Vietnam's Central Coast

Visit Vietnam's Central Coast


Vietnam's central coast has a lot to offer. With a long, complex and important history, the region has been at the centre of conflict and power for centuries, but it is also home to splendid ancient ruins, emperors' palaces - such as those at Hue - and distinctly French colonial mansions.

Perched between the former North and South Vietnam, the region is also home to the former DMZ, which spread along the 17th parallel and, as such, the region witnessed some of the worst fighting during the Vietnam War.

Now, fully restored and revitalised, it boasts some of Vietnam's best beaches, particularly around Hoi An and Da Nang, the old and new marine trading hubs of the region.

This meeting between past and present, within the contexts of Vietnam's fascinating cultural traditions and complex history, makes this a particularly enjoyable region to explore.
