14+ journey-worthy photos of daily life in Vietnam
Vietnam, less than forty years after the cruelty and bloodshed of war, is brimming with optimism. Todd Weselake, a travel photographer, focuses on what life is like now in this resilient country—a region of magnificent natural beauty with a distinct heritage—in a series of pictures.
Vietnam welcomed me in with a blur of beautiful smiles, exotic flavours, and intense scooter rides. Rising up from the devastation of the Vietnam War, the Vietnamese people have rallied with grace and resilience to embrace tourism to become one of the fastest-growing emerging economies in the world.
From the early morning food markets to the meals made at the hands of our homestay hosts, Vietnam offered, hands down, the best food out of any of the 30 countries I’ve visited. I was enticed by some of the freshest, tastiest, and most unique ingredients I’ve ever experienced. The 10 days I spent there were packed with authentic adventures and experiences of an enchanting and colourful culture.
