A corner of Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO heritage site and a popular tourist hotspot in the northern Quang Ninh Province, is humorously likened by the young photographer as "chicken thighs" from above.

Since its recognition as a UNESCO natural world heritage in 1994, Ha Long Bay has found a spot on the global tourism map, with travel bloggers and filmmakers hailing its emerald waters and thousands of towering limestone pillars topped by rainforests.

The tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh, located on the slopes of Chau Chu Mountain about 10 kilometers from downtown Hue, is shrouded in mist.

The site is much smaller than those of other Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945) rulers. At the entrance, there are 37 steps leading to the main gate with dragons carved along the walls. Khai Dinh reigned from 1916 to 1925.

Truong Tien Bridge, a symbol of Hue, resembles a white streak in the sky caused by a plane passing by.

Built in 1899 during the reign of King Thanh Thai, the 10th Nguyen Dynasty emperor, the 400-meter bridge across Huong (Perfume) River was designed by Gustave Eiffel, the architect who designed the Eiffel Tower in Paris and Statue of Liberty in New York.

It has undergone several repairs following natural disasters and wartime bombings.
