Hai Van Pass Horizons
Cross the iconic coastal mountain pass, before exploring life at Lang Co Lagoon
We set out at dawn and drive along the bay to the Hai Van Pass with some stops at a small local temple in the shape of a boat and a local beach to take photos of people doing their morning exercises. There are great scenic views all the way up to the pass, and we’ll be looking at how to compose these kinds of pictures to bring out the best in the landscape. We’ll stop at certain points to take photos, the first being an abandoned hotel that provides plenty of photographic opportunities at close quarters.
At the top we will break for coffee to enjoy the vast scenery then explore ruins on top of the pass. These ruins date from different time periods and paint a good picture of the history of Vietnam.
Next stop is the fishing town of Lang Co. Here, we can find a fantastic little fishing community on the edge of the lagoon, where the locals use traditionally hand-woven coracle boats to bring in their catch. Now we’re looking at how to shoot relationship shots, telling a story about the people in their working environment, in this case a stunning subtropical lagoon.
Time to hit the road back up the Hai Van Pass. On the way up, we’ll capture magnificent landscapes overlooking Lang Co lagoon and beach. This must be one of the most spectacular coastal roads in the world and is worth enjoying it to the fullest.
