Two photos showcasing central Vietnam make Agora top 50

Capturing Nam Cuong sand dune and Nhu Y River in central Vietnam, both images were named among Agora’s Beauty 2020 top 50.

One photo was taken by Hanoi-based photographer Bui Quoc Ky, capturing the beauty of dawn at Nam Cuong sand dune in Phan Rang-Thap Cham, capital of Ninh Thuan Province in south-central Vietnam.

Given its proximity to famous tourist destinations like Nha Trang and Da Lat, Ninh Thuan is home to pristine beaches, coral reef caves and vestiges of the Champa Kingdom, underlining the province’s historical importance.

The remaining shot by Hanoi-based photographer Giang Khong depicts girls in ao dai (traditional Vietnamese dress) releasing floating candles on Nhu Y River in the popular tourist town of Hue.

"During the national holidays in Vietnam, it's a tradition for locals to release candles on the river to pray for health and peace," Khong said.
