Réhahn is more than just a man behind a camera.He visited over 35 countries before making Hoi An, Vietnam his home in 2011. His unique combination of fine art photography and documentary styles results in images that both inform and mesmerize. His portraits take the viewer along on the voyage to catch a glimpse of authentic interactions with people, their smiles, their wisdom, their daily lives. For Réhahn, photography is a way to approach people, to document what is happening in the present while also learning about the traditions and heritage of their past

Hungry after walking, our guide will take you to a famous shop of Banh My Phuong. David Farley, a BBC reporter who used to write about Vietnamese banh my in his article in 2014 said that Vietnamese banh my was the best sandwhich he’d ever had.

A typical Vietnamese sandwich is a fusion of meats and vegetables from native Vietnamese cuisine such as chả lụa (pork sausage), coriander leaf, cucumber, and pickled carrots and daikon combined with condiments from French cuisine such as pâté, along with jalapeño and mayonnaise.

In Vietnam, people try to make food following oriental philosophy: food needs to have 5 tastes “sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy”. Banh my is just fabulous for this, when eating this, you will find 5 tastes mingled together perfectly.

Then, let’s have some break at a secret tea house, tasting its delicious coffee, tea or fruit juices and biscuits are served in the charming atmosphere of an ancient, tastefully decorated house in the heart of the town.
