In addition, the profession of making noodles is also a traditional beauty for international photographers to compose photos of the work process. The rice fields during the planting and harvesting season, the lush green vegetable gardens on the outskirts of Can Tho, the alleys of a small village, daily life activities of the locals are also interesting topics ”

Speaking about the tourism potential of Can Tho city, Mr. Nguyen Vu Phuoc said that “The people of Can Tho in particular and the Western region in general are very friendly so it is also a good condition for international photographers to compose photos of everyday life. Can Tho cuisine is very delicious, travelers can easily choose their favourite food even if they are fussy eaters. The lack of information and beautiful images makes the traditional craft villages become less attractive to tourists. However, the Photo Tours which I am exploiting right now is a unque form of tourism, because the natural conditions, distinctive and impressive space are paid close attention; thereby attracting guests to compose photos in these places... ”

It can be said that the unique and meaningful works of photographer Nguyen Vu Phuoc about a pure Can Tho will be a reminder of why this city by the Hau River is attractive to visitors that much.
