Vietnam coastline.

3000 km of coastline

A coastline of more than 3000 km and an extensive network of rivers give Vietnam a considerable potential for developing maritime traffic.

Vietnam is located right next to the East Sea – a particularly important trade “bridge” on the world maritime map. Of the 39 currently operating maritime routes in the world, 29 routes pass through the East Sea. Among the 10 largest maritime routes in the world, the East Sea area has 1 route through and 5 related routes.

With a long coastline stretching from North to South, Vietnam has many seaports, in which, some places can build deep-water ports such as: Hai Phong, Vung Tau, Van Phong; Quy Nhon; Cai Lan; Saigon;….

In addition, thanks to the formation of a network of seaports, roads and railways along the coast and connecting to inland areas (especially Asian Highway routes), Vietnam have a capable of transporting imported goods to all parts of the world quickly and conveniently.

Export and import goods of Vietnam do not need to transit through neighboring countries. In contrast, goods from the Northeast of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Yunnan province (China) exported to other countries have the potential to be transited and temporarily stored in the territory of Vietnam.
