From rugged mountains in North Vietnam to white-sand beaches on the south coast: 33 different National Parks in Vietnam protect this country’s beautiful nature. The national parks consist of various ecosystems, including land, river deltas, and coastal and marine areas. The first area that was designated as a national park was Cat Ba National Park in 1986, Phia Oac – Phia Dén National Park and the Tà Dùng National Park located in the Central Highlands were the last areas added to the list in 2018.
