About Central Vietnam

Our Home-base for over 12 years, we are proud to show you why we love this area so much. It may be the amazing people we meet, or how brilliant the food is, or the fantastic activities we can photograph along the way, but it is the best area. It can be hard to tear yourself away from the sights and people of Vietnam, and such a photogenic region deserves as much of your time as possible.

01. What's Included

In all our tours outside Vietnam we strive to make things easy so everyone can focus entirely on photography. This is the reason why our rates include everything during the tour: accommodation, transportation, all meals, and even tips to local people. What is not included is your international flight, Visa, travel insurance, and souvenir purchase.

02. Group Size

Like in all our tours outside Vietnam led by two photographers we limit the number of participants to 8, for a better and more personalized coaching. As it is the case in my tours, we will mostly focus on people and ways to take their photos, in travel or street photography style. As we are doing photo critiques and Lightroom tutorials, make sure to take your laptop / iPad.

03. Accomodation & Transportation

We will be staying in 3- to 4-star hotels for most of the tour. All our meals will be in local restaurants and hotels. All our transportation outside of Hoi An will be made via our own minivan.
