East sea bordering the South China sea.

The provincial capital of Quang Nam is located in Tam Ky city, with the ancient town of Hoi An. Quang Nam is located about halfway between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City along National Highway 1A.

Quang Nam province has an area of 10,574.86 km2 (4,082.98 sq mi),[1] the 6th largest in Vietnam, the population in 2022 is 1,519,400 people[5], the population density reaches 144 people/km2.


The terrain gradually lowers from west to east and is divided into 3 regions: the mountains in the west, the midlands in the middle and the coastal plain in the east. Quang Nam is located in the tropical monsoon climate zone, the average annual temperature is above 25 °C, the average annual rainfall reaches 2,000-2,500mm with more than 70% concentrated in the 3 months of the rainy season (October, November and December). twelfth). Vu Gia - Thu Bon and Tam Ky are two main river basins.

In general, Quang Nam's natural conditions (weather-climate, terrain, water and sea resources) have many advantages and potential for developing diverse and unique cultural careers (developing small and medium-sized cities). cultural areas), developing the tourism industry (cultural tourism, eco-tourism).

Quang Nam's terrain tilts gradually from West to East, forming three distinct types of ecological landscapes: high mountains in the West, midlands in the middle and coastal plains. Hilly areas account for 72% of the natural area with many peaks over 2,000m high such as Lum Heo mountain 2,045m high, Tion mountain 2,032m high, Gole - Lang mountain 1,855m high (Phuoc Son district). Ngoc Linh Mountain, 2,598m high, located between the border of Quang Nam and Kon Tum, is the highest peak of the Truong Son range. In addition, the coastal area east of the Truong Giang River is a long sand dune running from Dien Ngoc, Dien Ban to Tam Quang, Nui Thanh. The terrain surface is divided by a fairly developed river system including Thu Bon River, Tam Ky River and Truong Giang River.

Quang Nam has a 125 km long coastline, with many beautiful and famous beaches, such as: Ha My (Dien Ban), Cua Dai (Hoi An), Binh Minh (Thang Binh), Tam Thanh (Tam Ky). , Bai Rang (Nui Thanh),... Cu Lao Cham is a coastal island cluster with a rich ecosystem recognized as a world biosphere reserve.


Quang Nam is located in a tropical climate zone, with only two seasons: the rainy season and the dry season, influenced by the cold winter in the North. The average annual temperature is 25.6 °C. In winter, the temperature in the plains can drop below 12 °C and the temperature in the mountains is even lower. The average humidity in the air reaches 84%. Average rainfall is 2000-2500mm. The rainy season usually lasts from October to December, the dry season lasts from February to August, January and September are transition months characterized by turbulent weather and quite a lot of rain. Rain is unevenly distributed in space, with more rain in mountainous areas than in the plains. The Northwest region of the Bung River basin (Dong Giang, Tay Giang and Nam Giang districts) has the lowest rainfall while the Southwest mountainous region of the Thu Bon River basin (Nam Tra My, Bac Tra My, Tien Phuoc and Hiep Duc) have the highest rainfall. Tra My is one of the heaviest rainfall centers in Vietnam with an average annual rainfall exceeding 4,000 mm. Heavy rain concentrates in a short period of time during the 3 months of the rainy season on a narrow, steep terrain, creating favorable conditions for rivers to flood rapidly.

There are currently two meteorological stations in the province that have fully monitored meteorological factors for a long time (starting from 1976), Tam Ky station and Tra My station. Tam Ky station located in Hoa Thuan ward, Tam Ky city is used to calculate relevant meteorological factors for the eastern plain of the province. Tra My station located in Tra My town, Bac Tra My district is used to calculate relevant meteorological factors for the western mountainous region of the province.

Water Resources

Quang Nam has two large river systems: Vu Gia - Thu Bon (VG-TB) and Tam Ky. The VG-TB basin area (including part of the basin in Kon Tum province, Quang Ngai, and Da Nang city is 10,350 km², one of the 10 river systems with the largest basin area in Vietnam and the largest river basin in Vietnam). Tam Ky is 735 km². The rivers originate from the eastern slope of the Truong Son range, flow mainly in the West-East direction and flow into the East Sea at Han estuary (Da Nang), Dai estuary (Hoi An) and An Hoa (Mountain Thanh). In addition to the above two river systems, Truong Giang River has a length of 47 km flowing along the coast in the North - South direction connecting the VG-TB and Tam Ky river systems.

Due to steep hilly terrain and heavy rainfall, the river network of Quang Nam province is quite dense. The average river density is 0.47 km/km2 for the VG - TB system and 0.6 km/km2 for other river systems.

