From vibrant cities like Hanoi to natural landscapes like Ha Long Bay and relatively low filming costs – Vietnam is a choice destination for your production.

Filming in Vietnam

Vietnam, the land of natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, is increasingly becoming a popular destination for filmmakers seeking a unique and exotic backdrop for their productions. With its stunning landscapes, ancient temples, and bustling cities, Vietnam offers a wealth of visual and sensory experiences that are perfect for capturing on film.

One of the main draws of filming in Vietnam is its natural beauty. From the towering limestone cliffs of Ha Long Bay to the pristine beaches of Phu Quoc Island, the country offers a wide range of breathtaking locations. The Mekong Delta, with its winding rivers and lush greenery, provides an ideal setting for nature-themed productions.

Vietnam’s rich cultural heritage also presents opportunities for filmmakers. Ancient temples, pagodas, and historic landmarks like the Imperial City of Hue provide unique backdrops for historical and cultural productions. The vibrant street life of cities like Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi offers a glimpse into the country’s bustling urban culture.

The cost of filming in Vietnam is relatively low compared to other popular filming destinations in the region, such as Thailand or Singapore. Despite the nascent state of its film industry, highly experienced crews are available and equipment can be sourced from neighbouring Thailand at affordable rates.

In recent years, Vietnam has become an increasingly popular filming destination for tent-pole productions including several high-profile US productions. One notable example is the 2017 blockbuster “Kong: Skull Island,” which was partially filmed in Vietnam’s northern province of Ninh Binh. The stunning natural scenery of Ninh Binh, including its towering limestone cliffs and winding rivers, provided the perfect backdrop for the film’s epic jungle scenes.

As Vietnam continues to develop its infrastructure and support for the film industry, it is poised to become a top choice for filmmakers looking for a unique and exciting location.


Vietnam’s tropical climate, with temperatures ranging from 22°C to 35°C, presents some challenges for filming. The best time to shoot in Vietnam is during the dry season, which runs from November to April. However, even during the dry season, there may be occasional showers, so it is important to plan ahead and have contingency plans in place.
