Vinh is a city located in the northern part of Vietnam. It is considered as the most important city in Northern Central Vietnam as it is a primary key in transporting between the northern and southern Vietnam. The city also keeps a port where various products from the sea and the neighboring country are received and distributed to other parts of Vietnam. Although Vinh City is a busy commercial center, it is also home to great tourist destinations which are as follows:

• Quyet Mountain
It houses the beautiful Lam Garden where native floras and faunas can be found. Other than the garden, the mountain is also surrounded with a rich forest of pine trees and other faunas that can be found on the way to the top. Upon reaching the top of the mountain, you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Nghe Region as well as the hills and rivers down the slope.
