I love getting up before dawn. I feel the fullness when I see the first rays of the rising sun which begins to whiten the horizon. This morning I offer you a winsome beauty at dawn in the lens of photographer Nguyen Ngoc Tuan. Must See in Vietnam Editor
Pink cherry blossoms glow as the sun shines across tea hills along National Highway 4D leading to O Quy Ho Mountain Pass, around 15 kilometers from downtown Sa Pa.
In recent years, tea hills here have become a tourist destination especially during the year-end season as cherry trees see their leaves changing colors and replaced around October to November.
Hanoi-based photographer Tuan said he has traveled across Vietnam for the past two years to carry out his photo series of dawn beauty.
Long Bien Bridge, a symbol of Hanoi, is blanketed in early morning mist.
The bridge across the Red River was designed and built by French firm Dayde-Pillie in September 1898. It opened to traffic in 1903, running more than 1,691 meters in length, with a rail track in the middle and roads either side.
A fisherman starts his new day on Quang Lang Beach in Thai Thuy District in the northern province of Thai Binh.
Quang Lang villagers have survived on fishing and processing aquatic products for many generations.
In the early morning, visitors can easily see local fishermen wading across the sand to catch fish, crabs or snails.
Dawn on a sedge field in Nong Cong District in the north central province of Thanh Hoa.
This sedge growing area is considered the largest in the north central region, with an area of more than 300 hectares spread over 10 communes.
Sedge harvest season takes place in the fifth and sixth lunar months.
Dawn on at Bay Mau nipa palm forest, an eco-tourism site in Hoi An ancient town in the central province of Quang Nam.
The forest is around three kilometers from the UNESCO heritage town of Hoi An, in Cam Thanh Commune. It sheltered Vietnamese troops from shelling and raids during the Vietnam War.
In 2009, local authorities recognized the Bay Mau nipa palm forest as an eco-tourism site and allowed locals to offer coracle tours and homestay services to boost tourism.
The first rays of sunlight fall on Ban Viet Lake in Trung Khanh District of Cao Bang Province on the border with China as sau sau trees (Chinese sweet gum) add their allure with yellow and red leaves.
Ban Viet Lake, which spreads over an area of five hectares, is a great camping and trekking spot. Apart from sightseeing along winding roads, visitors can take a boat trip on the freshwater lake.
Two little girls in school uniform cycle along a path in Chu Pah District in the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai, lined on both sides with large pine trees that are over 100 years old.
The misty landscape along the 800-meter-long path in the early morning has in recent years drawn the attention of many photographers.
Eo Gio Strait in beach town Quy Nhon in the south central coast is captured at dawn.
The arc-shaped strait encompassed by rocky mountains has become popular with tourists thanks to its unique geographical feature.
Hon Yen (Yen Islet), around 15 kilometers to the north of Tuy Hoa, not far from Quy Nhon, is a sight to behold at dawn.
Dawn on Du Sinh Hill, about six kilometers from downtown Da Lat, a popular town in the Central Highlands.
From the top of the hill, visitors can see the bright red sunrise covering the sky.
“With this photo series, I want to promote Vietnam’s beauty to international friends,” said Tuan.
