Population of Cities in Vietnam (2021)
Vietnam is the 66th largest country in the world. With its large size also comes a very big population, and this country has a population of over 94 million, making it the 15th most populous country in the world. Despite its large total population, Vietnam only has two cities that have passed the 1,000,000 population mark. Ho Chi Minh City is the largest in the country with a population of over 3.4 million. The next largest city, Hanoi, has a population of over 1.4 million, which lags significantly behind Ho Chi Minh City's figures. To round out the rest of the overall population, the country has 32 cities with at least 100,000 residents, and an additional 51 cities with populations between 10,000 and 100,000.
This doesn't account for all of the country's population, however, as there are smaller towns and a total rural population of 66%, which constitutes a large portion. However, data from past years shows that the rural population is declining, partly because of the expansion and growth of cities and more people moving from more isolated areas to the urban areas for their industries, higher education institutes, landmarks and attractions. In recent years, Vietnam's growth has slowed down significantly, so while the major cities will continue to see growth in the near future, it's unlikely that these numbers will grow at the rapid rates observed in the past.
