National Highway 25 is an east-west highway in central Vietnam. It intersects the main National Highway 1 in Tuy Hoa Town, now in Phu Yen Province, and then runs west to Dac Lac Province in the western Highlands. Eventually, it will link with northeast Cambodia and south Laos.

In the 1975 fall of South Vietnam, Tuy Hoa was a key target after the People's Army of Viet Nam invading force took Ban Me Thuot. By holding Tuy Hoa, they blocked Highway 1 and cut South Vietnam in half.
