    sometimes i feel it is better to go and just shoot based on your perspectives.
    normally places where people recommend will become "another usual location shot" imo.

    well anyway have fun in hanoi! post some photos then..
    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.

    Street shooting in the old quarters.....enough to keep you real busy....shoot whatever you like......and when you get tired, sit by those road-side stalls, have a drink and continue shooting from your "parking lot".....

    Perhaps you might want to book a tour out to Tam Coc and shoot some landscapes of rising limestones and rowing boats.It's just a day trip and provides a nice getaway from the hustle of hanoi itself. Along the way to Tam Coc, you will pass by padi fields.....nice views......but might not have the chance to de-bus to shoot unless you "brother brother" with the driver or tour guide lah.......

    Happy shooting !!!

    And one last very important thing.......the coffee is DAMN POWER !!!

    Hi..I am here in Hanoi now. Its very hot. Bring minimal gear. Trust that you wont want to bring your stuff all along the streets of hanoi.

    The street life is nice to shoot but if you can plan for side tours to halong bay , sapa, that would be great...

    Halong Bay is good for a 1 nite stay.

    i opted for the 3 day 2 nite package when i was there and TOTALLY REGTRETTED IT !!

    It's a Dead town at nite with practically nothing to do..

    1st stop there is usually the SURPRISING Cave..haha..


    one more thing..

    dun get the Boat stay!!

    ~!@#$R%^&

    stay in the hotel.


    Can bring back some highland coffee powder ??

    dear all, sorry. can i side track a bit here??


    juz wanna ask how u all feel abt the issue of bird flu in vietnam? for a long time i was having this gung ho attitude abt not being afraid. but i read in the papers recently abt how WHO mentioned that a bird flu is due every 27 years. the last time vietnam caught one was 37 years ago. therefore, according to WHO, this flu bug is long overdue and can happen anytime from now.

    i'm thinking of going there for a holiday cum photoshoot in july.....

    The chance of u getting it is much smaller than in a car accident or plane crash.
    Pray that your plane is safe 1st.
