Vinh is the biggest city and economic and cultural center of the North Central Coast of Vietnam. Vinh is the capital of Nghệ An Province, and is a key point in the East–West economic corridor linking Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. Sprawling Nghe An province juts westward into northeastern Laos and cups around the Dong Sea to the east. To the north lies Thanh Hoa province with Pu Luong and Ben En nature reserves and to the south you'll find the equally interesting Ha Tinh province with Thien Cam Beach. Nghe An though is a little more interesting with Pu Mat national park and Dong Du village.

More about Vinh City:
Practically obliterated during the American War, Vinh was rebuilt with East German aid – hence the brutalist concrete architecture dominating downtown. The only reasons to stop here are if you're a Ho Chi Minh devotee (he was born in a nearby village), or if you're heading to Laos.
Vinh is a major transport hub with regular buses to HCMC, Hanoi, Danang and Dien Bien Phu, and trains to all stops north to Hanoi and south to HCMC. Open-tour buses pass through town between Hanoi and Hue, and while it’s easy to ask to jump off here, it’s difficult to arrange a pick-up. Most convenient for Laos-bound travellers is the Thanh An Hotel, with a handy location 300m south of the main bus terminal, and comfortable rooms with attractive wooden furniture and good beds.
