The choice of the article to publish this morning was simple. As our slogan is « Seeing is simply seeing without knowing about what is being seen … Follow us to know more about Vietnamese dishes, culture and more” we are posting what a group of photographers were exhibiting their collection outdoors in the Central Highlands town of Da Lat, infusing daily life with great splashes of spirit and color.

Huynh Thanh Huy’s capture of Saigonese braving the rain to watch the 2018 ASIAD semifinal game between Vietnam and South Korea broadcast live on Nguyen Hue pedestrian street in HCMC’s District 1.
A woman holding a rainbow umbrella crosses Hoang Sa Street in HCMC’s District 3 against a backdrop of colored corrugated iron sheets.
“Saigon is always bustling and streets here are crowded with people, and the scenes of daily lives with vibrant colors on street corners makes me optimistic and love this urban life,” Huy said.
Another one of Huy’s photos shows a security guard walking past a wall covered with a graffiti painting of a woman with a floral hairdo on Su Van Hanh Street in HCMC’s District 10.
This photo of Virgin Mary in front of the Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral in downtown HCMC was taken by Nguyen Vu Ngoc Duc as the city entered the Covid lockdown in 2020.
Another one of Duc’s abstract photos captures a man looking out from his window as HCMC went into a prolonged lockdown period last year, forcing all residents to stay at home for months.
In this pandemic related picture, Duc captures a collage of daily life inside a locked-down HCMC alley last year.
Landmark 81, Vietnam’s tallest building, rises above the HCMC skyline in this brilliant sunset picture by Tran Trung Bao.
Bao gets another beautiful sunset picture of a man walking through a misty pine forest in the Central Highlands town of Da Lat.
His penchant for sunrises and sunsets nets Bao this stunner of a boat in Ha Long Bay an early foggy morning.
Dinh Cong Tam’s collection, mainly focusing on the spiritual lifestyle of the Khmer people in the Mekong Delta province of Soc Trang, has some surreal touches.
Pictured is a Buddhist novice monk standing near the giant Reclining Buddha at the Som Rong Pagoda in Soc Trang.
An ancient Ngo boat at Sang Ke in Long Phu District, Soc Trang Province.
Ngo is a snake-shaped boat of the Khmer people that is used in traditional boat races. Each boat is about 22-27 m long and can accommodate about 50 people.
First organized in 2013, the Khmer boat race has become a signature Mekong Delta event and indispensable to Ok-om-Bok festival celebrations. The festival falls on the 15th day of the 10th lunar month (October 31 this year). It is a time for the Khmer to show their gratitude to the Moon Goddess for bumper harvests and aquatic bounties.

The three-month Buddhist Lent season for Buddhist monks of the Theravada sect lasts from the 16th of the sixth lunar month to 15th day of the ninth lunar month.
The exhibition called Dalat Rendez-vous is open on the campus of Stop And Go Art Space on Ly Tu Trong Street in Da Lat until November.
