Danang Riverside by Night Photo Tour - A Vibrant Photography Experience

Photography Day Tours


Danang's Riverside by Night

An ever-changing skyline

Master new photography skills while exploring the Danang riverside by night. Capture the ever-changing skyline at sunset, cross the famous Dragon and Han bridges and explore the colorful city by the river.  This tour will show you the best of Danang after dark and allow you to focus on long exposure photography (so bring a tripod along!) but also on low light street photography.

We will focus on how to get the best photos of the colorful lights and create impactful pictures of the cityscape, but also look at how to tell a story about life here.  Shoot photos of locals and tourists alike mingling at coffee shops, bars and small street stalls in the evening, and capture the real feel of this bustling city.

If you take this tour on a weekend, be prepared for a surprise at the Dragon Bridge at the end of the tour.

Expectations from Danang Riverside by Night

Danang is a young and vibrant developing city. Dragon bridge is the pinnacle of such growth and no better place to start photographing. As the sun sets, the skyline begins to change, the city lights begin to flicker on. And the madness of rush  hour traffic makes long exposure photography a real pleasure and the results can be spectacular. Fluctuations in natural light and streaks of moving light from vehicles will light up your shots. Your photographer guide will help you explore the camera settings and compositions that can be achieved during this extraordinary time of day. 

Now that that chaos and evening traffic are in full swing well take a stroll capturing moving images and portraits in front of some very iconic buildings. And we’ll explore artificial light that can be manipulated and adapted through the camera and lens.

It all makes for a very exciting and enjoyable experience and you’ll come away with some great photos and knowledge to use in the future photography and evening explorations
