As much as I’ve neglected this blog over the past few months, I feel as if I’ve neglected Vietnam even more. Work and travel and website redesigns and life in general have taken away most of my spare time, and I’ve also felt a bit lost for words, or at least meaningful words, and pictures. It’s not necessarily photographer’s block, as I’m shooting now more than ever, but it has left me a bit tired at the end of the day. Case in point: these pictures were taken several months ago.
I’ve spoken before about how beautiful Con Dao Island is, in southern Vietnam, but it warrants being mentioned again. Aside from, or rather along with, Ha Giang, in the northern mountains, it’s easily one of the most serene and pristine places I’ve traveled to within the country. I went there on assignment for a few magazines and to work for the recently-opened Six Senses Con Dao Resort. These photographs were all taken at the resort, over the course of two days. It was one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever stayed in. I can’t wait to get back.

Looks absolutely gorgeous – on the whole I don’t particularly covet expensive hotels – but that place is somewhere I’d love to stay.
Got to get to Con Dao.
It’s worth making the trip down there for sure. Nice respite.
Love the last shot!
I visited it on March. It way surpasses the one in Ninh Van Bay. But the fact that there are 20 thousand people died on that island (only about 2 thousand of them are properly buried) scared the heck outta me.
