Vietnam is one of the three sites selected for filming, the others are Hawaii and Australia, due to its unspoilt and spectacular natural scenes.

Scenes in the movie were shot in Trang An, Van Long and Tam Coc in Ninh Binh Province; the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Rao Nan River and Yen Phu Lake in Quang Binh Province; and Ha Long Bay in Quang Ninh Province.

Vogt-Roberts hopes that the movie’s success will encourage more people to visit Vietnam and enjoy their experience in this beautiful country.
