Hanoi Photography Tour

My guide Ewie (apologies for incorrect spelling!) was very good at picking out interesting scenes to photograph as well as introducing me to local markets, cafe and spots I wouldn’t have probably seen myself. He was also very helpful in assisting me set up my camera for great shots. Highly recommended!

Visit a Unique Ceramic Village with a Local

We truly loved our pottery class with Thanh. And not only that. She is a very knowledgeable and curious person. She took us to some porcelain and pottery workshops to see beautiful things. We booked a full day tour. So we also tried lacquer painting. We visited artist’s workshop. If that’s not all we learned about Vietnamese culture and society. We took home with us egg shell decorated plates and hopefully will soon receive our pottery bowls. Thank you for the great experience, Thanh!
