Thirty photos taken in exotic Bhutan by two Vietnamese photographers are on show in Phu My Hung, Ho Chi Minh City.
Nguyen Thanh Tung and Nguyen Thanh Hai, during their visits to the Himalayan kingdom in the past three years, captured rare of pretty little villages by forests, peaceful monasteries on snowy hillsides and friendly people celebrating traditional festivals, exhibition organizers said in a statement.
“Sitting at an altitude of more than 3,000 meters in a misty mountain, enjoying a sip of hot tea, watching the mountain trails, listening to birds’ singing in the beautiful Himalayas, I recognized why people say Bhutan is a happy country,” Tung said.
“After the trip, I recognized that there are many ways to bring happiness to myself, my family and people around.”
Tung used to be a photojournalist before opening a studio in HCMC in 2004. Hai is a freelance photographer and also an administrator of popular online photography forums in Vietnam and abroad
The exhibition, entry to which is free, at the Tajmasago Castle, 6 Pham Van Chuong Street, District 7, will go on until 8 p.m. on November 28.
