A Slightly Cooler Hanoi

It’s that time of the year again, when I’m not so scared of the ridiculously hot and humid Hanoi Summers and step out of my heavily air conditioned shelter. So I’ve managed to go out a couple of times and enjoyed not instantly sweating through all of my clothes and my lens not fogging up in the humidity. Here’s what it looked like.


The gap between the rich and poor is growing like everywhere else in the world, but it does seem to me to be remarkably obvious here in Hanoi.


Another observation of contrast, this time between generations.


Long Bien Bridge, designed by Mr. Eiffel of Eiffel Tower fame.


Almost there.


This market is absolutely swarming with people during the early hours of the day, not so much in the late afternoon.


She definitely was not happy about me taking her picture.

  1. TVO314,
    My name is Huy. I am currently an editor for Soha.vn, an online news publication, covering political world news. Recently, I’ve been trying to soften my world news section a bit by incorporating stories of foreigners’ perspectives on Vietnam. Not travelers, but veteran expats who have been in the country for quite some time. And you certainly fit the bill with your stunning photos of Vietnam. I, as well as the audience, would love to hear more about the stories behind these breathtaking photos and your overall experience in Vietnam.
    With that, I’d like to ask if we could have a little chat (I purposely refrain from using the word “interview”) about your life experience in Vietnam? It won’t take more than 30 minutes. If you’re on board with the idea, please let me know via email at huydnguyen92@gmail.com so we can set something up.
    Thank you for reading this and I look forward to hearing back from you.
