Up to now, there have been dozens of the geothermal study projects of the state organizations and private economic organizations invested in the North-West Part, North-South Part, Mid Part and South Part of Vietnam with the mainly goal to find out the geothermal resources that can be used to generate the electricity but the data of geology, geophysics, hydrogeology, geochemistry and drilling of these geothermal study projects have shown clearly that there is no geothermal resource that can be used to generate electricity with current technology. But the geothermal resources of Vietnam have been considerately attractive to investment organizations and to tourists for bath, canning for drinking and sightseeing in recent years. Recently acquired data of geology, geophysics, hydrogeology, geochemistry and drilling have confirmed that the Mid Part of Vietnam has the most attractive geothermal resources for geothermal mud-bathing, hot water bathing and sightseeing of tourism.
