Tom Divers is the founder and creator of Vietnam Coracle. He’s lived, travelled and worked in Vietnam since 2005. Born in London, he travelled from an early age, visiting over 40 countries (he first visited Vietnam in 1999). Now, whenever he has the opportunity to make a trip, he rarely looks beyond Vietnam’s borders and his trusty motorbike, Stavros. Read more about Tom on the About Page, Vietnam Times and ASE Podcast.
A year ago, I introduced the new contributing writers on Vietnam Coracle. This marked the first time in nearly a decade that other voices were added to my own in the articles, guides and reviews on this website. I was very excited and it felt like the time was ripe to roll out this new concept. Now, after 12 months of publishing content written by contributing writers, I’ll take this opportunity to look back at what they’ve produced so far, and to thank them for their efforts.

I am pleased with how the first year of working with contributing writers has panned out. I’ve enjoyed getting to know the writers – they are, of course, my friends – hearing their ideas, seeing them take shape, trying my hand at editing, and then publishing the final draft on the site. For me, it’s been very rewarding to work with other people on Vietnam Coracle, which was a solo pursuit for much of the first 10 years. I feel proud, fortunate and grateful to be working with the writers and sharing Vietnam with our audience. I look forward to producing more content together and seeing how this concept evolves in the future. So, thank you (in alphabetical order) Ben, Biên, Josh, Luke, Patrick and Thảo.
