What you'll do

If you need a local friend to experience the beauty of Hanoi from a different perspective, I can provide you not only a film camera with a film roll but also the joy of taking film photos while wandering around both well-known and hidden gems of the capital city.

I will teach you how to take a film photo with the best manual camera setup for beginners, from choosing film, loading film to rewinding film, taking care of your negatives and practical tips and tricks to make your film photos look better. And also, I can discuss with you guys from film photography, traveling to anything you want to know about the history and culture of Hanoi and Vietnam.

Also I will make small adjustments based on your needs so let me know what time works best for you. Here's the schedule:
- Hanoi French Quarters.
- A few lesser-known sceneries in Hoan Kiem or Ba Dinh District to explore heritage apartments and buildings, local life.
- Hanoi Old Quarters / Long Bien Bridge / West Lake (depends on the weather).

Notes:
- I will carry more than one film roll but only the first one is 100% free (price + developing cost included).
- The link to access all of your photos will be available for 30 days.
- Transportation fee is NOT included.
- You will have a 20% discount if you book 2 weeks in advance.

The Old Quarter of Hanoi is where I was born, grew up and I want to share my personal experiences about this simultaneously ancient and modern capital city of Vietnam to any traveler. If you need a local friend who will not only take memorable photos of you, but also proudly to introduce his country’s history and culture to the world, then hit me up on Airbnb, and together we will explore the city’s hidden gems.

In October 2019, my experience and I were featured on a Temasek x Google's micro-documentary about how the Internet can empower young people to succeed in their own terms in South East Asia: facebook.com/watch/?v=1428694367279440

I highly recommend doing this experience with Long! You can tell that he’s very knowledgeable in photography, yet at the same time he’s great at making everything understandable for a complete beginner as well. And since he’s both local to the area you’ll walk around AND a very good conversationalist, walking around with him is a lot of fun. He has lots of stories and insights to share, and after the experience I felt like I had gained a much better understanding of Hanoi and Vietnam.

Long is very passionate about film and Hanoi! He was rather detailed in his explanation on how to use a SLR camera. I enjoyed learning more about Hanoi and it was nice to hear stories from his childhood growing up in the Old Quarter. I highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to see a more local version of Hanoi.
