The central part of Vietnam extends over 1000km from north to south and includes the Annam mountain range, home to many of Vietnam's hill people. The coastal plains are in some points just a few km wide. Here is where the Champa kingdom flourished between the 7th and 19th centuries. In the middle of the central region there are a number of UNESCO World Heritage sites: the imperial city of Hue, a former capital of Vietnam, My Son, a one time capital of the Champa kingdom and the ancient city of Hoi An, an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port.
