Hi every one. As a Fixer in Vietnam and a travel photographer who has been traveling around Vietnam since 2007, I would like to write this article to help you who love photography and want to know more about Tra Vinh Province so you can travel there alone and find interesting things to photograph.
Tra Vinh is one of my favorite locations in the Mekong Delta. I have been here so many times since I first started learning photography. The diversity of subject and culture in this province give me great photography oppoturnity. Even though not many tourists visit this area, I think it’s very photogenic and you can definately get some great pics if you visit this province.
Hope you find this article helpful. There you go.
Ba Om Pond is one of the most well-known location to local people. The local people will gather here in the early morning and afternoon walking around. The pond also has lotus and very nice at night. It’s great for street photography and night photography here. It’s located just a few kilometers away from Tra Vinh City Center. Easy to find.
It’s a cambodian pagoda and what interested me most is that the monks here will do wood carving and sell that to visitors to produce enough profit to keep the pagoda alive. If you come here, you will see the monks here making beautiful wood products. Some are giantic. It’s very nice and photogenic. A great location for photography in Tra Vinh City.
What else to shoot in Tra Vinh City? In the early morning, you just get out of the city and go to the ouskirt. It’s beautiful there and you will see the true picture of this province.
There are many traditional handcraft villages that make traditional products. You must take your time to visit:
Another great activity that I love to photography in Tra Vinh is Salt harvesting in Duyen Hai District. But it’s too bad that the village had disappeared after the coal plant operated.
What else to shoot in Tra Vinh? I think you must stay at least one night in Duyen Hai district to visit Ba Dong Beach in the early morning. it’s great for Milky way photography at night also. Since it’s a coastal town, you will have plenty of chance to shoot beach and fishing acitivities.
I really love shooting fishing activities in Duyen Hai district because the local fishermen still use traditional fishing method to catch fish. It doesn’t require a boat to catch fish.
I have many photos in this coastal village and I will share some that I like because If I share all of them. It will be too many.
