Central Vietnam
Regions of Vietnam.

Central Vietnam (Vietnamese: Trung B? or mi?n Trung), also known as Middle Vietnam or The Middle, formerly known as Trung Ph?n by South Vietnam, Trung K? and Annam under French Indochina, is one of the three geographical regions within Vietnam.

The name Trung B? was used by the king B?o i when he established administrative level higher than Province in 1945, instead of the Trung K? which recalled the French occupation. This name was officially used by government of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and is popularly used today.


Central Vietnam includes 3 administrative regions, which in turn comprises 19 First Tier units.
