Viva Vietnam...

Vietnam.. the name says it all.. What does 'Vietnam' mean to you?

Vietnam formally the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Cộng hòa xã hội chủ nghĩa Việt Nam , is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

With an estimated 91.5 million inhabitants as of 2012, it is the world's 13th-world-most-populous country

The name Vietnam translates as "South Viet", and was officially adopted in 1945.

The country is bordered by China, to the north, Laos to the northwest, Cambodia to the southwest, and South China sea to the east.
Capital is Hanoi
 Largest city is Ho Chi Min City (Saigon)

Because of differences in latitude and the marked variety in topographical relief, the Vietnamese climate tends to vary considerably from place to place.

During the winter or dry season, extending roughly from November to April, the monsoon winds usually blow from the northeast along the China coast and across the Gulf of Tonkin, picking up considerable moisture. Consequently, the winter season in most parts of the country is dry only by comparison with the rainy or summer season.
Vietnamese cuisine uses very little oil and many vegetables. The main dishes are often based on rice and soy sauce.  Sugar, serrano peppers, lime and nuoc mam  (fish sauce) are among the most common flavorings, as are mint and basil.

Vietnam has become a major tourist destination since the 1990s, assisted by significant state and private investment, particularly in coastal regions. About 3.77 million international tourists visited Vietnam in 2009 alone

Get there today!!! You won't be disappointed..   Viva Vietnam.
