Nam Dinh

Nam Dinh Province is in the Red River Delta, 90km south-east of Hanoi, 100km from Hai Phong City and 18km from Thai Binh City.

Nam Dinh is famous among the Vietnamese pilgrims who make yearly visits to the sacred temples in the province at the beginning of each lunar year. Nam Dinh is not a destination for most foreign visitors to Vietnam by far. Though Nam Dinh was one of the industrial centers of Vietnam in the 19th and early 20th century, but currently the province is mostly agriculture-based with farming in the Red River and fishing at sea.
