Fast Facts

  • Vinh came to prominence as the ‘Phoenix Capital City’ of the Tay Son Rebellion

  • Vinh was long a hotbed for revolutionaries, communist cells, and trade unions – so much so it became known as the 'Red Glorious City'

  • During the American War, the port became a key supply point for the Ho Chi Minh Trail and, as a result, the first American bombing target

  • The city was relentlessly pounded for eight years – eventually leaving only two buildings intact
