Moc Chau Love Market
We travel from Hanoi to Moc Chau by private minibus on the evening of 31st August. On the morning of the 1st, we head into Moc Chau for the Love Market, spending the day and evening enjoying and photographing this unique event. Our base is at a comfortable hotel in town, giving us a tranquil respite from the crowds and a place to share feedback and editing advice on our photography. We then head out to our eco-lodge in the nearby countryside. Our final morning gives us a chance to explore the village and surrounding countryside, with a photographic focus on landscapes and portraiture. The area around Moc Chau is unique in Vietnam due to its soft climate and variety of agricultural produce, and we will visit fruit orchards, tea plantations and bee-keeping farms as we develop a photographic story of life in the region. We return to Hanoi in the late afternoon of the 2nd.

“Brilliant tour guide/instructor. Boris was simply amazing. My husband and I have very different levels of photography, him being experienced and me inept. Despite this Boris tailored it brilliantly so that we both got lots out of it, my husband improving technique and gaining the confidence in taking shots of locals, and me learning the basics enough to get some great shots.”
