Cam Ranh has a population of around 130,000 households and covers an area of more than 30,000ha.


The city has a deep-water bay with many beautiful beaches and it is some 30km away from the coastal city of Nha Trang.


The Khanh Hoa People’s Committee has approved a planning project to develop Cam Ranh. This will start now until 2025.


In addition, Cam Ranh airport became an international airport with the opening of an official direct air route linking Cam Ranh and Vladivostock in Russia last December.


The national aviation sector invested more than VND200 billion in building a new terminal, air traffic control station, a modern runway lights and other facilities in Cam Ranh Airport. The capacity of the new terminal doubles the old one which was only capable of loading 300 passengers per hour.


Khanh Hoa has currently two big cities including Nha Trang and Cam Ranh, and a town called Ninh Hoa.
