About this trip

The bustling streets of Hanoi, the beautiful lush, terraced landscapes of the north, and the well-preserved historical sites and soothing natural beauty of Central Vietnam. Immerse yourself in the vibrant tapestry of the Hmong culture, capturing the essence of ancient traditions and smiling locals against the backdrop of breathtaking natural wonders. Seize the opportunity to frame compelling portraits against the backdrop of terracotta-hued villages. This tour is your gateway to a visual narrative that encapsulates the spirit and authenticity of the Hmong people.

North Vietnam unveils a mesmerizing canvas of natural wonders, where emerald-green rice terraces cascade down mist-shrouded mountainsides. Dense, tropical forests teem with biodiversity, and the wandering rivers carve their way through picturesque valleys. North Vietnam is a symphony of breathtaking beauty, where we'll spend seven days photographing this natural beauty as we visit Hmong villages and colorful markets.

After flying into Hanoi we will go directly to Nha Trang, where awe-inspiring sights are in store. In this area, our focus is on people and cultural photography including fish markets, villages and traditional markets on the coast.
