My voyage began in Saigon, where hidden shrines nestled amidst the bustling streets unveiled the authentic soul of the city. From savouring local coffee to engaging in conversations with the warm-hearted locals, I was welcomed into their world and learned incredible life stories, each more inspiring than the last. Notably, I met a man who had lived a full life, marked by multiple marriages and even a stint with the U.S. military at just 14 years old.

Wearing a bespoke purple floral kimono suit in Hoi An, I felt like a part of Vietnam’s vibrant artistic fabric. The experience was a testament to the seamless blending of tradition and progress, reflecting the harmonious coexistence of Vietnam’s rich history and its modernity. 

The serenity of Guanyin Temple in Danang, with its statue of Avalokitesvara symbolizing compassion and tranquility, became a wellspring of inspiration for my creative thoughts. It reinforced my belief that art and culture have the power to transcend borders and connect people on a deeper level.

Exploring Da Nang’s modernity against the backdrop of the mesmerising Dragon Bridge was a visual representation of the country’s dynamic blend of tradition and progress. It was a reminder that growth and change can harmoniously coexist.

My visit to the Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture was a journey through time, uncovering the rich history of the Cham civilization, celebrated for its artistic legacy. The intricate sculptures and artefacts I encountered were a testament to their creativity and dedication.

Within the walls of Hue Imperial City, the echoes of a bygone era whispered stories of imperial elegance and the enduring influence of Vietnamese history and culture. It was a testament to the enduring legacy of the country’s history and culture.

At the opulent Khai Dinh Tomb, I donned another tailored kimono suit, embracing imperial elegance and celebrating Vietnam’s rich history and culture. This experience was a tribute to the timeless elegance and artistic opulence of the nation.

As I return to work, I carry with me the profound inspiration I found in Vietnam. It’s a reminder that creativity has no bounds and that every journey, whether personal or professional, is a source of growth. I hope you’ve enjoyed this journey through the heart of Vietnam, and I encourage you to explore the world and seek inspiration wherever your path may lead.
