  • Ha Giang is the northernmost province of Vietnam. The capital city is Ha Giang City, 312km from Hanoi. Due to poor roads and tightening security conditions in the past, Ha Giang was not open to foreign tourists until recently. Ha Giang is among the few places in Vietnam that are untouched by mass tourism. In fact, the area is not on the itinerary of most travellers (including the adventure travellers) to Vietnam. And Ha Giang is not visited frequently by Vietnamese tourists either.

We have never thought the city has become less of a charm for us; neither do we think we have got enough of this amazing capital city of Vietnam. The below photos were taken on one of our photographic tours during the traditional lunar new year of the Vietnamese: Tet.

  • Hanoi is the elegant capital city of Vietnam sprawling its way along the Red River banks. There are many lakes, parks and leafy quarters which make the city just freshly green all year round. Hanoi was first built in 1010 by King Ly Thai To who checked and found out that Fengshui of Hanoi was exceptionally good for the prosperity of the kingdom that time; Hanoi was called Thanh Long meaning "the city of ascending dragons" then.
