Vietnam: Part 1

Ho Chi Minh City

In October last year, (2013) myself and my family went to Vietnam for a holiday. We traveled from the south to the north and I was amazed at the rich culture and friendly people that I encountered. Poverty was everywhere and most of the streets were filthy. I often wondered how silly we fat, soft, sweaty, Australian tourists must look!! Anyway, here is a selection of my favourite images from Ho Chi Minh

Inside a Vietnamese temple

The phones that the army HQ used to contact the various sections of the army

A typical street vendor

Incense burning

A block of housing

One of my many photographs of the mess of powerlines:D

When the light turns green in Vietnam

A cathedral

Holding on for dear life

I like the symmetry in this shot

Love the lighting in this shot

A boy eating his lunch whilst riding a motorcycle. Multitasker

Discarded bunch of flowers

A lady making edible rice paper

A guide demonstrating at the Chu Chi Tunnels

This was our guide while we were in Ho Chi Minh, his name is Hung. He fought in the Vietnamese war for the Viet Kong. He had so little to eat during this period that as a 21 year old, he weighed 38kgs. He is describing the traps he made while he was in the army

Timers on traffic lights
Part 2 coming soon hopefully:D


  1. Wow! Sounds like you had an amazing time! A lot of the shots look like they could be in India. The photos are amazing too.
