Our number one private photography day tour experience
Got limited time but want to pack the most photos and fun into your Hanoi visit? Our Ultimate Hanoi Private Photo Experience is for you.
From bustling Old Quarter markets to colorful craft villages, and topped off with the capital’s moody, vibrant night-life, this is the perfect way to experience and photograph the true Hanoi vibe.
Shoot from Dawn till Dark
You’ll start out early with a dawn exploration of (the lesser-known) train street, Long Bien Bridge and wet market, and the best of the traditional Old Quarter.
After a delicious local breakfast (our favorite Hanoi phở or bánh mỳ) and rejuvenating Vietnamese coffee, we jump into our private car and head one hour south to Cu Da village. This is one of the best-preserved ancient villages within reach of the city center, specializing in the manufacture of vermicelli noodles. We’ll explore the atmospheric backstreets, then photograph locals drying vermicelli in fields of dazzling gold.
Next stop is nearby Quang Phu Cau village. Here we’ll capture incredible images of incense arranged in the sun – a rhapsody in red just made for travel photographers.
Time to head back to the Old Quarter for lunch, and we’ll then have a much-needed rest until 5:30pm.
We now head out for our final adventure in the capital, a night photography tour exploring the best and least-known spots to shoot after dark. Along the way, we’ll grab a bite to eat, before finishing up with the atmospheric changing of the guard at Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum.
Return to your hotel and farewell at 9:30pm.
What to Expect
