealing with celebrities, but never did we expect "travel goddess" Samantha Brown to be so, well, NICE!

Sam and her crew traveled to Vietnam for a whirlwind tour - taking our super fixer TT along for the ride. En-route they learned to cook Bun Cha (BBQ pork with rice noodles -- see video below), harvest rice and even found time to visit a floating school in Halong Bay.

Even when the weather turned foul, the vibe on location remained upbeat. By the end of the shoot, the crew had become one of our favorite clients!   (some of us also had a wee case of hero-worship!)

The Vietnam episode of "Samantha Brown's Asia" premiered on the Travel Channel on August 2nd, 2010.

Of note: fixer-extraordinaire TT followed up his cameo on Top Gear with his first speaking role as Samantha's guide in Halong Bay!

Local Fixers Asia was involved with all aspects of the shoot and was the sole service provider.
