He caught a late bus from Hanoi, checked in at 9:30 p.m. and at this time, even though it was dark, the view of the lotus lake was still very beautiful. Lotus has a light pink color, has a rustic look, familiar to Vietnamese people. The young photographer shared that because he knew the lotus would bloom in the morning and gradually wither in the afternoon, he took advantage of the early time of the day, from 5:30 to 7:00, to capture the moment he wanted.

There is a place nestled at the foot of the mountain, the scenery is like a painting. 9X photographer chose a homestay inside the Mua Cave tourist area to conveniently visit Mua Cave and the pond.
