Two weeks of traveling with TVN S.A for a food show production
Filming in Vietnam has experienced two interesting weeks to explore many beautiful filming places throughout the country with a wonderful filming team and renowned Master Chef and Master Chef Junior, Michel Moran from Poland. The starting point was the unique Bac Ha market in the mountainous area of Northwest Vietnam. We came there on a foggy Sunday morning but very soon we felt energetic with the colorful and unique environment at the market. Many local ethnic minority people from nearby hills and mountains have come here to trade homemade products like vegetables, food, different kinds of animals like buffaloes, corks, cats, dogs, fish, and especially brocades woven by Dzao or H'Mong people. All of this makes Bac Ha market the largest, most interesting, and colorful one in Northwest Vietnam.
After shooting at Bac Ha market, we traveled to Sapa which has been one of the attractive filming locations in Northwest Vietnam. We came there in November, the time all rice was cut and fog covered all over the valley and rice terraces. But we still felt the hidden beauty.
From Sapa, we flew to HCMC to explore delicious street foods in the South and then discovered Cai Rang floating market in Mekong delta.
The following filming destinations in Vietnam of the Polish production team are Da Lat city in Central Highlands, Da Nang city, Imperial city of Hue, Ancient town of Hoi An, the capital city of Hanoi, and Halong bay.
After two weeks of filming across the country, the Polish team has explored Vietnamese cuisine from the North to the South, from mountainous area to the delta, amazing attractions and met friendly local people. Fixer team of Filming in Vietnam was confident that we had good cooperation and we also believed that Michel Moral will steal the show...
