We have incredible news to share with you! This year, we’re rewarding one of our retail partner’s sales associates with a once-in-a-lifetime, 10-day trip to Vietnam as part of our annual holiday sales incentive program.
Epic, right? It’s definitely the biggest holiday sales incentive reward Nina Nguyen Designs has ever offered.
Actually, it might be the most lavish sales incentive ever offered by any jewelry industry professional ever in history.
No one does this! But we are.
For the month of December, participating associates can log any sales of Nina Nguyen pieces here [link]. The person with the highest sales figures wins round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, most meals and a tour of the country’s must-see destinations and attractions—with Nina, the ultimate insider, as your personal tour guide.
The trip is scheduled for March 2020.
“I wanted to share this part of my heritage and a place that continues to be very inspiring and special to me, with one of our top-performing brand advocates,” says Nina. “Plus, I figured after the holidays, they’re really going to need a relaxing, fun-filled vacation!”
And that’s just what we have planned. Here’s a rundown of the itinerary, a perfect mix of exploring, shopping, eating, and just generally experiencing the best of this exotic, beautiful country in all its multi-faceted splendor.
Bring your appetite—and a swimsuit!
STOP 1: HO CHI MINH CITY
Also known as Saigon, your first stop takes you to Vietnam’s biggest city in grand style. You’ll spend days visiting temples, parks, and gardens, shopping the markets, and at night, we’ll be sipping cocktails in some world-class luxury hotspots. We’ll make sure you get to visit the War Remnants Museum, an attraction of interest to many Americans if you want to check it out, but the highlight of our time here will be sampling the street fare; it’s basically, Pho Heaven!
STOP 2: HOI AN & DA NANG
Nina’s getting a silk dress custom made with a local tailor near this super charming and colorful destination’s world-famous Silk Village and you should, too (or a suit as the case may be, or perhaps it’s just a tie and pocket square). This is one of the most touristy but cool things to do here, the perfect souvenir, with so many fabrics to choose from and your garment is completely made to measure. We can also head to the Cham Islands for seafood and snorkeling and visit the beautiful My Son Sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In nearby Da Nang, you’ll find French Colonial architectural attractions, tranquil beaches, and national parks. We’re staying at Furama Resort Danang, a five-start resort in Danang City, where you’ll get plenty of hang time by the pool and incredible beach.
STOP 3: HANOI
It’s the city capital, and there’s shopping, street food, and lots of local flavors. We can build a day around whatever you want to experience more of, whether it’s history and culture, more food (yes!), or souvenir shopping. If you want to spa it up (always a fun thing to here), we can make sure to allot some time to do that. You deserve to be pampered!
If you’re up for it, we can also devote a day to visiting the Hue Imperial Palace, (a.k.a., Hue Imperial City), which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s a three-hour bus ride from Danang, but the site is unforgettable and kind of a must-do for first-time travelers.
We’ll be announcing the “Trip of A Lifetime” winner (read: sales savant!) on Jan 10 so stay tuned for details.
