Hoi An Sunset Shared Photography Tour Hoi An Sunset Shared Photography Tour

Hoi An has been a world heritage site since 1999 and its charming old town has provided some of Vietnam’s most iconic images. If you would like to capture some of your own special photos, why not join a professional photographer and make the most out of your Hoi An visit? With some years resident in Hoi An, the photographer has explored each narrow street and ancient shop-house to know the best locations available. Etienne will escort you on a customized tour, delivering shot suggestions and instructions on how to improve your photography technique. You will be met in your hotel at 3.30pm and transferred to the old town where you will meet the professional photographer to enjoy a drink and a chance to talk about photography. A boat will then transfer you to a remote farming village along the river. Surrounded by rice fields and the river, it offers many opportunities to capture the daily life of workers, highlighted by the setting sun. Buffalos are grazing in the background, as well as small boats where people are cast net fishing. This scene is particularly impressive during the rice planting or harvesting time. Within the village, you will be more than welcome to capture portraits of old people and children playing. Stop to share a cup of tea or a glass of cold beer with a local family, and also to discuss about your shots and photography technique so far. The boat ride back to Hoi An coincides with the time when the sun offers its best colors, until twilight when you will return back to the old town and farewell the photographer. Return to town where your driver will be waiting to transfer you to your hotel.
