Vietnam – Saigon – The letter writer of Saigon

Now I’ve met him, the letter writer from Saigon. Mr. Ngo proudly told me at his post at Saigon Post Office that he was already on German television and immediately rummaged through the report of a German newspaper. Incidentally, Mr. Ngo speaks English and French, he translates all kinds of documents and he also writes love letters.


Vietnam – Cát Tiên – Kingfishers and butterflies wherever you look

The Cát Tiên National Park is a paradise for all insects friends and birdwatchers. About fifty percent of the park is covered by evergreen forest. The park is, like all others, also threatened by poaching and illegal woodcutting.



Vietnam – Da Nang – The red-shanked douc

Since Nang Vietnam’s fourth largest city is booming land prices are rising sharply. In relation to Saigon it is much less hectic, the average temperature is 25 ° C and the ocean with miles of beaches invites you to linger.


Vietnam – Buôn Ma Thuột – The coffee paradise

Like planned I made a small stopover on a coffee plant in the central highlands, to learn how coffee growing looks like and how people live from and with it.


Vietnam – Yok Đôn – The jungle is calling

At this time of the year there are usually only a few tourists in the park or, as in my case, none at all.


Vietnam – Saigon

Xin chào! Here I will occasionally report on my current tour in Vietnam. As always, it is about nature photography and the difficult, mostly unsuccessful search for rare wild cats. The first tour to a new country I do always to explore the possibilities and to search for promising locations, which I then use on another journey to come to success.
