Vietnam's diverse natural environment, geography, history, and culture have created a great potential for the tourism industry. Vietnam’s environment includes long coastlines, forests, and mountainous areas with beautiful caves. Vietnam also has a history and culture of ancient architectures, religions and cults, and traditional festivals.

Vietnam has a long coastline that extends along the eastern boundary of the country and wraps around the southern tip for total of 3,260 km, a distance geographically longer than the length of the country. Traveling from north to south or from south to north, tourists will find many beautiful beaches where, all year round, they can stay and enjoy the excitement of the seaside. There are more than 20 beautiful beaches along the coastline, such as Tra Co, Ha Long, Do Son, and Sam Son in the north and Non Nuoc Beach (Da Nang), Nha Trang, Vung Tau, and Ha Tien in the south. In particular, tourists can visit Ha Long Bay, which is a world natural heritage site, a creation of Mother Nature, with thousands of islands and rocks of different sizes and shapes, such as a dragon, a frog, a turtle, and a fighting chicken. Inside the big islands, there are huge and wonderful caves and grottoes.

Vietnam is a tropical country in the northern hemisphere. With its geographical diversity, the country has inherited many famous natural resorts such as SaPa, Tam Dao, Bach Ma, and Da Lat. These resorts are located 1,000 meters above sea level; therefore, they have climates that are similar to those of the temperate zones. Da Lat City is not only an ideal tourist resort, but also it is also a city of pine forests, waterfalls and many kinds of beautiful flowers. Coming to Da Lat, tourists are entertained by the strong and tender melodies of the Trung and Gong, two typical musical instruments of the highlanders commonly played at evening parties.

Vietnam has many famous national parks, which are great collections of precious flora and fauna of the tropical zone. The most famous national forests include Cuc Phuong in Ninh Binh province, Cat Ba on Cat Ba Island, Con Dao on Con Dao Island, etc. There are several regions in Vietnam that have been reserved as gardens and bird sanctuaries. At Minh Hai Sanctuary, there are more than 80 species of birds. At Tam Nong Sanctuary, there is a garden conservatory for redhead cranes, established as an information center for cranes funded by the International Fund for Bird Protection in Bergheim, Germany.

Vietnam has abundant mineral water sources, found throughout the country, such as Quang Hanh hot stream in Quang Ninh province, Hoi Van mineral spring in Binh Dinh province, Vinh Hao mineral spring in Binh Thuan province, Duc My stream in Nha Trang, and Kim Boi mineral spring in Hoa Binh province. These areas have become resorts for health rehabilitation and relaxation attracting numerous visitors every year.

Vietnam has a long 4,000-year history during which many valuable architectural heritages of rich oriental culture have been built. Many of these vestiges maintain their ancient appearances, such as the One Pillar Pagoda and Kim Kien Pagoda in Hanoi, Pho Minh Tower in Nam Ha province, Binh Son Tower in Vinh Phuc province, Tay Dang Temple, Chu Quyen Temple and Tay Phuong Pagoda in Ha Tay province, Keo Pagoda in Thai Binh province, and But Thap Pagoda and Dinh Bang Temple in Bac Ninh province. In the villages of the Central Coast of Vietnam, Cham Towers are the remarkable vestiges of this lost civilization. In particular, the royal architectures of Hue Ancient Citadel were recognized as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO.