The rivers have a large flow and are full of water all year round. The average annual flow of the Vu Gia river (up to Thanh My town with a basin area of 1,850 km2) is 127 m3/s, of the Thu Bon river (up to Nong Son with a basin area of 3,130 km2) is 281 m3/s. The flow regime of rivers has clear seasonal divisions. The flow in the 3 months of the flood season (October, November, December) accounts for 65 - 70% of the total yearly flow while the flow in the dry season (from February to August) is very low. January and September are transitional months with erratic flows. The maximum flow of Thu Bon at Nong Son is 10,600 m3/s and the minimum flow measured is 15.7 m3/s while the maximum flow of Vu Gia at Thanh My is 4,540 m3/s and the minimum flow is 10.5 m3/s. High flow in the rainy season and low flow in the dry season are the main causes of floods and droughts in the region.[6]

Rich water resources are the premise for hydropower development in the area. As of 2015, in Quang Nam there are 8 hydropower projects with large capacity (over 100 MW) and 35 hydropower projects with small capacity. Many large capacity hydropower plants such as Song Tranh 2, Dak Mi 4, A Vuong, Song Bung 2, Song Bung 4, Song Kon 2... have been and are being built, contributing to supplying electricity to the growing demand. increase of the whole country.

Land resources

Land use: According to statistical data, land inventory on January 1, 2010, out of the total natural area of 1,043,836 hectares, agricultural land area accounts for 798,790 hectares, non-agricultural land area is 87,765 hectares and Unused land area is 157,281 hectares.

The total natural area of Quang Nam is 1,043,803 hectares, formed from nine different types of soil including sand dunes and coastal sandy soil, river alluvial soil, sea alluvial soil, infertile gray soil, red yellow soil, valleys, degraded soils, eroded rocks, etc. Alluvial soils along rivers are the most important soil group in the development of food crops and short-term industrial crops. The yellow-red soil group in mountainous areas is favorable for growing forests, industrial crops and long-term fruit trees. The coastal sandy soil group is being exploited for aquaculture purposes.

Forest resources

Quang Nam province has 425,921 hectares of forest, the coverage rate is 40.9%; The province's wood reserves are about 30 million m3. The area of natural forest is 388,803 hectares, planted forest is 37,118 hectares. Rich forests in Quang Nam currently have about 10 thousand hectares, distributed in high mountain peaks. The remaining forest areas are mainly poor forests, medium forests and regenerated forests, with wood reserves of about 69 m3/ha. The nature reserves in the province are located on the Thanh River in Nam Giang district.

In April 2011, authorities of Quang Nam province established the Saola Nature Reserve (English: Saola Nature Reserve), opening a corridor for mountainous creatures between Laos and Vietnam, especially the saola species. threatened.

Evergreen broadleaf tropical forests are the main ecological type of Quang Nam. Quang Nam is a province rich in forest potential, but due to overexploitation for a long time, the area of primary forests is still small. The promotion of afforestation in recent years has increased Quang Nam's forested land area by more than 55% in 2014. This is one of the localities with the highest forested land area in the country. Thanh River special-use forest is the largest conservation area in the province, where wild animals in the Central Truong Son area are being preserved. Ngoc Linh ginseng is a precious medicinal plant distributed mainly at altitudes of over 1,000 m of Ngoc Linh mountain.

Potential for hydropower development

Quang Nam has a dense river and stream system with great hydroelectric potential. The Vu Gia - Thu Bon river system with most of the basin located within the province's boundaries is considered to have the fourth largest hydroelectric potential in the country, which is being invested and exploited.[23] Currently, the province has hydropower plants that have been and are being built such as A Vuong Hydropower Plant (210 MW - Tay Giang), Song Bung 2 (100 MW), Song Bung 4 (220 MW), Song Giang (60 MW), Dak Mi 1 (255 MW), Dak Mi 4 (210 MW), Kon River 2 (60 MW), Song Tranh 2 (135 MW),... Most hydropower plants are located in the Vu Gia river basin where there are Steep terrain and great hydroelectric potential.

The construction of hydroelectric projects upstream of Vu Gia - Thu Bon greatly affects the downstream flow. The Dak Mi 4 hydropower plant transfers water from Vu Gia to Thu Bon, significantly reducing the flow downstream of Vu Gia. During the dry season from February to August, the Vu Gia riverside area often faces a lack of water for living and farming. Reduced flow is the main cause of saltwater intrusion downstream into Vu Gia, Thu Bon and Vinh Dien.

In 1965, the Americans built Chu Lai airport, aiming to serve military activities in the Central region and Central Highlands. 40 years later, on March 2, 2005, Chu Lai airport welcomed the first commercial flight from Ho Chi Minh City, marking a historic event for the province.[34] In 2010, Vietnam Airlines launched the Chu Lai - Hanoi flight route. Chu Lai airport's commercial operation will strongly promote the development not only of Quang Nam (with Chu Lai industrial park) but also of Quang Ngai province (with Dung Quat industrial park). Further, Chu Lai airport will be developed into an international airport to serve the transit of passengers and goods in the region.[35] In addition, putting Chu Lai airport into operation will make it easier for tourists to visit two world cultural heritages, Hoi An Ancient Town and My Son Sanctuary.
