Vietnam, and most specifically Hanoi, is such a perfect place to start street photography. As a foreigner living in a new country, it is very intuitive to spot what looks interesting.
With a pair of fresh eyes, you can easily spot the particularities of a culture since you are foreign to it. Vietnam is somehow chaotic compared to European countries, which makes it very pleasing to hunt for order, composition, and decisive moments.
Hanoi looks very traditional and still has a bit of the busyness HCMC has. All these ingredients make for a great place to find interesting subjects and beautiful compositions.
