If you are travelling by road between Hanoi and Hue this is a convenient point to break the journey. There are a few things to see around Vinh but the town itself is not particularly interesting. 14km to the north-west is Kim Lien which is the house in which Ho Chi Minh was born and spent his early childhood. There is also a museum nearby. You can also visit Cua Lo Beach, a stretch of white sand shaded by pine trees.
Vietnam Airlines has flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Vinh 3 times per week. Buses run to/from Danang, Hanoi, Buon ma Thout and Ho Chi Minh City. You can also get a bus to the Cau Treo border crossing if you are heading for Loas.
Vinh is also a stopping place for the Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City express.
"There is indeed not much to see, but the beach at Cua Lo is nice for a day or two. Don't expect high class services, it's a place mainly for domestic travellers. Uncle Ho's birth place is worth a visit, and so is Nguyen Du's house (famous VN poet), some 10 km from Vinh." - Frank
