Beauty of the countryside
A photography tour encompassing the beauty of the rice terraces, the mountain scenery of Pu Luong and the photogenic region of Nam Dinh. We ride off the beaten paths to capture the scenes of an authentic Vietnam.
This morning, rise early to photograph in the incredible market of Long Bien, an extreme of dynamism. Later on, ride the mesmerizing mountain road to get to Pu Luong – a hidden gem of photography.
A full day to photograph the beauty of rice terraces and various farming activities in Pu Luong.
Drive from Pu Luong to Nam Dinh. In the afternoon we capture the photogenic boats & activities of the fishermen along the beach.
A full day in Nam Dinh. We rise when the sun does and only get back to the hotel after sunset. Today we will capture fishing scenes in the silky color of sunrise. Our cameras will also capture how local people make salt in one of the largest salt field of the country.
Our full morning is to photograph the fishing scenes again. Later on leave for Hanoi.
Please be prepared for rising before dawn and getting back to the hotel after sunrise. If weather permits we will also do some optional night photography.
Long, thin pants are suggested.
Vietnamese cuisines are available for our feasts.
Level of difficulty
Be prepared to walk in the mud of the rice terraces in Pu Luong to get closer to the farmers and photograph scenes at close-up distance. Also we might get ourselves into the water of Nam Dinh beach to photograph fisherman in their daily fishing task. If you can take these, it’s an easy trip.
We will stay in local homestay of the Thai people in Pu Luong. The house is on stilts and there’s a shared sleeping area for everyone. In Nam Dinh, we stay in a motel, the best one available at the beach, which is close to the photography subjects.
