Overview

Join Arnaud on one of his Photographic Day-trippers and explore the vibrant Saigon through the lense of your camera. You will discover the city's most emblematic monuments, but also it's less travelled back alleys, all the while receiving feedback and instructions on how to improve your shots. We also offer a 24H Tour in the Mekong Delta taking you to its Floating Markets at the golden hour.
