7-day Phong Nha National Park Photography tour 2020

Because the north-central coast is one of the least-visited regions in Vietnam, with almost no tourist attractions to speak of – apart from the amazing Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, we have decided to explore! This protected region is rightly famous for its giant, world-record-breaking cave systems. And it’s a true wonder of the world.

A CLOSER LOOK

This tour begins with Hue ancient city and its beautiful countryside, before heading North along the coastline and visit untouched fishing villages, and end up into the heart of Phong Nha national park.

 

We will be driving through the impressive karst formations and stop along the way when photo opportunities arise. The people of Phong Nha - Kha Bang national park who have not been exposed to tourism yet will show you a warm welcome, helping us in the process of taking their photos. 

About Phong Nha

Recently opened to tourism, the Phong Nha national park is still a completely untouched part of Vietnam offering amazing photo opportunities. We will be exploring remote villages and photograph the farmers at work, we will capture the sunsets over the impressive mountainous formations of the park, and visit the coastal fishing life of this area. The tour includes several photo reviews as well as people and landscape photography workshops.

Preparation

01. What's Included

In all our tours 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 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, and in an amazing and comfortable farm stay in Phong Nha. All our meals will be in local restaurants and hotels. All our transportation outside of Hue will be made via our own minivan.
