The main geographic feature in the north of Vietnam is the fertile delta of the Red River, the region where the cities of Hanoi and Hai Phong are situated. The coastal area to the east from Hanoi is famous for Halong Bay; the bay features thousands of limestone islands and islets in various shapes and sizes.
Junks bring masses of tourists to the "New 7 Wonders of Nature". However, Ha Long Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and well worth a visit.

To the north of the Red River Delta is the mountainous Northwest region of Vietnam bordering China. Lào Cai and Sa Pa are two important towns and popular tourist destinations in the Hoàng Liên Son Mountains. The mountains are the location of Fansipan (Phan Xi Păng), the highest peak in the Indochinese Peninsula at 3,143 m (10,312 ft).

In Central Vietnam, between the cities of Vinh and Da Nang, you will find a narrow stretch of coastal plains with the Annamite Range (Dãy Trường Sơn) on one side and the South China Sea on the other. The plains are the location of Hue, the former seat of Vietnam's royal Nguyen Dynasty and for some times (1802-1945) the capital of Vietnam.

To the southwest of Da Nang are Vietnam's Central Highlands (Tây Nguyên), a series of contiguous plateaus covering central-western Vietnam, a southern portion of Laos and a corner in northeastern Cambodia.

The southern part of Vietnam is dominated by the Mekong Delta, the "Nine Dragon river delta," where the Mekong River spreads out into an extensive delta before it empties into the South China Sea. The delta is the site of the country's largest city Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon.
