You are picked up at 4.45am at your hotel to take a boat trip to Duy Hai village. We board the local ferry for Duy Hai fishing hub which is filled with boats and sampans. Not many travelers venture here, so expect plenty of attention from the locals. You will see the fishermen bring in their catch from a night at sea on the river delta; where ocean and river meet, and witness how locals smoke and dry the fish. There is ample opportunity to capture the morning light spilling across the water, to get shots of light filtering through the fish smoking chamber and plenty of countryside greenery to give you contrast. During your cycling time along this narrow dirt- road, you will have a chance to interact with local daily life, school, and raucous Noi Rang market. Here, Noi Rang market marks its name on Vietnam map for its ashes business since 1970s.
