4. Notes when taking pictures on the train

What to wear to take better photos: Minimalist, bright tones like white, beige, and light blue will look the best. In addition, people can prepare additional accessories: flowers, newspapers, and sedge hats are also very beautiful.
Shooting angles: The hallway area is extremely beautiful next to the door frame in the room because the sunlight shines in, and the deep angle attracts the eye. The window frame next to the toilet (but the smell is a bit horrible, not recommended).

If you visit Hue this summer, remember to experience taking the train to Da Nang or vice versa, it will be an extremely memorable memory.
