Vietnam Uncovered
Lives in Hanoi, Hoàn Kiếm, Hanoi, Vietnam
🇻🇳 Hi, my name is Viet, and I have dedicated the last 8 years of my life to an extremely intense exploration of my homeland - Vietnam. 🏙️🏞️ I have traveled the whole country several times, starting with the main cities and common routes, and ending up exploring countless off-the-beaten-path trails and ethnic villages in remote mountainous areas. 🏍️ As a passionate motorcyclist, I have done all of my trips on 2 wheels, giving me the opportunity to truly experience and be connected with both the surroundings and the people in the present moment. My records show that during the last years, I have spent over 80,000 kilometers and 550 days just on the road, not counting living in several different places across the country or working with the ethnic minorities in the Northwestern region, contributing to a sustainable community-based tourism projects. 💫 I can proudly and with great confidence say that I've seen and experienced a lot in Vietnam and have truly been living my passion - exploring and understanding Vietnam as much as possible - to the fullest, ultimately turning into a destination expert. 🙋🏻‍♂️ 🫴 Now I'm here on a mission to uncover the most authentic travel experiences in this breathtakingly rich country, which is absolutely worth visiting but can be quite challenging for first-time visitors to truly experience its real beauty. My goal is not to produce as many guides as possible, yet to create truly in-depth and trustable source of information. ℹ️ I have years of experience with tour guiding, custom itinerary planning, and consulting for hundreds of travelers, explorers, and adventurers. My maps, guides, and services here on Thatch are mainly focused on those who use cars, buses, trains, and planes as a form of transportation and are planning for "beyond general exploration of Vietnam" in a truly authentic way. If you are interested in motorcycle travel, overland trips, or deep focused expeditions, please schedule a consultation call with me!
