Crossing Bridges 8 Vietnam 2011



Vietnam originally organized Crossing Bridges 3 with a programme based in the northern capital city of Hanoi moving through picturisque Halong Bay and further north into the mountain region of Sapa in 2006.  It was their FIRST time participating in Crossing Bridges and they put together a fantastic trip without any prior first hand participation experience.

During that same year, we saw PhotoMalaysia sending its first team as well participating in CrossingBridges

Five years later in 2011, Vietnam under undertook again the challenge of organizing Crossing Bridges 8 this time planning a route that took participants from Ho Chi Min City through to the coastal areas and then into the hills of Dalat

The actual places we visited and shot at were:

Long Son

Nha Lon Long Son was created by a man nicknamed Tran, whose real name was Le Van Muu, a follower of An Giang-based Tu An Hieu Nghia religion. He come to the region and set up the house in the beginning of the 20th century”
