is beautiful country, a long, hourglass of land,
stretching over 900 miles up the eastern coast
of the Indochinese Peninsula. Vietnamese people
describe their country as a bamboo shoulder pole
slung with two baskets of rice - the fertile
southern Mekong Delta and the northern Red River
Delta. From these lowland paddy Fields stretch
vast rubber plantations, rolling hills covered
with thick jungle, and jagged mountains rising
more than 10,000 feet in height. Vietnam is an
incredibly exotic Asian jewel, with over 1900
miles of coastline features the endless
stretches of empty, serene white sand beaches of
Phan Thiet, Nha Trang, Phu Quoc and others. And
Vietnam can accommodate the seasoned world
traveler in everything from five star Vietnamese
resorts and Asian expats can find even the most
modest of Vietnam housing for long term stays.
Vietnam's varied topography allows for an
incredibly varied Asia travel experience. The
country offers everything from tropical coastal
lowlands to temperate zones above 6000 feet. In
South Vietnam, the rainy season lasts from May
to November, but the showers are usually limited
to brief bursts in the late afternoons. Along
Vietnam?s central coast, the driest season runs
from June to October. Visitors to North Vietnam
are often surprised by the region's distinct
seasons; summers are hot and humid while winters
are invigoratingly cool. Travel to Vietnam is a
year round adventure.
Along with fine tropical weather, spectacular
natural scenery and historic sites, Vietnam's
greatest resource is its friendly, welcoming
people. Long closed to the outside world,
Vietnam retains a charming innocence that more
touristy regions lack. And the Vietnamese people
and their smile will remain in your memory long
after you depart.

Three quarters of Vietnam's territory consists
of mountains and hills. Vietnam is divided into
four distinct mountainous zones.
Red River Delta, or Northern Delta
region stretches for 15,000 sq.km. Over time,
deposits of alluvium carried from the Red River
and Thai Binh River have accumulated to form the
ancient Viet people settled at the junction of
the two rivers . At that time, the wet rice
civilization was established
Mekong River Delta, or Southern Delta
region is approximately 40,000 sq. km. The land
is very fertile and has favorable climate
conditions for agriculture. As a result, it is
the largest rice growing region in Vietnam.
Vietnam is crisscrossed by thousands of streams
and rivers. There is a river discharging every
20 kilometers along Vietnam's coastline. The
waterways are a very convenient means of
transport with major rivers like the Red River
in the north and the Mekong River in the south.
Vietnam's coastline is 3,260 km long. If you
have a chance to travel along the coast of
Vietnam, you will be able to enjoy the beautiful
beaches of Tra Co, Sam Son, Lang Co, Non Nuoc,
Nha Trang, Vung Tau, and Ha Tien. In some
places, you will see mountains jutting out to
the sea. One such magnificent site is Halong
Bay, which has recently been two times listed as
a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Vietnam's coast has been awarded a series of
large seaports, such as the ones at Haiphong,
Danang, Qui Nhon, Cam Ranh, Vung Tau, and
Saigon. There are thousands of islands and
islets scattered offshore from North to South.
Among the most popular tourist destinations are
the Truong Sa and Hoang Sa Archipelagos.
forests of Vietnam account for most of the total
land area. National parks are preserved by the
state and follow a steady development plan. Some
of the more famous national parks located
throughout the country include Ba Vi in Ha Tay,
Cat Ba in Haiphong, Cuc Phuong in Ninh Binh,
Bach Ma in Hue, and Cat Tien in Dong Nai.
Vietnam has a variety of mineral resources.
Beneath the forests are valuable minerals such
as tin, zinc, silver, gold, antimony, precious
stones, and coal. Vietnam also has large
deposits of oil and gas on its offshore islands
and on the mainland.
Vietnam also has abundant subterranean mineral
water sources. These are found at Quang Hanh in
Quang Ninh, Hoi Van in Binh Dinh, Vinh Hao in
Binh Thuan, Duc My in Nha Trang, Kim Boi in Hoa
Binh, and Binh Chau in Vung Tau.
Red River in the north and the Mekong River in
the south are the two major freshwater streams.
The Red flows almost directly southeast from the
northwestern highlands, whereas the Mekong
follows an irregular path from Cambodia, crosses
southernmost Viet Nam, and empties in the South
China Sea through a complex network of
distributaries. Both rivers have been leveed to
prevent flood damage.
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
annual average temperature ranges from 22ºC to
27ºC. In Hanoi, the average temperature is 23ºC,
in Ho Chi Minh City it is 26ºC, and in Hue it is
There are two distinguishable seasons. The cold
season occurs from November to April and the hot
season from May to October. The difference in
temperature between the two seasons in southern
Vietnam is almost unnoticeable, averaging 3ºC.
The most noticeable variations are found in the
northern provinces where differences of 12ºC
have been observed. There are essentially four
distinct seasons, which are most evident in the
Vegetation and Animal Life
Abundant vegetation exists throughout Viet Nam
except where the landscape has been denuded.
Typical mixed stands in the rain forests contain
a wide variety of pines, broadleaf trees, vines,
and bamboos. Dense mangroves bordering the
distributaries of the deltas often hinder access
to the water's edge. The tropical rain forests
are inhabited by large mammals such as
elephants, deer, bears, tigers, and leopards.
Smaller animals, including monkeys, hares,
squirrels, and otters, are found throughout the
country. Reptiles such as crocodiles, snakes,
and lizards, as well as many species of birds,
are also indigenous.
northern highlands of Viet Nam contain valuable
minerals, including iron, anthracite coal,
phosphate, zinc, chromite, tin, and apatite.
Petroleum and natural gas deposits lie offshore.
Vietnamese, the official language, is spoken by
the majority of the population (see
Austro-Asiatic Languages). The use of French, a
remnant of colonial times, is declining. Some
Vietnamese people who live in urban areas speak
other languages, such as English and Russian.
Khmer, Montagnard, and Cham are spoken primarily
in the interior.
