Photographer Nguyen Phuc Thanh's work

Photographer Nguyen Phuc Thanh took photo of Long Coc tea hills in Phu Tho province, Vietnam. He says that Long Coc is the most beautiful tea mountain in Vietnam with hills “shaped like upside down bowls”.

The photographer added that at the beginning of winter, there is more fog with the lower temperatures, which makes the scenery “even more amazing during sunrise”.
