Haiphong is known as the third-largest city of Vietnam. Together with Hanoi and Saigon, Haiphong is a familiar destination of foreigners. Today, let’s travel back in time to see Haiphong in 1913.
Well-known with the name “City of flamboyant flower”, Haiphong is described clearly through the lens of foreign photographers.
Recently, Belle Indochina has released a series of pictures of Haiphong in the last century. These are really precious documents for Haiphong people who are always proud of their city.
