Vibrant Vietnam: A Photographic Journey 2023


Day 6

The new day brings with it an exciting opportunity to capture one of the most beautiful photography spots in all of Vietnam. We’ll begin our day with a visit to the traditional incense village of Hanoi, where artisans have been hand-crafting incense sticks for generations. This unique and vibrant location provides a feast for the eyes, you can either use your camera or a drone to make a top bird-eye view of the iconic scene! Get ready to create award winning images that are truly special and that will evoke the senses long after you’ve left this magical place.

In the afternoon we’ll travel to the traditional bamboo fishing village in Hung Yen province, where we’ll have the opportunity to observe and capture the timeless art of fishing with bamboo baskets. This charming and tranquil village is nestled amidst rolling hills and tranquil waters, and provides a glimpse into a way of life that has remained largely unchanged for generations.

As we explore this picturesque location, we’ll have the chance to capture images that are both beautiful and evocative, capturing the essence of this timeless community and the traditional practices that sustain it. From the intricate details of the bamboo baskets to the tranquil beauty of the surrounding landscape, there is so much to see and experience in this unique and special place.

After a day filled with discovery and wonder, we’ll return to our hotel in Hanoi, refreshed and rejuvenated, and ready to continue our journey through the heart of Vietnam.


Day 10

The day begins with an exciting journey to one of the most amazing travel destinations in Vietnam: The Golden Bridge. This breathtaking landmark is an architectural marvel, soaring high above the lush hills and providing stunning views of the surrounding landscape. With its shimmering golden structure, the bridge is a symbol of strength, beauty, and innovation.

In the afternoon, we reluctantly say goodbye to this magical place and make our way back to Da Nang International Airport, where we end our tour. Though our journey is coming to an end, the memories and experiences we have gained will last a lifetime. We leave with a collection of photographs that capture the beauty, history, and culture of Vietnam, and a sense of wonder and gratitude for all that we have seen and experienced.

This photo tour itinerary is a journey of discovery, a celebration of the beauty of Vietnam, and a testament to the power of photography to capture and preserve the magic of our experiences. From the incredible Golden Bridge to the breathtaking landscapes and culture of this magnificent country, every step of the way has been a journey of wonder and beauty.
