1. Physical geological conditions of Thaibinh province. - Geological position:

Thaibinh is one of the provinces situated near by the sea in Bacbo plain (fig 1). Three sides of it are large rivers: Red River, Luoc River making natural border between Thaibinh and Haihung at the North and Thaibinh and Hanamninh at the South. Its Eastern side faces Biendong sea.

The area of this province is 1495 Km2. Population is about 1,539,500 people with a density of 1022 people/Km2.
