Thac Ba – Photography & Drone in tranquility
Tea plantation shooting
Visit a vast & photogenic tea plantation, capture the local picking tea leaves by hand
Leaving Hanoi, travel through the countryside of the Red River Delta, and enjoy the bucolic scenery along the way with rice fields, villages, etc. Our route escapes the hassle and bustle of city’s life.
Going a bit further uphill, we reach one of the largest tea plantations in Vietnam, with local people picking tea leaves by hand. This is a wonderful opportunity to work with portraiture, landscape and composition. Also it is an ideal place if you’d like to fly your drone and capture this evergreen scene.
Reaching Thac Ba, you’d be surrounded by rice paddies, houses on stilts of the local Dao ethnic group. Dinner and overnight in the home stay (L/D)
Rise early for a walk in the village. After breakfast, we’d go on a local small boat and cruise in the tranquility of Thac Ba. Being one of the largest lakes in northern Vietnam, the place possess incredible scenic and peaceful scenery. It’s a fantastic chance for us to capture local fishermen, drifting in their small boat while busy dropping or pulling nets out of the water. This vast lake is also ideal for flying drone, since you’re not blocked by any electric wires or building. Capturing scene of small boats from high above is really exciting.
Our lunch is done on one of the island.
After lunch, make our way back to Hanoi. (B/L)
