Vietnam is divided into 58 provinces (Vietnamese: tỉnh, from the Chinese 省, shěng). There are also five municipalities (thành phố trực thuộc trung ương), which are administratively on the same level as provinces. The provinces are subdivided into provincial municipalities (thành phố trực thuộc tỉnh), townships (thị xã) and counties (huyện), which are in turn subdivided into towns (thị trấn) or communes (xã). The centrally controlled municipalities are subdivided into districts (quận) and counties, which are further subdivided into wards (phường).

As previously stated, naming of the road in Vietnam will use province name as a city name except for municipalities (Hanoi and Hai Phong at Red River Delta, Da Nang at South Central Coast, Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon at Southeast, and Cần Thơ at Mekong Delta ).

Municipality will use town, urban districts (Quận), or rural districts (Huyện) as city name
