About Hoi An
Hoi An is an ancient city on the East-Central coast of Vietnam. It is in Quang Nam Province and has a population of about 120,000 people.
In the 15th to 19th century, it was a major South East Asia Trading port and part of the Cham Kingdom. One can still feel the ancient French, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Indian and local influence. This town has well preserved its heritage buildings. It is now a World Heritage UNESCO site.
Serious shipping business has long since moved to Da Nang. The winding lanes and Chinese-styled shop-houses extrude a particular atmospheric feel in the evening as the sun goes down. There are a lot of places to dine and the food here is great.
The Photosafari Trip
This is a short 4 days 3 nights weekend trip to Hoi An. This is the place to shoot some pictures, good food and enjoy a good relaxing weekend. Last year, we organised a trip here and were really impressed with the facilities and shooting locations.
We will have the sunrise shoot at Cua Dai Seagate where fishermen use giant fishing nets to catch fish. We will be bringing a couple of models dressed in traditional Ao Dai to shoot around this ancient village. There are many more shooting situations and locations in both Hoi An and Da Nang. Why not come and see it for yourself?
