THAI BINH – Quang Lang’s calm sea creates a giant mirror effect that reflects the dawn, creating a breathtaking scene.
Ray dawn on the beach “infinity beach” Quang Lang (Thai Thuy district, Thai Binh). The photo is part of a series of photos taken by Mr. Nguyen Minh Tien (38 years old, Hanoi), a travel and photography enthusiast, taken just before the September 2 holiday.
“Through many information channels, I know this ‘infinity sea’ is famous, so I came here to experience and record pictures and videos,” Tien said. The beach is located right next to the mouth of Diem Ho River, a small tributary of the Red River, about 130 km from Hanoi and about 2 km from Diem Dien town.
Mr. Tien started traveling from Hanoi at about 20:00, arrived at Diem Dien town at 22:30 and looked for a motel. At 3:30 a.m., he got up to go to Quang Lang estuary, wade through the water to light up the lights in the night, and went to the beach to welcome the dawn.
“On a calm day, a coastal area of Quang Lang looks like a mirror to infinity, perhaps that’s why it’s called the infinity sea, the seawater only reaches the ankles,” explained Mr. Tien.
Visitors need to monitor the weather and ask the locality to update the situation before going to get a beautiful moment at the sea at dawn. According to the forecast, from September 1 to 6, all mornings the water is high, so people should not come here. The right time to take pictures this month is from September 7 to 12 and September 23 to 26.
In addition, it is also necessary to monitor the tides and wind. The tide is shallow, only penetrating the ankles and when the weather is calm, the wind is calm are ideal conditions for photography, the sea surface is covered with a layer of mirror, reflecting the sky and the earth.
The golden hour to welcome the most beautiful sunrise on the “infinity beach” is around 5am to 5:30am. “When I arrived, I was impressed by the beauty of the Creator, the clouds, the sky and the sea seemed to blend and I saw how small people are in the midst of nature. Because I actively hunt for photos, I chose to go before September 2 to avoid crowds,” he added.
Visitors not only can admire the impressive and poetic scenery, experience the idyllic life of the local people, dotted with the watchtowers of clams floating on the sea.
The watchtower stands out in the middle of an immense sky, above which is a magical orange-yellow sky.
Quang Lang beach is more and more known. On the way to the most beautiful place to see the sea, passing through the protected forest, the first part of the forest is slippery, muddy and quite difficult to walk.
Coming to this sea, visitors can easily encounter women who are present at sea from dawn to catch snails nails, scratch clams or beat tet.
Coming to Diem Dien town, there are many clean motels with prices ranging from 250,000 to 300,000 VND for a 2-bed room. In addition to the beautiful scenery, visitors can enjoy the typical dishes of this region, which are fish sauce and Thai Binh fish soup.
