Vietnam is the Southeast Asia’s most beautiful country known for its lush mountains, bustling cities, rivers, Buddhist Pagodas and golden sand beaches. It is located at the eastern edge of the Indochinese Peninsula. Vietnam is divided into 58 provinces and five municipalities, covering 331,699 square kilometers, with a population of over 96 million inhabitants, making it the world’s sixteenth-most populous country. Vietnam shares borders of China to the north, and Laos and Cambodia to the west. Archaeological excavations indicate that Vietnam was inhabited as early as the Paleolithic age.
Modern Vietnam was born upon the Proclamation of Independence from France in 1945. Conflicts intensified in the Vietnam War, which saw extensive American intervention in support of South Vietnam, while the Soviets and the Chinese supported the North—which ended with North Vietnamese victory in 1975. As a result of the successful reforms, Vietnam has enjoyed high economic growth rate, consistently ranked among the fastest growing economies of the world. Despite rapid modernisation in Vietnam’s urban centres of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, time-honoured traditions remain intact amongst the locals.
Ha Long Bay, Ho Chi Minh City, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, My Son (old Hindu temple), Hoi An, Sapa Countryside, Hanoi, Nha Trang, Cu Chi Tunnels, Ba Be National Park, Mekong Delta and Mui Né are the most beautiful tourist place to explore the Vietnam.
