Location of the Red River Delta region in Vietnam

The Red River Delta (Vietnamese: Đồng Bằng Sông Hồng) is the flat plain formed by the Red River and its distributaries joining in the Thai Binh River in northern Vietnam. The delta measuring some 15,000 square km is well protected by a network of dikes. It is an agriculturally rich area and densely populated. Most of the land is devoted to rice cultivation.[1]

Eight provinces together with two municipalities, the capital Hà Nội and the main port Hải Phòng form the delta.

The region was bombed during the Vietnam War.
