Vietnam Travel Information


Vietnam Flag Vietnam (the Socialist Republic of Vietnam) is a country in southeastern Asia. It has land borders with Cambodia, Laos, and the People's Republic of China.

As of 2009, Vietnam had a population of 85,789,573. The capital city, Hanoi, has a population of about 6.5 million. The country's largest city is however Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon, and still commonly referred to by that name), which has a population of about 7.1 million.

Vietnam was only unified only in 1976, after a long struggle for independence, and even longer war between the Communist North, and the non-Communist South (the Communists eventually achieved victory in 1975). For the first years after unification, the economy was based around a centrally planned economy, but beginning from 1986, market-orientated reforms were gradually introduced (although the government remains a one party Communist state). Rapid economic growth followed in the 1990s and 2000s, although the country remains a relatively poor country.

Product Description:
In this completely updated and revised guide to Vietnam, James Sullivan's enthusiasm for his adopted country is clear in his coverage of all of major sites, along with some lesser known surprises as well. The book begins in the ancient capital of Hanoi, moving on to surrounding sites including fabled Ha Long Bay and hilltribe villages tucked away in the jungle-covered mountains; North-Central Vietnam, including visits to Vietnamese tunnels related to the Vietnam War; the ancient cities of Hue and Hoi An; the Southern Central Highlands, featuring wildlife-filled Cat Tien National Park; bustling Ho Chi Minh City; and the vast Mekong Delta. Several in-depth features delve deeper into Vietnam's history and culture, including discussions on the hilltribes and the life of the boatpeople in the Mekong Delta; and self-guided walks and drives take you, for example, through Hanoi's picturesque Old Quarter and along the cliffside beauty between Hue and Danang. You'll also find lists of Not-To-Be-Missed Sites; experiential sidebars that guide you to get to know Vietnam more intimately, including where to see water puppets, train trips to Trai Mat, and the new "in" beaches to visit; and a hefty Travelwise section offers hand-picked hotels and restaurants.

Aimed at active travelers who want authentic, enriching, cultural experiences and expert advice from a trustworthy source, National Geographic Travelers provide ways for people to experience a place rather than just visit, and give the true feel of each destination not easily found online.
