Hans-Peter Grumpe is a German teacher. With a great passion for photography and traveling, Hans spent most of his holidays discovering different corners of the world, including three trips to Vietnam in the 1990s.

The photographer had spent almost two years traveling across Vietnam on his car with an interpreter who was also his tour guide.

Throughout his journey, Grumpe had captured thousands of color photos about the various Vietnamese landscapes, daily life, and the local people, which were rare at the dawn of the 1990s, Thoi Dai reported.

Below are some of the vivid moments of all aspects of life in Quang Nam in 1991 and 1992 under the lens of Grumpe.
