During more than 30 days of traveling alone throughout Vietnam, Phan Dung used a drone to record the beautiful scenery of the country from above with the perspective that “not everyone can see”.
Phan Van Dung was born in 1997 in Binh Thuan, and currently lives and works in Ho Chi Minh City. He has just completed a 32-day solo trip across Vietnam, through 33 provinces and cities across the country with a distance of nearly 5,000 km. This trip was recorded by Dung with a flycam with many live angles from above that “not everyone can see” without equipment.
According to Dung, he wants his trip to have new and broader perspectives, different from the low-level scenery often seen on the road. In the photo is a coastal road in Ninh Thuan , on the side is the blue sea, on the side of the majestic rocky mountains.
Boats anchored in Mui Ne fishing village , Phan Thiet city, Binh Thuan province create a peaceful scene. Currently, the coastal city of South Central Vietnam is in the most beautiful season, the sea water is clear and cool from April to August.
On the 4th day of the trip, Dung set foot in Vinh Hy Bay, the winding sea road, the clear blue water color harmonizing the heaven and earth, making the 25-year-old man impressed, he had to say because he didn’t think it was in real life. . Vinh Hy is located in Ninh Hai district, northeast of Ninh Thuan province, the coastal scenery in harmony with the mountainous nature makes this place likened to Ha Long Bay in the Central region.
Nha Trang city, Khanh Hoa province, seen from above, stands out with a long coastline and high-rise hotel buildings along Tran Phu street. According to Dung, he was impressed with the city by its peaceful features, diverse and attractive local cuisine.
Another corner of Nha Trang with the Tran Phu bridge spanning the mouth of the Cai River into the sea, this is the largest river in Khanh Hoa province. In the distance are mountains that shield the city.
The scenery of the coastal area of Phu Yen , the land of “yellow flowers on green grass” is as beautiful as a picture with houses with orange red tile roofs along the coast.
Hon Yen and Hon Dun (Hon Hon) are unspoiled with strangely shaped rocks that stand out in the middle of the sea. The destination is located in Nhon Hoi village, An Hoa commune, Tuy An district, about 20 km from Tuy Hoa city. The two islands are about 100 meters from the shore, in the dry season, visitors can walk to the island to admire, take pictures of corals and marine life.
Quy Hoa valley belongs to Ghenh Rang ward, Quy Nhon city, Binh Dinh province with a long straight beach, golden sand and clear blue water, about 7 km south of the city center. This area is also known as Quy Hoa leprosy village, the place where leprosy patients have been received and treated since 1929, used to be the place where poet Han Mac Tu lived the last days of his life. Quy Hoa’s nature is peaceful with rows of ancient casuarinas, and the sound of waves lapping all day and night.
The coastal resorts and hotels in Da Nang , Phan Dung love the city because of its beautiful terrain, clean sea, roads, well-planned amusement parks and resorts, and no enticing tourists. In addition, this place is close to Hue City and Hoi An , Quang Nam, convenient to combine tourism, and increasing experience.
During this trip through Vietnam, Dung only planned to go to the central coast, did not have the opportunity to experience the northern sea and will spend it on another trip. For him, even though it is the same coastal city, each place in Vietnam has its own beauty and impression.
“I think young people should go through Vietnam, safely and according to plan, to experience the beauty of the country that sometimes can’t be felt through photos. You have to experience it with your own eyes, heart and soul. It’s not the food we eat, the place we sleep and play, but the value that we feel the breath of life,” said Phan Dung.
