Vinh Long is on the Co Chien River, which branches out from the Mekong River at the narrows of My Thuan about 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) upstream, only to meet it later downstream. Across the Co Chien River from Vinh Long are the An Binh and Binh Hoa Phuoc islands, some 15 kilometers (9.3 mi) across, with the Mekong River on the other side. A number of canals run through Vinh Long, with tall vehicular bridges crossing them. Transport by boat is possible, although parts of the town, particularly An Binh, become unreachable at low tide.
Vinh Long is about two hours from the large city of Can Tho in the adjacent Hau Giang Province and about three hours from Saigon. The floating market town of Cai Be is on the other side of An Binh Island and is a frequent destination for tourists from Vinh Long.
