View from the Muong Thanh Luxury Hotel

Here’s the view of My Khe Beach when I look over the ledge from the 40th floor of the Muong Thanh Luxury Hotel. Unlike most other rooftops I’ve been on in recent years here in Asia, not only did I have the entire place to myself, but it was uneasily easy to stand slightly above the pane of thick glass to shoot footage or stills at a 90 gree downwards-facing angle.

I mean, if I was a little shaky while holding my Fujifilm XT-3 above the sidewalk at about 175 m (574 ft), I can just imagine somebody shorter than I accidentally dropping their smartphone at a similar angle.
