The Other Vietnam: A Cultural Photo Tour

A cultural photography tour with Roger Nelson and Son Nguyen

This is an initial itinerary which we suggest for an extraordinary photo tour and can be customized for your dates and interests.

Vietnam is not a new entry on the photo tour circuit, so why is A Different Perspective offering this trip? Because there are very few places on earth that can offer the kind of vast variety of photography experiences. From authentic tribal cultures to endless rural landscapes and throbbing busy cities Vietnam offers amazing photographic opportunities.

Many different people have conquered, occupied and influenced this land creating the extraordinarily interesting culture of today. As we do whenever we visit must see classic destinations, we deliver Vietnam in a totally different way.

You will visit the most photogenic sites throughout the country including ancient capitals and modern cities including Ho Chi Min City, Hoi An, Hue, Hanoi and Halong Bay. You will come home with jaw-dropping photos of the people that live here and the places they live and work in.
