Highlights

Explore the intriguing stretch of railway running between Hanoi and Long Bien Station – and directly across the city – on this unique tour.

We capture the astonishing variety of life on the tracks, from railway workers and trains to the houses and markets all the way along the line, while focusing on key points of photographic composition.

Passing trains and various light requirements, as well as the traffic that rushes between each section of the line, provides the opportunity to look at technical points such as ISO settings and Shutter Priority mode, while our journey along the tracks and encounter with the locals means a chance to pick up some professional photojournalism tips on building a story and photographing people.

We drop by a local restaurant for breakfast and coffee. It's time for everyone to select their masterpieces and share with your friends!
