Get Invaluable Photography Guidance
“I was very much a beginner photographer and still have much to learn, but Colm and the team launched me into the world of f-stops, shutter speed and ISO. And to my surprise, I got some pretty amazing pictures. My husband got some National Geographic quality pictures--I truly mean it--his expertise improved immensely and I think he could sell his work.” – Jo Anna (USA)

Discover Breathtaking Hidden Scenery

“Mã Pì Lèng Gorge in Hà Giang is one of those few spots in Northern Vietnam where you stop and wonder, ‘how is this place not teeming with tourists?’ The views are astounding as you weave through the jagged mountainous terrain. The ViF crew does an amazing job uncovering this hidden corner of the country, and I recommend their tours to all friends who travel to Vietnam.” – Sam W (USA)

Meet The Local Ethnic Minorities

“The people are incredibly friendly and outside of the towns, are most often in traditional dress. These people are also some of the most friendly and welcoming people in Asia. The Vietnam in Focus team speaking the local language was essential. Highly recommended!” – Bruce (South Africa)​

Stay In Tranquil Accommodation

“Auberge de Meo Vac was amazing. The simple, yet luxurious accommodation hidden in the backroads of the small village provided resort-like amenities and the most delicious fusion Vietnamese food. A must-visit for any city dweller seeking a place of solitude and tranquil beauty.” – Michele L (Malaysia)

Enjoy A Hands-On Experience

“Trudging through paddy fields to get to a photo op, and helping the field hands... now that is hands-on. The farmers were pretty surprised when we turned up and started mucking in...especially as I did it correctly. Give me a pick, axe, shovel any being stuck in a kitchen!” – Karen W (Australia)

Colm’s Photography Tip

I always find that using people seems to bring out the best in a landscape. People add scale to the picture, it also draws the viewer into the picture, making the picture stronger, giving the photo a sort of personal touch the viewer can relate to. Karen Willshaw’s wonderful shot of women fishing in a river outside Mù Cang Chải is a very good example of this.

Alex's Travel Tip

Look out for the 'chợ phiên', or small country markets in Hà Giang, which are always packed with local tribes people, trading, bargaining or simply catching up with old friends. Perfect for portraits, but also to get a real sense of daily life for the H'mong, Dzao and other ethnic minorities. You can even pick up some homemade mountain honey or a buffalo to take home!
