In Sapa, the crew has experienced interesting shooting days in rice terraces. Although on the day we came, all rice was cut already we still smelled ripen rice. We also learnt how to tame and train water buffaloes. Do you recognize that we had to find local girls to play the scene of sitting on the back of a water buffalo on the rice terraces?

The music video was officially out in October 2017 and was highly appreciated. Although it has not helped attract a lot more foreign tourists coming to Vietnam to discover the locations seen in the video, it has helped bring some of Vietnam beautiful images and touristy attractions to the world. Many Vietnamese viewers felt proud of the beauty of their own country. Vietnam fixer team also felt happy to organize another smooth filming in Vietnam.
