Shortly before Christmas Mr. Bill Gadd, CEO of Vietnam B2B Direct and his personnel from their HCMC office visited their office in Nha Trang, a thriving tourist city of 500,000 people located in the Khanh Hoa Province of South Central Vietnam. As 2012 was winding down and the holiday season approaching Vietnam B2B Direct planned a gathering of all staff for an annual general meeting, enjoying a little R&R – recreation and relaxing: we work hard and play hard.

Part of the itinerary was a visit to Cam Ranh Bay area, directly south of Nha Trang. The coastal area of Cam Ranh Bay is quite breathtaking with a natural deep sea bay and port. There are daily flights from Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) Tan Son Nhat International Airport to Nha Trang International Airport (Cam Ranh) which also now handles all air traffic for the city region of Nha Trang.

Overview of the Development of Cam Ranh Bay Region in South Central Vietnam

Cam Ranh region is administered by the Khanh Hoa Province’s Department of Transport and Communications. The coastal region includes an international commercial deep sea port located inside Cam Ranh Bay.

The breathtaking natural environment and conditions of the coastal region allow for the business development of a wide range of seaport services:

Highlights of Cam Ranh Bay Region

  • Deep sea depth of anchorage
  • Nearby International Marine route (about 10 km) to the east Sea (South China Sea)
  • Newly expanded Cam Ranh International Airport
  • Close proximity to the National Highway No.1A (about 1.5 km)
  • Close proximity to the National Railway (about 3 km).

Therefore, the Cam Ranh Bay Region has been an important centre of marine traffic covering the economic zone of south Khanh Hoa and neighbouring provinces for decades.

The deep-water port has been evaluated as one the best ports in the world. Located only 300 kilometres to the north of Ho Chi Minh City, the port has access to important shipping lines, for both military and commercial uses on the coast of the East Sea (South China Sea).
