7 Things to Do in Vinh That You Shouldn't Miss

August 19, 2017 Nicolette Lion

Vinh (Vietnamese: [viɲ] ( listen)) is the biggest city and economic and cultural center of central Vietnam. Vinh is the capital of Nghệ An Province, and is a key point in the East–West economic corridor linking Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. The city is situated in the south-east of the province, alongside the Lam River (Song Lam) and is located on the main north-south transportation route of Vietnam, easily accessible by highway, railroad, boat and air. The recently expanded Vinh International Airport is served daily by three carriers: Vietnam Airlines, VietJet Air, and Jetstar Pacific. On September 5, 2008, it was upgraded from Grade-II city to Grade-I city, the fifth Grade-I city of Vietnam after Hai Phong, Đà Nẵng and Huế. Vinh is the most populous city in the North Central Coastal region, with over 490,000 residents (2015 estimate). The city is bordered by Nghi Loc district to the north and east, Hung Nguyen district to the west, and Nghi Xuan district in Hà Tĩnh Province to the south. Vinh is about 300 kilometres (190 mi) south of Hanoi and 1,400 kilometres (870 mi) north of Ho Chi Minh City. The total area of Vinh city is 104.97 square kilometres (40.53 sq mi), and includes 16 urban wards and 9 suburban communes.

From first contact with Vinh Guru, everything was perfectly handled. We had tried booking by Internet from Ninh Binh, but had a problem so we sent them an email and they replied they would meet us at our hotel when we arrived in Vinh. True to their word, Vo met us and we finalised arrangements for the next day. We could specify the start time too so at 7 am we headed out with our guide and Co-founder of Vinh Guru, Tien, and driver, Mr. Han. I could write a book about the wonderful sights, people met and local food consumed but the detail may spoil the delight you will have experiencing it. We finished the tour 14 hours later back at our hotel having experienced an unforgettable Big Day Out. Thanks to Mr Han for driving so safely and slowing down for the pot holes on the local roads. Big thank you to Tien for informative commentary and interesting program. I highly recommend Vinh Guru.
