Recommend Beautiful Filming Locations in Vietnam

Vietnam has long been known as a country blessed with stunning natural landscapes and a diverse terrain, from mountains and hills to white sandy beaches, majestic caves, and winding mountain passes. Beyond that, this small nation also possesses many characteristics of an agricultural country on the edge of Southeast Asia, such as vast fields stretching as far as the eye can see, terraced rice paddies in harvest season, ethnic minority villages, or coastal fishing hamlets.

If you wish to visit the beautiful country of Vietnam and capture footage of its people, their way of life, and the natural landscapes here, then I would not hesitate to recommend the following must-visit destinations to you.

1. Mu Cang Chai Terraced Fields

Located in the Northwest of Vietnam, where the terrain is predominantly high mountains, the local ethnic people have long utilized the mountains, ranging from 800 to 1700 meters above sea level, for rice cultivation. In the water pouring season (May - June), the terraced fields exhibit a raw, simple beauty with a dominant palette of deep colors, truly reflecting the essence of the Northwestern highlands. At this time, Mù Cang Chải is a blend of the brown earth mixed with white clouds, blue skies, and shimmering water surfaces, reflecting various shades of light. If during the day, the terraced fields sparkle like gold under the sunlight, then at night, they become mystical under the silver glow of the moon, layered over the water creating magical light and dark patches, making these fields a giant ink wash painting incomparable.

Every autumn (September, October) throngs of tourists flock to this destination to behold the terraced fields shimmering like "golden stairways". Everywhere you look, fields ripe with harvest are arranged in tiers, layer upon layer stretching across the hillsides, each level connecting to the next as if reaching for the sky. Each plot, sown at a different time, displays a unique hue, with areas gleaming in golden light and others a mix of green and gold. Thus, the colorful fields of Mu Cang Chai extend across the majestic mountainsides, creating a moment so beautiful it resembles a giant autumnal painting, capturing the hearts of the fortunate travelers who get to witness it.

It can be said that Mu Cang Chai is a masterpiece created by the harmonious blend of human endeavor and nature. This location is undoubtedly a perfect setting for producing incredibly beautiful footage, especially when captured with drone equipment.

2. Ha Long Bay

Located in Quang Ninh province, a province in the Northeast of Vietnam, Ha Long Bay has been recognized as a World Natural Heritage by UNESCO. Notably, Ha Long Bay occupies a unique geographical position, surrounded by large and small limestone islands which contribute to its clear blue waters, cool and gentle breeze, and clean air, offering visitors a comfortable and safe experience throughout their journey of exploration and enjoyment of the beautiful scenery at Ha Long Bay.

The best time to capture the most beautiful footage in Ha Long is from February to July each year. The weather during this period is very cool, with gentle light, seldom foggy, and little rain. With just a professional camera or a drone, you can be assured of obtaining stunning natural scenery footage of this place.

3. Son Doong Cave

Son Doong is the largest cave system on the planet and also the most majestic cave in Vietnam. Although it was officially explored only recently, this cave has quickly become famous, achieving international recognition and receiving high praise from both domestic and international media. Not only does it boast pristine and grand beauty, but Son Doong Cave is also renowned for its diverse landscapes, including an underground river system, sedimentary rock formations, sinkholes, sky wells, and fossil corridors. ABC News' Good Morning America co-anchor Ginger Zee exclaimed that the scenery inside the cave resembles that of the movie Avatar, suggesting that if this location had been discovered earlier, perhaps Hollywood filmmakers could have saved billions of dollars on special effects.

Capturing beautiful footage in Son Doong is not an easy feat due to many areas lacking light. The high humidity inside the cave can also affect specialized filming equipment. Therefore, in addition to preparing lighting equipment, it is necessary to protect the machinery from moisture during the filming process. Son Doong Cave was once used as a backdrop for filming the stunning scenes in the movie Kong - Skull Island (2017). If you want to see how truly magnificent it looks on film, this movie is a perfect reference.

4. The rice fields in Tam Coc, Ninh Binh

In Tam Coc, Ninh Binh, the rice fields stretch along both sides of the Ngo Dong River and are surrounded by mountains and caves. The rice begins to ripen at the start of summer, around mid-May. Rice is grown in a single crop, with seedlings planted from January to the Lunar New Year and harvested at the end of May or the beginning of June.

Many tourists visit Tam Coc in the summer and choose the Hang Mua Ecolodge as a spot to view the panoramic rice fields from above. After conquering nearly 500 steps to the top of Ngoa Long mountain, you will have a sweeping view of the beautiful Ninh Binh river and mountain region, with its vast golden fields.

From a distance, the scene is incredibly majestic, with the vast blue sky, the tall forests behind, and the beauty of the ancient tower casting shadows over time. It is recommended to take photos from 9-11 am, preferably on a sunny day or the day after rain when the grass and rice flowers are fresher.

5. The Imperial City of Hue

The Imperial City of Hue is a massive construction involving tens of thousands of people and millions of cubic meters of soil and stone, along with a tremendous amount of work such as river filling, moat digging, population relocation, grave moving, and city building. Initially, the fortress was built with soil and later constructed with bricks towards the end of King Gia Long's reign.

The architecture of the complex is a tight integration of traditional architectural principles and Eastern philosophy, including the Chinese theory of Yin-Yang and the Five Elements. Notably, the design of the Imperial City of Hue also reflects the influence of Western military architecture, specifically the Vauban style. Therefore, the construction is not only aesthetically pleasing but also holds significant meaning in terms of feng shui and military strategy.

The Imperial City of Hue is not only a typical representative of the feudal Vietnamese culture but also a historical witness to the struggles against foreign invaders. To capture beautiful footage in Hue, my advice is to avoid the period from October to December, as this is the rainy season. Besides, any other time of the year is golden for capturing beautiful scenes.

6. Đa Lat City

The final destination I want to introduce to you in this journey of exploring Vietnam is Da Lat. Peacefully situated at an altitude of 1,500 meters above sea level, the city of Da Lat is surrounded by cool, fresh pine forests, creating a gentle and cool mountain climate all year round.
