Photographer's Note

.


I had eye-disease since 6 weeks. Staying too long in front of computer to search info for note would make the symptom worse. For that, please give me a day off without google. Writing a brief note about the place where you spent your youth is the most easy thing in life, isnt it?



When my parent decided to leave Hue City and picked Lăng C to switch our lifestyle to farming in 1957, my family has been the only household in the stretch of 3 km from Loan L Village to An Cư Đng Village. At the moment, only elementary schools available. By 11 or 12 years old, we began to experience the taste of being away from family to continue the education.

Visitors to my village believe that its name means Lăng C (A Miss Tomb) or Lng C (Village of storks). As a Lăng C kid, I have never seen a tomb of any Miss, nor stork, but I was one to believe that theory until attending the Fathers of Redemptorists Monastery where I has been taught the name derives from LAncu, as the French called its original name An Cư (Living Peacefully).

Near the main market you could see the ruined complex that the Nguyen Dynasty has built for their kings to enjoy the scenic landscape. Also some trace of the French could be found here and there.

Actually, Lăng C Peninsula is a famous area with imposing scenery, mountains and forests, clear blue sea and soft, white sand adjoin each other that many travelers to Vietnam in the past have missed the chance to view this hidden beauty. Now, it became a famous resort which is styled to reminiscent of an old Vietnamese village with native wood and rattan. Lăng C reflects the real image of Vietnam with its warm hospitality, rich culture and unique tastes. Overlooking to the ocean through its long private beach, Lăng C resort offers uncompromising vistas and relaxation.

In the past, all traffic getting through the center of Vietnam has to take the 500m-high Sea & Cloud Pass built by French Engineers after 2nd WW, and running across the 7km-stretch of sand of Lăng C. On 6-5-2005, the new 12km-tunnel has been opened for traffic. Instead of traveling up and down the 20km-pass, it now only takes less than 10 minutes to cut through the Sea-n-Cloud Mountain Range. In other words, Lăng C is just 30-driving minutes from Danang, one of the three International Airports of Vietnam, after Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat.

Had you ever been to Bahamas, please stop by and compare against the white sand and crystal salt water of my village Lăng C. Thanks.
