Hai Phong hosts several large industrial and commercial zones and service centers, tourism spots, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, and seafood processing plants in the Northern Coastal region of Vietnam. It significantly contributes to the tripartite growth of the Northern economic focal point, including Hanoi, Hai Phong, and Quang Ninh, outside Hanoi’s metropolitan planning. Moreover, Hai Phong serves as a vital node in the northern region, hosting the headquarters of the 3rd Military Region Command, the 1st Naval Region Command, and the Vietnamese Navy’s Armed Forces Service.
Hai Phong is often referred to as the “Port City.” The widespread cultivation of vibrant red flamboyant trees in the city has earned Hai Phong the nickname “City of Red Flamboyant Flowers.” Beyond its industrial identity, Hai Phong boasts substantial tourism potential. The city preserves architectural charm, blending traditional structures like temples and shrines with classical French architecture found in the old quarters. Moreover, Hai Phong is home to the Cat Ba Archipelago, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, along with beaches and resorts in Do Son. The city also showcases unique cultural features, especially in its cuisine and traditional festivals.

Hai Phong is a pivotal economic center in Northern Vietnam and the nation as a whole. During the French colonial period, it held the status of a first-tier city, equal in importance to Saigon and Hanoi. Towards the end of the 19th century, the French proposed transforming Hai Phong into the “economic capital” of Indochina.
Today, Hai Phong stands as one of Vietnam’s most significant economic hubs. Since 2005, it has consistently ranked among the top five provinces and cities contributing the most to the national budget, always holding the third position after Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. In 2015, the city’s total budget revenue reached 56,288 billion VND. In 2016, it rose to 62,640 billion VND, and in 2018, it reached 70,730.5 billion VND.

In 2018, Hai Phong’s domestic revenue reached 24,768 billion VND.
Amid the country’s deep and wide integration with historic trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community, Hai Phong’s position as a significant investment destination for foreign investors in Vietnam has solidified. Several large FDI projects are concentrated in high-tech and low-pollution sectors, such as LG Electronics (1.5 billion USD), Bridgestone (1.2 billion USD), LG Display (1.5 billion USD), alongside other big names like Regina Miracle, Fuji Xerox, Kyocera, Nipro Pharma, and GE, demonstrating the city’s substantial appeal.
Notably, Hai Phong is the automotive capital of Vietnam. Vingroup’s VinFast Automotive Plant, covering 335 hectares with a total investment of 3.5 billion USD, aims to become a leading Made In Vietnam automobile brand. VinFast has invested and collaborated with major European automobile and component manufacturers, such as BMW, Siemens AG, Robert Bosch GmbH from Germany, Austria’s Magna Steyr, and Italy’s Pininfarina, making it one of Vietnam’s largest industrial projects, equipped with top-notch machinery, modern robots, and technology systems.
In addition to the effect from infrastructure development projects, such as the Hanoi-Hai Phong Expressway (reducing travel time to the capital to 1 hour and 30 minutes) and the Lach Huyen International Transshipment Port in Cat Hai, new industrial zones continue to be invested and expanded, including VSIP, Trang Due, Deep C II (Dinh Vu), Deep C III (Cat Hai), Nam Dinh Vu, contributing significantly to Hai Phong’s plan to become a “Green Port City.”

