It has a complex geography with mountain ranges extending up to the coast, making transport and infrastructure development challenging but favouring tourism in some places, most notable around Phan Thiet, Nha Trang, and Da Nang. Tourism also benefits from Cham (Champa) cultural heritage, including architecture, performances, and museums. It is generally much less industrialized and developed than the region around Ho Chi Minh City (Đông Nam Bộ) or the Red River Delta, but it has some regional industrial centers in Da Nang, around Nha Trang and Quy Nhon.

Topography In contrast to most other coastal regions in Vietnam, the South Central Coast's terrain is not mainly flat. It have a diverse topography with mountain ranges and hills extending not only along the entire border with the Central Highlands (Tây Nguyên) but also to the coast, Atlat Dia li Viet Nam (Geographical Atlas of Vietnam).

Many of the highest mountains are at or near the border with the Central Highlands (Tây Nguyên), the highest of which is Ngoc Linh mountain at 2598 meters. Viet Nam Administrative Atlas. Cartographic Publishing House, Hanoi 2010 There are several high peaks near the coast of Da Nang (696m on Son Tra Peninsula), Binh Dinh Province (up to 874m), Phu Yen Province (up to 814m), Khanh Hoa Province (up to 978m), and Ninh Thuan Province (up to 1040m). Several mountain passes function as geographic borders between the provinces of the region, with one or two provinces between two major passes. Major passes include the Hai Van Pass on the northern border of the region (Da Nang), Binh De pass (đèo Bình Đê) between Quang Ngai Province and Binh Dinh Province, Cu Mong pass (đèo Cù Mông) between Binh Dinh Province and Phu Yen Province and Ca pass (đèo Cả) between Phu Yen Province and Khanh Hoa Province.

The region includes several islands. Some of the larger ones are the Ly Son Islands (Ly Son, Vietnam), the Cham Islands, and Phu Quy island. The Paracel Islands and the Spratly Islands are officially administered by Da Nang and Khanh Hoa Province. However, sovereignty over them is disputed (Territorial disputes in the South China Sea) and Vietnam actually controls only some of the Spratly Islands. Climate Summer temperatures average above 28°C along most of the coast with slightly lower temperatures further inland. Winters are significantly cooler with average temperatures ranging from around 20 to 25°C. Interestingly, the region includes some of the most arid (Ninh Thuan Province and Binh Thuan Province) as well as some of wettest climates in Vietnam (Da Nang, parts of Quang Nam Province, Quang Ngai Province), with the rest being somewhere in between. While average precipitation per year exceeds 2800mm in many parts of the three provinces in the north of the region, it is less than 800mm in much of Ninh Thuan Province. The province with the largest sector 1 economy is Binh Dinh (Binh Dinh Province) (contributing 22.9% to the regions sector 1 GDP), due to its relatively large output in agriculture, forestry, and fishing. It is followed by Quang Nam Province with 15%, Binh Thuan Province with 14.6%, Quang Ngai Province and Khanh Hoa Province with around 13% each. Forestry output is concentrated in Quang Nam Province and Binh Dinh Province with around 25% each, with Quang Ngai Province and Binh Thuan Province contribute another 15% each, while Da Nang and especially Ninh Thuan Province have very small forestry sectors. Fishing output is highest in Khanh Hoa Province (22.3%) and Binh Dinh Province (19.6%), followed by Phu Yen Province and Quang Ngai Province with around 12% each and Quang Nam Province, Binh Thuan Province and Ninh Thuan Province with 9 to 10% each. Industry The South Central Coast is central Vietnam's most industrialized region, mostly due to major industrial centers such as Da Nang and Khanh Hoa Province. However, industrialization in the region is still lagging behind the national average and is far behind Vietnam's two major industrial hubs around Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. The region's industrial GDP was 35,885.4 billion VND in 2007, accounting for 37.35% of the region's total GDP and 7.54% of Vietnam's industrial GDP. More than 40% of that is produced in Khanh Hoa Province and Da Nang (21.8% and 20%) and another 13 to 14% each by Quang Nam Province and Binh Dinh Province. Binh Thuan Province has been able to increase its share to 12% with growth rates in industry averaging 21.6% from 2000 to 2007. Most other provinces have achieved growth between 15 and 20%, with slower growth only in the established industrial centers of Da Nang (14.8%) and Khanh Hoa Province (13%). The regions average industrial growth rate was 16.3% per year from 2000 to 2007, making the main driving force of the economy.

