GTER 2017 (ISM-2017) will provide an excellent opportunity for scientists, experts to share their knowledge and experiences in the field of Earth sciences. The focus of the conference will be subjects dealing with issues of contemporary scientific and technological advances related to the Earth resources and Geo-spatial technologies.

Vietnam has been known as a country with a wide range of natural resources, their extraction and environmental protection, which have been undertaking seriously by the Government of Vietnam. The theme of the conference is "Geo-spatial technologies and Earth resources", believed to be of common interest both to Vietnam and other countries in the world.

Ha Long Bay is in Northeastern Vietnam on the shores of the Gulf of Tonkin, a comfortable 3 hours drive from Hanoi. The bay is dominated by more than 1,600 limestone karsts and islets which rise out of the waters of the bay to heights of up to 100 meters (330 feet) and the numerous caves and grottos spread throughout the bay. Such is the significance of Halong Bay that in 1994, UNESCO recognized the heart of Halong Bay as being a site of natural World Heritage and stated that "Apart from Halong Bay there are no equivalent sites on the World Heritage List...".


The Trang An Landscape Complex has been known as the Ha Long Bay of the land. It is the home of hundreds of islands forming a natural wonder. The mountains are connected by rice paddies, not water. You can cycle to them, not sail. However, there are sections that are submerged under water. While it is possible to cycle, drive – or even walk – around the mountains, most people choose to use boats to travel through some of the most scenic parts of the region.


Sapa is one of the most interesting sightseeing in the north of Vietnam, with the height around 1500-1650 m above sea level. Sapa is a land of modest, quietly but hides varies wonderful of natural scenes and Sapa is also a nest of hill tribe as: Black H'Mong, Red Dzao, Xa Pho, Tay, Zay, etc. Travel to Sapa, people forget everything, just enjoy the fresh air, clouds, sky, romantic scenery, majestic place, that is the reason why Sapa town is also known as the town in the cloud. With an average temperature of 14-18°C, cool in summer but a bit cold in winter. Sapa always attract tourists in whole year.


Ha Noi is Vietnam's capital with more than 1000 years of history. Its streets surge with scooters vying for right of way amid the din of constantly blaring horns, and all around layers of history reveal periods of French and Chinese occupation – offering a glimpse into the resilience of ambitious, proud Hanoians. Negotiate a passage past the ubiquitous knock-off merchants and you’ll find the original streets of the Old Quarter. Defiant real-deal farmers hawk their wares, while city folk breakfast on noodles, practise t’ai chi at dawn on the shores of Hoan Kiem Lake, or play chess with goateed grandfathers. Dine on the wild and wonderful at every corner, sample market wares, uncover an evolving arts scene, then sleep soundly in a little luxury for very little cost.
