Finding harmony in Huế

0

On the outskirts of the central Vietnamese city of Huế, travellers will find dusty unsealed roads carving their way through lush fields.
An expansive concrete bridge stretches from one side of a placid lagoon to the other.
Wooden fishing boats bob gently with the tide.
A half-hour’s drive from Huế’s hectic centre is a village of two-room shacks, sitting either side of the dirt road.
Mai Gia Phuong lies next to the Tam Giang Lagoon.
It’s on the edge of a bustling city and on the periphery of Vietnam’s booming trade sector.
The residents of Mai Gia Phuong have carved out a small piece of solitude within the mania.
