As one of the most culturally fascinating and magnificently photogenic nations on earth, Vietnam exemplifies its greatness through the colourful extremes of its people and landscape. It is a country defined by the diversity of its land and the generosity of its people. Here, photographer David Lazar shows us the vibrant street culture of Hanoi, the savoury flavours of traditional Vietnamese cuisine and the stunning beauty of Halong Bay.
