During recent weeks, #WhyVietnam became a rising social media trend that reflects the patriotism and the love for travelling of Vietnamese youth and international friends. Photos about Vietnam’s nature, culture and people accompanied with the hashtag #whyvietnam and heartfelt captions explaining why people love Vietnam have circulated social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram and received thousands of shares.
Stunning photos about Vietnam’s breathtaking natures, ingenuous culture, welcoming people and the beauty of each ethnic group, etc. have been actively shared by Vietnamese youth, international friends and high-profile celebrities these days.
Miss Vietnam 2016 Do My Linh lays out some thoughts about Sa Pa: “This is a photo that I took while I was filming for the S-Vietnam program in Sa Pa. The magnificent scenery was filled with majestic mountains and terrace farms. I love Vietnam for very simple things such as its beautiful landscape, its people and the smiles coming off from their faces.”
Miss Vietnam 2012 Dang Thu Thao also shares: “These recent days I’ve seen the youth start and spread a very meaningful trend called “Why Vietnam?”. Today I also want to follow the trend by sharing a self-taken photo while I was passing by Vinh Hy bay in Ninh Thuan, which is one of the most picturesque scenes I’ve ever witnessed. I love beaches, that’s a fact. Thus, even though I’ve been to so many places around the world, beaches in Vietnam still have a special place in my heart. That’s my answer to the question “Why do I love Vietnam?”. What about you?
Famous MC Hanh Phuc shares: “Buckwheat flower season in Ha Giang… Tiny and delicate flowers in white and purple in the highland’s cool weather. These are the reasons why I love Ha Giang and Vietnam. What about you? Share your photos about Vietnam along with the hashtag #whyvietnam to introduce our country’s images to tourists inside and outside Vietnam and let them know how beautiful this nation is. This campaign is launched by the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism.”
Nguyen Quynh Giang (Facebook: Me Bum): Hanoi alone already offers so many fantastic sceneries. And when I reached further to Ha Long Bay, I was immensely impressed by the untouched beauty of nature. When I travelled across the Middle Vietnam, the crystal clear streams and sea creatures such as crabs and fish dancing on water surface totally captured my heart. The Southern Vietnam also got me head over heels with its poetic landscapes that evoked my sense of patriotism. Our country is beautiful. Why don’t we promote its image to all international friends out there? Together let’s share the most striking photos about a fascinating Vietnam with the hashtag #WhyVietnam!
Nguyen Thi Hai Ha (also known as cartoonist Kawa Chan) claims: “I never stop loving Vietnam and its people. Love it for its one-of-a-kind “tra da” (iced-tea), for the local homies who are always willing to stay by myside through thick and thin and for the days I immerse myself in the beaming sunlight and the falling leaves.”
Vu Dang Khoa shares: “I love Vietnam because its people are hardworking and unpretentious.”
Sabrina Ji also reveals: “I love Vietnam because of its greenness. You don’t need to go far to find pristine nature when all you need is to walk out the lane and the majestic nature is already there welcoming you. Just one cornfield, one beanfield, the image of Mong and Thai people working, or a small lake, a group of kids playing on the field or a herd of buffalo can create such a romantic scene…”
Luca Nestola – an international photographer shares his photos about the life of H’mong people in Mu Cang Chai, Yen Bai after one hardworking day.
Those are the photos that unfold the Vietnamese and foreign friends’ love for Vietnam. And you, have you shared your best photos about Vietnam?
Another traveler named Viet Anh shares of a photo of Hanoi’s historic bridge Long Bien with an inviting message: “Come, experience and enjoy Vietnam. All the scenery, culture and people will not disappoint you.”
