(TITC) – Travel+Leisure Magazine has suggested filming locations of movie “Kong: Skull Island” in Viet Nam for travellers through the experiences of Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

Expressing his good impression of Viet Nam, Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts said “I truly fell in love with the people, the culture, the food, and the landscapes”. “It became my mission to put this country on screen and to let the world know how spectacular it is."

He also shared with Travel+Leisure that Viet Nam was originally planned as a throw-away location simply because no one had really shot there before. But when the team landed in Viet Nam, the landscapes and rawness of the country won Vogt-Roberts over. “It was something that I just felt didn’t exist in any other place that we traveled", he said.

On the day before the film's release on March 10, the Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts reminisced with Travel+Leisure on his time working on the film Kong: Skull Island in Viet Nam. The Director and his team had an inspiring moment in Viet Nam. They shared many beautiful pictures on the website of Travel+Leisure Magazine:

“This is from the very first day of shooting. We were in a small village and the entire community showed up to watch us. If you zoomed out, it would go on for pages and pages to the left and right. We would never have allowed that to happen if we were shooting in the Untied States, but in Vietnam we knew how unorthodox it was for them. I really can’t stress enough how much pride the Vietnamese people had for us being there and what that meant to us”, Jordan Vogt-Roberts said.

“Both of the locations in these shots are special to me. The photo on the right is actually the place that made me decide that we had to shoot in Viet Nam… The mountain range is so spectacular”, he expressed. (Photo: Jordan Vogt-Roberts).

There was a scene filmed with no sunlight and it was all fogged out so that the Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts must say: “one of the most beautiful places on the planet”. (Photo: Vince Valitutti / © 2015 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.).

“We filmed in this swamp for the final sequence of the film, and if the cast was going to be in the water, then I was going to be in the water. It was such an inspiring moment”, he reminisced. (Photo: Vince Valitutti / © 2015 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.)

“We filmed in this swamp for the final sequence of the film, and if the cast was going to be in the water, then I was going to be in the water. That’s just how I worked with the actors. The surrounding landscape was stunning, but the water was very cold. It was an easy moment for them all to say, ‘Jordan, we’re done.’ But, we all just looked around, and there was this joint effort to stick through it. Yes, we would be cold. Yes, we would have six days of this. Yes, this was going to be a pain. But, we all just looked around and realized where we were and how lucky we were to be there. It was such an inspiring moment”, he said. (Photo: Vince Valitutti / © 2015 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.)
