Crossing Bridges is an annual trip by forum members from the various photography forums around ASEAN. This trip has been an ongoing event since 2004 bringing photographers to Indonesia (twice), Cambodia, Hong Kong, Macau, Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam.

The purpose of Crossing Bridges is bridge-building and friendships between the various online Photography forums from around the region representing approximately 750,000+ registered photographers

Currently, participating nations include Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

This year’s edition, the 8th, visits south-east coastal and hill areas of Vietnam less explored by tourists.

Photographers from all 5 participating countries will gather in Ho Chi Minh City on Thursday 10 November.

The next 5 days from 11 to 15 November photographers will be visiting and shooting in areas such as:
