We have had two trips to Vietnam in the last few years. I went to Vietnam first in 2008. I travelled from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City by bus, making tons of stops along the way. Just last year Dan and Jacob went to Vietnam and did a similar trip, but with less stops and a better camera.
In the below post I have combined my favourite photos from those two trips. Can you can tell which ones were taken with the DSLR and which were taken with the point and shoot?
The busy street of Hanoi
Snake wine is a cure all in Vietnam, and certainly makes an interesting gift for friends and family back home.
Hue is known for it’s ancient temple ruins and tombs of rulers.
Beautiful pagodas are everywhere in Vietnam.
A day trip to the Cao Dai temple near Ho Chi Minh City, is one of the trips that I most recommend to others.
The above six photos are from Halong Bay – believe me, it was hard to narrow it down to just six!
This temple was swarming with people, but Dan managed to eliminate them all using a simple photoshop technique which we shared on the blog.
The Mekong river and the sea is integral to the Vietnamese culture and life style.
Crossing the road can be a challenge, and we shared a timelapse of a busy Vietnamese intersection on the blog.
Hue is also famous for it’s insence vendors.
No visit is complete without an early morning trip on the Mekong. If you get up early enough, you can paddle between some of the floating morning market places.