With its strategic location as a vital transportation hub and the main gateway to the sea in Northern Vietnam, Hai Phong boasts a comprehensive transportation network, including roadways, railways, inland waterways, air travel, and seaports.
Hai Phong, strategically positioned as a gateway to the sea connecting the entire Northern region with the world, has historically been a major focus for port infrastructure development. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the French developed Hai Phong as a prominent commercial and financial center, especially renowned for its seaport in the Pacific region. By the early 20th century, Hai Phong’s port had established connections with many large ports in Southeast Asia, Asia, the Pacific, North America, the Indian Ocean, the Mediterranean, and the North Atlantic, making it a critical international trade hub.
Hai Phong’s port complex is a national-level integrated seaport cluster, second only to Ho Chi Minh City, and is currently undergoing government-driven upgrades. Situated along key maritime routes, linking Singapore to Hong Kong and other ports in East and Northeast Asia, Hai Phong Port is strategically positioned.
In addition to the main seaport, Hai Phong has over 35 other ports serving various functions, such as transporting liquid cargo (petrol, oil, and gas), shipbuilding docks, and ports for small river transport vessels with a load capacity of 1-2 tons (“mouse boats”) like the Vat Cach River Port and the So Dau River Port.
To accommodate the growing demands and enhance capacity, Hai Phong initiated the Lach Huyen International Transshipment Port project on Cat Hai Island, with a total investment of 1 billion USD. This future-ready port is designed to handle container ships and general cargo vessels weighing over 100,000 DWT and has been classified as an international gateway port (Type IA). Once operational, the Lach Huyen Container Superport will lead to the relocation of all inner-city river ports to Lach Huyen, transforming the urban landscape of the city.
Hai Phong is connected to Hanoi via the Hanoi-Hai Phong railway, constructed by the French between 1901 and June 16, 1902. This railway, spanning 102 km and nearly parallel to National Highway 5A, passes through Hai Phong, Hai Duong, Hung Yen, and Hanoi. Hai Phong Railway Station is the final passenger station on the Hanoi-Hai Phong railway. Along with Hue and Nha Trang railway stations, Hai Phong Railway Station retains its original French colonial architectural charm.
Hai Phong currently has one civilian airport, Cat Bi International Airport, the first airport constructed in the Northern region during the French colonial era. Initially developed for military purposes, the airport is now served by Vietnam Airlines and Jetstar Pacific Airlines, operating 42 flights per week between Hai Phong and Ho Chi Minh City. Vietnam Airlines recently inaugurated flights between Hai Phong and Da Nang, operating seven flights per week. The city is undertaking upgrades to Cat Bi Airport, aligning it with civilian airport standards (4E level) by 2015, allowing for aircraft such as B747 with limited loading capacity, B777-300, B777-200, and A321. The project includes the construction of a new runway, measuring 3,050m in length and 60m in width. The airport’s apron area will be expanded to accommodate eight aircraft. The renovation of the old runway into a taxiway, measuring 3,050m in length and 44m in width, is also part of the plan. The total investment for Phase 1 is 5 trillion VND. VietJet Air, Vietnam’s most valuable airline, has chosen Cat Bi International Airport as its hub. The airline has proposed the construction of a second terminal, planned for socialization, with groundbreaking scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2017.
The city also has plans to construct an international airport, Hai Phong International Airport, in Tien Lang district. This project is expected to become the largest airport in the Northern region, covering approximately 6,000 hectares, with a total estimated investment of over 8 billion USD, to be implemented in three phases until 2030.
Hai Phong is interconnected with other provinces and cities through major highways, including National Highway 5, National Highway 10, National Highway 37, and expressways like the Hanoi-Hai Phong Expressway, and the Quang Ninh-Hai Phong-Ninh Binh coastal expressway.
Being the drainage area for the entire lower reaches of the Thai Binh River, Hai Phong has a dense network of rivers. Consequently, constructing bridges is vital for the city.
Binh Bridge over the Cam River, connecting Hong Bang District and Thuy Nguyen District, considered one of the most beautiful bridges in Southeast Asia.
Lac Long Bridge over the Tam Bac River, located in Hong Bang District, noted for its scenic route.
Quay Bridge, also known as the railway bridge, spanning the Tam Bac River, a historic bridge constructed during the French colonial era.
Dinh Vu – Cat Hai Sea-Crossing Bridge, the longest sea-crossing bridge in Vietnam.
Bach Dang Bridge, part of the Hai Phong – Ha Long Expressway.
During the period from 2013 to 2018, Hai Phong set a record for constructing the highest number of bridges in Vietnam’s history, with 20 bridges, big and small, built and put into use. Among them, the Tan Vu – Lach Huyen Bridge stands out as the longest bridge in Vietnam. In 2016 and 2017, Hai Phong surprised everyone by completing some bridges, like the Nguyen Binh Khiem Overpass and the Dinh Vu – Thai Binh River Double Bridge, within just six months. Two bridges spanning the Thai Binh River, connecting Vinh Bao District and Tien Lang District, were finished in eight months. It is estimated that by 2030, Hai Phong will have 30 additional bridges, earning it the title of the “City of Bridges” in the Northern Coastal region. If Da Nang is the “City of Bridges” in Central Vietnam, known for its iconic bridges, Hai Phong will be known for its infrastructural significance, forming the most advanced logistics network in Northern Vietnam.
As a large city near the coast, Hai Phong plays a crucial role in the economic and tourism triangle of Hai Phong – Hanoi – Quang Ninh. Hai Phong boasts numerous attractions and high-quality tourist destinations of international standards, including 4-star resorts, casinos, the Do Son Golf Course, eco-resorts, and the largest man-made wave pool in Asia at Hon Dau. There are also resorts like Song Gia and Camela within the city, hot spring resorts in Tien Lang, and Cat Ba Island and Cat Ba Resort and Spa in the Cat Ba Archipelago. Foreign tourists, especially those from Europe, are particularly interested in Cat Ba Archipelago, a beautiful island with rich ecosystems, lush forests, and abundant marine life, complemented by high-quality hotels and restaurants.
In 2010, Hai Phong welcomed 4.2 million visitors, including 596,400 international tourists. In the first 7 months of 2011, the city received 2.516 million visitors, with 339,300 being international tourists. The total revenue from hotel, restaurant, and service activities exceeded 5.6 trillion VND, a 29.2% increase compared to the same period, with accommodation and travel services generating 908.4 billion VND, a 15% increase and 60.6% of the plan.
Today, due to the proper attention from the city and investors, Hai Phong’s tourism is thriving. The city’s tour products are becoming more diverse and appealing, featuring historical sites, traditional cultural festivals, and cultural heritage resources. Recent developments include the opening of a saltwater wave pool, the largest in Asia, at Hon Dau Resort in Do Son and the construction of a 5-star sail-shaped Pullman hotel on the artificial island of Hoa Phuong, representing Hai Phong’s future. Cat Ba is expanding its offerings with boat tours in the bay using ferries, speedboats, and kayaks. Moreover, there are ongoing efforts to develop diving programs at locations with coral reefs.
Despite achieving significant results and being considered an attractive destination, according to travel experts, Hai Phong’s tourism has not fully capitalized on its potential and existing advantages. The city has yet to fully exploit its geographical, natural, and human resources. Hai Phong’s tourism continues to undergo significant transformations to live up to its status as a major tourism center in the Northern region. Hai Phong was chosen as the center of the National Tourism Year 2013 in the Red River Delta. The opening ceremony was scheduled for May 12, 2013, at the Hai Phong Opera House Square.

Hon Dau: Hon Dau is a small island located 1 km southeast of Do Son. Its allure lies in its untouched and tranquil environment, a stark contrast to the bustling Do Son with its ancient giant banyan trees.

The untouched and tranquil atmosphere is accentuated by the Nam Hai Vuong Temple and the century-old lighthouse. For the locals, Hon Dau is a sacred place; they believe nothing can be taken from the island, not even a rock or a leaf. Thus, for hundreds of years, Hon Dau has maintained its pristine grandeur.
