Leg No. 4:  Hải Phòng-Nam Ðịnh (92 km)

On this leg, you will continue on Highway 10 that will take you from the Hai Phong city down south to Nam Dinh.  The road opens even wider on this leg as there are lanes dedicated primary for cars and lanes primarily for two-wheel vehicles and pedestrians.

The surroundings on this leg are reflective of rural North Vietnam.  There are many lush rice paddies along both sides of the highway.  These stretch for many miles and are reminiscent of those undulating wheat fields found in the Midwest United States.  You will also cross the famous Red River of Vietnam prior to entering Nam Dinh.

Nam Dinh hosts some famous sites and buildings.  The once famous and oldest textile factory resides in this city.  It was built by the French during the French occupation and is still in operation today.  A recently built sports stadium sits inside the outskirt of the city.  At the very center of the city lies a lake, similar to that of Hoan Kiem Lake in Hanoi.  People from all over the city go here to enjoy the quite and serenity of the lake.  Other notable sites in Nam Dinh include an ancient church situated across the lake built during the French occupation; the famous statue of Hung Dao Vuong Tran Quoc Tuan lies at the shore of the lake; and two markets (Rong and My Tho) can be found near the vicinity of the lake.
