Two-week travel itinerary in Vietnam: All you need to know

by

Vietnam is a surprising country by its people, its culture, its landscapes but especially by its way of living: at its own pace and with its own rules. It’s a journey you may have been planning for months, it quickly becomes a great adventure full of surprises.
For me, Vietnam turned out to be an unexpected journey, a journey of wonderful encounters, smiles, confrontations but also unexpected moments that transformed these two weeks in Vietnam in an incredible journey !

Portraits of Vietnam

by

The the richness of all my travels often comes down to meeting the other. Because, for me, going on a trip also means discovering the culture of the country by meeting its inhabitants. During my short stay in Vietnam, I met people who were rich in emotion and sharing. I want to share these few portraits to pay tribute to these people I had the chance to meet. To show their beauty and their differences. Behind each of these photos hides an exchange, sometimes brief, sometimes more intimate. Some people smile while waiting to receive something in return, others take a break after talking with you for hours…

Vietnam: Tam Coc, the Halong Bay on land

by

A wonderful surprise. Tam Coc, in the region of Ninh Binh, North Vietnam, is a small haven of peace where you are immersed in an impressive natural setting. Landscapes that can dethrone the very famous Halong Bay. Tam Coc is a small paradise in the middle of rice fields and mountains, far from chaos and crowds, where you live at the rhythm of people on their bikes. Here we discover rural Viet Nam, the one that plunges us into the daily life of farmers and rice farmers.
In short, that was my coup de coeur !

Vietnam: Sapa and the rice fields

by

Vietnam offers impressive and very different landscapes from one region to another. In the far north of the country, the Hoang Lien Son mountains and the rice terraces attract many visitors. Fair enough: the region of Sapa abounds in breathtaking views, and allows you to meet the many ethnic minorities who still live an authentic way of life at the rhythm of their traditions and beliefs.

Agra, the Indian jewel

by

Few months ago, I had no idea what Agra was. ‘It’s an Indian city’. Ok. ‘And one of the most visited cities in India’. Oh wait, what?. Yes, Agra has one of the seven wonders of the world, the beautiful Taj Mahal

A day in Mumbai, or Bombay

by

Mumbai, still called Bombay by locals, is the capital city of the state of Maharashtra. It’s also India’s financial capital and home to the Bollywood industry (the Hindi film and television business).
