Vietnam's World Heritages
Oh, how beautiful our country is,
With its blue bays and green caves made by The Great Creator!
* * *
The Sacred Dragon created Ha Long.
Quang Ninh province can greatly enjoy its good luck.
The sky and the land are ours.
Peacefully, we can watch our nation's beauty!
Carefree, we have already arrived in Quang Binh province.
Please don't miss the picturesque sights.
Our boat has floated without notice
To the splendid water and mountain - Phong Nha - Ke Bang.
Saints, gods, fairies and Buddha...
So many beautiful sights in the caves

Go on to Hue city to watch the Huong River,
The Imperial Citadel, the Royal Palace and the beautiful house - gardens.
Let's listen to Nha Nhac Cung Dinh,
The royal melodious and lyrical music cheering your heart.
Pagodas, communal houses, royal tombs, temples, mountains, hills,
Many beautiful stories, songs and poems
How precious is the culture of our homeland
Adding perfume and colors to our country Vietnam.

Let's leave Hue for Quang Nam province,
And enjoy ourselves in Hoi An, the happy land.
Lively, yet peacefully,
Many ships from other countries have come here.
Friends from everywhere in the world
Have traveled to this land for sightseeing.
Please come to see old Champa temples - towers,
My Son Holy Land where gods and kings were worshipped.
With the skillful hands of the artists
Bricks were arranged in layers.
Carved on the walls of the temples
Are thoughtful prayers.

Let's watch the majestic Hon Den - Nui Chua Mountain
And listen to the merry whispers of Thu Bon river and Khe The spring
Our thirsty dream has been satisfied
Overflowed with joy, Tay Nguyen celebrated the happy event
The Cong Chieng vigorously played
All people happily gathered
Oh, Motherland, you are our Pride!
The Heritage Road opens to a bright future.
Let's cherish, preserve and make
Our beloved World Heritages more and more charming...
