Thiên's photo entitled Aerial Fisherman is competing in the Travel category. He took the picture of a fishing net moving underneath the water's surface along the coast of the central province of Phú Yên. 

The Travel category also includes a photo of Hà Nội by United Kingdom's Jon Enoch.

Entitled A Fish Seller Displays His Goods features a man posing with his scooter in Hà Nội with a delivery of pet fish.
