5:30 am: Pick up from your Danang hotel or meeting point and travel along the Danang coastline to the first destination. 

5:45 am: Arrive at one of Danang's bustling beach markets. Get your camera ready and pick the brain of your professional-photographer tour guide for some last-minute tips and tricks before going out into the fray. 

Danang’s waterfront at dawn is a mad foray of fish mongers and fishermen hauling their overnight catch up on to the beach direct to market. Sunrise tops off the scene as the early morning rays hit the coastline to semi-illuminate the action surrounding you.

Fishermen carry their haul in bamboo coracles to a small curve of beach, where a vibrant market awaits. On the horizon, traditional teakwood trawlers lay at anchor in the East Sea as the rising sun turns the sky gold.

7:00 am: Stop and take a rest at a local Danang cafe and try some local coffee, tea, and juice. 

8:00 am: From seascapes and markets, our photographic focus turns to portraits of working life, as we head up to Danang port. We mingle with ice-loaders, and capture the rhythms of their sweat-drenched labour.  It all makes for an unforgettable adventure in Danang’s maritime heart, with stunning pictures to document it.

Moving into the docks you’ll get a real insight into the working life in the Ice factory and the boat yards as craftsmen are busy at their jobs. Expect some fantastic action shots and portraits of workers and moving machinery

10:00 am: The tour finishes and we drop you off at your hotel or meeting point.