local training

Yukon Canadair CL-44D4-1 Crashed short of runway - By 26 February, the operation had drawn to a close, and ''Valley Forge'' reembarked her marines and sailed for Subic Bay. Following a round trip to Da Nang, the carrier steamed back to the west coast for an overhaul and local training along the California coast before again deploying to WestPac. Upon her return to Vietnamese waters, the ship took part in operations off Da Nang before she again returned to the United States at the end of the year 1966. Operation Pocket Money, the mining campaign against principal North Vietnamese ports, was launched 9 May 1972. Early that morning, an EC-121 aircraft took off from Da Nang airfield to provide support for the mining operation. A short time later, ''Kitty Hawk'' launched 17 ordnance-delivering sorties against the Nam Dinh railroad siding as a diversionary air tactic. Poor weather, however, forced the planes to divert to secondary targets at Thanh and Phu Qui. ''Coral Sea'' launched three A-6A Intruder (A-6 Intruder)s and six A-7E Corsair II (A-7 Corsair II) aircraft loaded with naval mines and one EKA-3B Skywarrior (A-3 Skywarrior) in support of the mining operation directed against the outer approaches to Haiphong Harbor. The mining aircraft departed the vicinity of ''Coral Sea'' timed to execute the mining at precisely 09:00 local time to coincide with President (President of the United States) Richard M. Nixon's public announcement in Washington that naval mines had been seeded. The Intruder flight led by the CAG, Commander Roger E. Sheets, was composed of United States Marine Corps aircraft from VMA-224 and headed for the inner channel. *Doha (Qatar) — Pitcairn Island *Hué and Da Nang (Vietnam)— Arequipa (Peru) *Manila (Philippines) — Cuiabá (Brazil) Vietnam War During the Vietnam War, the Neptune was used by the US Navy as a gunship, an overland reconnaissance and sensor deployment aircraft, and in its traditional role as a maritime patrol aircraft. The Neptune was also utilized by the U.S. Army's 1st Radio Research Company (Aviation), call sign "Crazy Cat," located at Cam Ranh Bay, as an electronic "ferret" aircraft. Observation Squadron 67 (VO-67), call sign "Lindy", was the only P-2 Neptune aircraft squadron to ever receive the Presidential Unit Citation. VO-67 lost three OP-2E aircraft and 20 aircrew to ground fire during its secret missions into Laos and Vietnam in 1967–68. The ROCAF Taiwan's secret 34th Squadron's RB-69A P2V-7U ELINT SIGINT (Signals intelligence) aircraft flew a low level electronic reconnaissance from Da Nang, flying over Thanh Hoa province on 20 August 1963 to investigate an air resupply drop zone that turned out to be a set trap for a Republic of China Air Force (ROCAF) C-123B airdrop mission 10 days earlier due to the air-inserted agents having been captured and turned. Next year, an air defense radar mapping mission was also flown by 34th Squadron's RB-69A P2V-7U aircraft into North Vietnam and Laos on the night of 16 March 1964. The RB-69A took off from Da Nang, flew up the Gulf of Tonkin before coasting in near Haiphong, then flew down North Vietnam and the Laos border. The mission was requested by SOG (Studies and Observations Group) for helping plan the insert or resupply of agents.

Đà Nẵng is the commercial and educational center of Central Vietnam, with a well-sheltered, easily accessible port; its location on the path of National Route 1A (National Route 1A (Vietnam)) and the North–South Railway (North–South Railway (Vietnam)) makes it a hub for transportation. It is located within 100 km of several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Imperial City of Huế (Imperial City (Huế)), the Old Town of Hội An, and the Mỹ Sơn ruins. The city was previously known as '''Cửa Hàn''' during early Đại Việt settlement, and as '''Tourane''' (or '''Turon''') during French colonial rule (French Indochina). It is the third biggest economic center in Vietnam (after Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi).

Before 1997, the city was part of Quảng Nam-Đà Nẵng Province.
