VINPEARL LAND MERMAIDS

PREVIOUS / NEXT

UNDERWATER by KRISS on 09 february 2017

As we passed the entrance gate at the Vinpearl park, I suddenly feel the urge to ask to speak to a manager.
It’s been on my mind since I’ve known we would choose to go to Phu Quoc : they have a mermaid show and I cannot decently let this opportunity slip.

So I’ve asked around on the island and everyone I’ve spoken to told me to forget about shooting the mermaids in the aquarium, nobody would ever let me do that.
Challenge accepted !

Back to my gate, I ask the girls to go ahead a wait for me and ask one of the door keeper if I can speak to a manager.
They don’t even ask me why and immediately call management located just across the entrance in a small building.
Someone comes to me and I explain I want to talk to a manager regarding the mermaid show.
The person I am talking to speaks little english and takes me to higher management inside the little building.

There, a kind woman, named Dung receives me with a broad smile.
I ask her if I can use her computer to show her my works and it must have been my photo of my friend Macarena that did the trick for her ! She told me to give her a few hours to check with direction, took the address of our room, room number name and that was it.
I left the building with a confident smile hoping that she would contact me at some point during the stay.

We went to have fun in the park and we visited the aquarium as normal tourists.
After viewing them I couldn’t get it out of my head, I had to get in that fish tank with the mermaids, the sharks, the turtles, the moray eels the puffer fish and the manta rays !

The universe heard me because as soon as we took a lunch break and sat at a terrace in the middle of the park, did we bump into Dung again who jolted me a natural “it’s okay - you can come and take photographs of the mermaids in the aquarium”.

I felt like I had won a million bucks, I believe my face would have been source of a great photograph at that moment.
She asked me when I wanted to do this and we arranged for the next morning.

After lunch we went back to the aquarium for the afternoon show and I shot a few outside of the water photographs.
I must admit the idea of shooting in that gigantic aquarium stayed with me all evening and all night and I woke up pretty excited… What happens next, in a next post !
