Vietnam has many wonderful places to explore with you camera and to name a few off the top of my head would be Hoi An, Saigon and at the top of the list Sapa which is out side Hanoi which is an overnight train ride to the outskirts of the lower mountains.
Travelling up to the mountain by bus is a hair raising experience as the tires perch on the edge of a dirt road overlooking a sheer drop that would end your life. I personally wanted to kiss the ground after returning to sea level as I’m really scared of heights.
Sapa is a beautiful and colourful town thanks to the H’mong and Dzao people from the local hill tribes who head into the town’s market every day to trade their produce. The Terraced Fields where the people work is a sight to see with mountains cut by hand to produce the rice. A photograph really doesn’t do justice to landscapes you see.
This photo is the start of the day and the locals lock onto tourists they think will buy their trinkets. Walking down to the villages is a beautiful walk and took about 4 hours. A perfect place to take photographs and if only I didn’t leave my tripod in Hanoi because I really missed out on tracking some fabulous panoramic’s.
Sapa is up there as one of the best travel destinations for photography and can be done with a non pro DSLR. If you are starting out in photography owning the Canon 24-105mm lens is an excellent all rounder and looking back at the photo’s I have taken over the years it really has to be the best lens to get as started.
Note: Camera: Canon EOS 400D with a lenses EF 24-105mmF4 lense.
