Can Tho, a city directly under the Central authorities, lies in the heart of the Mekong River Delta. More than 100 years ago, the city was dubbed “the capital city of the Southwestern Vietnam” and has now become the level-1 city. Can Tho is one of the four provinces and cities of the Mekong River Delta Key Economic Zone – the fourth key economic zone of Vietnam. Can Tho’s economic focus has traditionally been in agriculture and aquatic products, but the city’s geographical position is helping it to develop in other areas such as aquatic and hi-tech agriculture, seafood processing, travel & tourism and urban / traffic infrastructures.
Danang is the third largest city in Vietnam in terms of urban population and one of the major port cities, in addition to Ho Chi Minh City and Hai Phong. Situated on the coast of the Eastern Sea, at the opening end of the Han River, it is the biggest city in Central Vietnam.

Hai Phong is a major port city in northeastern Vietnam, across from Cat Ba Island. The city's name means "coastal defense" and it is nicknamed the Flamboyant City because of the many flame trees planted throughout it.
Hai Phong is Northern Vietnam's most important seaport and has many industrial parks invested by multinational corporations. Its leafy boulevards are lined with French colonial–era landmarks like the neoclassical Opera House and Queen of the Rosary cathedral, dating to the 19th century
Rediscovering the Magic of Hanoi
The City of Hanoi stands tall as the political and economic hub of Reunified Vietnam in 1976. Hanoi outpaced Hue, once the Imperial capital during the Nguyen Dynasty from 1802 to 1945. It was also chosen as the capital during occupation of the French from 1002 to 1954. Its rise from “obscurity” was rewarded with recognition from the global community when it became the capital of reunified Vietnam in 1976, after the long 1955-1975 Vietnam war. Hanoi’s unstoppable economic growth careens toward a brighter economic future. At this point, business opportunities beckon.
Ho Chi Minh: The Perfect Fusion of Old and New
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam’s main economic center, is not only known as a business hub but also as a main tourist destination. The place attracts thousands of businessmen and backpackers alike who are all drawn to the beautiful blend of old and new captured perfectly by this bustling metropolis.
The fusion of the new—steel and glass skyscrapers and shopping malls—with the old—ramshackle shops, food markets, and pagodas—all play a role in pulling investors and travelers the world over to this destination.
