Two weeks of travelling 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. Starting from unique Bac Ha market in the mountainous area of Northwest Vietnam. We came there on a foggy morning of Sunday 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 and most interesting and colourful one in Northwest Vietnam.

After shooting at Bac Ha market, we travelled 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.
