Vietnam - Country & People

vietnam-trips-travelMainland Territory: 331,211.6 sq. km

Population: 85,789.6 thousand inhabitants (Apr. 2009)

National Capital: Hanoi

Lying on the eastern part of the Indochinese peninsula, Vietnam is a strip of land shaped like the letter “S”. China borders it to the north, Laos and Cambodia to the west, the East Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the east and south.
The country’s total length from north to south is 1,650km. Its width, stretching from east to west, is 600km at the widest point in the north, 400km in the south, and 50km at the narrowest part, in the centre, in Quang Binh Province. The coastline is 3,260km long and the inland border is 4,510km.
Vietnam is also a transport junction from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.
Climate Vietnam is located in both a tropical and a temperate zone. It is characterized by strong monsoon influences, but has a considerable amount of sun, a high rate of rainfall, and high humidity.
Regions located near the tropics and in the mountainous regions are endowed with a temperate climate.Resources Vietnam has a variety of mineral resources. Located beneath the subsoil are precious stones, coal and valuable minerals such as tin, zinc, silver, gold and antimony. Vietnam also has large deposits of oil and gas on its offshore islands and on the mainland.
Topography Three quarters of Vietnam's territory consists of mountains and hills. Vietnam is divided into four distinct mountainous zones."Hanoi" means the "inside of the river" and the name "Saigon" may have been derived from "cay gon" which refers to the poles sunk in the alluvial mud upon which the houses were built.
Placed amongst a mosaic of lakes, Hanoi, the capital, still retains the red-tile-roofed French provincial ambience of years gone by amidst the surging urbane energy of a modern metropolis fused to a thousand-year history of Chinese cultural influence. A city to stroll in, to gawk at its market offerings, munch tropical fruits, sip delicate teas, Hanoi also has places to ponder ancient verities: the Temple of Literature, the One-Pillar Pagoda, the Lake of the Restored Sword.
Saigon, on the other hand, commercial hub of the south spun along mangrove riverbanks, threatens to become a financial lightning rod. Once an Asian Venice, its main thoroughfares are now boulevards of filled-in canals wiring between traffic rotaries to form interconnected molecules of enterprise.
From Chinese Cholon to very Vietnamese Dakao, each sector of the city sports its unique flavor, its characteristic foods, its particular pace -- all, however, displaying little school girls, office clerks, business women adorned in the traditional national dress, the "ao dai" of silk over-tunic and pantaloons, lending an air of unhurried grace to the frenetic activity.
The sights, sounds, tastes, and smells Vietnam offers may be diverse, but strung as these are between the mountains and the sea, they present a unified gestalt held together by the cultural landscape reflecting the soil upon which it is borne.
