My Hometown
Good morning ! My name is Quang Ngoc. I come from Vu Ban district which is to the south of Nam Dinh. I am living with my parents and my sister, .In my free time , reading book and speaking English are my hobbies. Today I am here to tell you about my hometown.

Nam Dinh province is my home town. It is small but peaceful and beautiful and situated in the south of the Red River Delta. It is surrounding up by some others neighborhood province in the region such as Ha Nam, Thai Binh on the north and northeast, Ninh Binh on the west, the East Sea with 72km long coastlines.


Now let me take you to travel around Nam Dinh city first. The city is about 90 km southeast of Vietnam's capital, Hanoi. From Hanoi, it takes you an hour and a half to go there by a coach. If you are sick of cars, you can go by train. Nam Dinh railway-station is a big one in the North-South railway network, so it is very convenient for you to choose a trip. Nam Dinh is a political, economic, cultural, commercial center of the Red delta. It used to be called the textile city and it was recognized as the first municipality last year [pic]

Traveling around Nam Dinh city is simple and convenient. There are many different vehicles you can use such as: bus, taxi, motorbike, “xích lô”, bicycle. Two large rivers passing away Nam Dinh city are Red River and Đào River . The two rivers play an important role in river traffic and development of Nam Dinh in the long run. [pic]

Nam Dinh is famous for “phở”. Besides, you can enjoy many other specialties: gai cake, Ngự banana, Sìu Châu candy… If Hanoi has 36 old streets, Nam Dinh has also 40 ones , for example, Hàng Vàng, Hàng Bát, Hàng Nâu, Vải Màn… But now most of them don’t exist and trade traditional products like before. These small and old streets are on the bank of Đào River and contain peculiar pi'kju:ljə/riêng biệt shape which is related to 750-year-developing history of Nam Dinh city. Some streets still keep their initial i'niʃəl/ name such as: Hàng Tiện, Hàng Cấp, Bắc Ninh, Hàng Thao, Hàng Đồng, Hàng Sắt... The rest of them are changed name into: Hai Bà Trưng, Hoàng Văn Thụ… They are always crowded, busy and are important parts of Nam Dinh center. Nam Dinh city is also called “Thành Nam” and it has many handicraft villages, tourist potential and rich in many historical, cultural sites and many tourist attractions. If you are keen on religious and culture, I will take you to the Tran relic, the tower Pagoda, Co Le Pagoda, Keo Pagoda (Hanh Thien), Phu Day Relic... [pic]
