I wanted to share a few of my favourite photos from my recent trip to Vietnam but only managed to whittle them down to 90 which is still way to many for one post, so I’m going to have to divide them up. I have every intention of writing about each of the 3 regions we visited and share more in-depth photos of these places, and need to talk about the food too, but that is going to have to wait for another day. Life is a little busy right now as everyone is racing to finish up for the year so the deadlines are on. I’m hoping to get these up by the middle of December or so.

I prefer to tell stories from a visual perspective so here are the first lot in no particular order. They will all make sense when I put them in context later on. You will see a ton of pictures of markets and people selling and making food on the side of the road. This is something that completely hits you when you visit Vietnam. All available pavement space and side streets are taken up by informal vendors making or selling food. I have never seen such incredible produce in my life. Better then you can find in any retailer in South Africa, in abundance and everywhere. 

You can see the rest of my pictures in part 2 and part 3.

  1. Hi Sam, thoroughly enjoyed going through your Vietnam images. Without a shadow of doubt, I think, you are one of the very few ‘food bloggers’, who is also a formidable photographer. This is coming from a guy who has been shooting professionally for over 50 years, the last 30 as a food photographer in the advertising industry in India. Keep up the good work.

    Oh my goodness Swapan that is so very kind of you to say. Thank you! 🙂

    Well, I could echo Swapan’s comments. Only difference being that I’ve done only a half dozen food shoots over my last 50 years. The rest? Fashion, Lifestyle, Annual Reports and lotsa lanscapes & travel.
    Well done Samantha – or “Manta” as my daughter like to be called…
    And your blog really is one of the very best. Love to see what you and that Bourdain fellah would come up with.

  4. I totally relate to the photos you make while travelling… stunning work and love your eye!

    Thank you so much for the kind words.
