Vietnam Travel and Tourism

Vietnam Flag

Vietnam , is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is bordered by China to the north, Laos to the northwest, Cambodia to the southwest, and the South China Sea to the east. With a population of over 86 million, Vietnam is the 13th most populous country in the world. The people of Vietnam regained independence and broke away from China in AD 938 after their victory at the battle of Bạch Đằng River. Successive dynasties flourished along with geographic and political expansion deeper into Southeast Asia, until it was colonized by the French in the mid-19th century. Efforts to resist the French eventually led to their expulsion from the country in the mid-20th century, leaving a nation divided politically into two countries. Fighting between the two sides continued during the Vietnam War, ending with a North Vietnamese victory in 1975. Emerging from this prolonged military engagement, the war-ravaged nation was politically isolated. The government’s centrally planned economic decisions hindered post-war reconstruction and its treatment of the losing side engendered more resentment than reconciliation. In 1986, it instituted economic and political reforms and began a path towards international reintegration. By 2000, it had established diplomatic relations with most nations. Its economic growth had been among the highest in the world in the past decade. These efforts culminated in Vietnam joining the World Trade Organization in 2007 and its successful bid to become a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council in 2008.

The beautiful churches of Dalat - Hanoi
The beautiful churches of Dalat Dalat Cathedral Reaching the top of Prenn Pass, the gate to downtown Dalat, visitors can sight the high bell tower of the principle church of Dalat in the distance. However, the church on Tran Phu Street near the city post office is better known under the name of Nha Tho Con Ga because on the top of its bell tower sits the statue of a rooster, or con ga in Vietnamese. Historical documents show that the church started out as a small chapel that the French built in 1920 and named Hic Domus Est Dei. Two years later it was rebuilt into a 26m long, 8m wide cathedral with a 16m tall bell tower. From July 1931 to January 1942 the church was enlarged again to turn it into the largest cathedral in Dalat. Now it is...

Yang Bay imposing waterfall in Khanh Hoa - Hanoi
Yang Bay imposing waterfall in Khanh Hoa Yang Bay means smoke and dew of heaven?. It's high up in the hills where the air is fresh, cool and the spray thrown in all directions creates a screen of zillions of tiny water drops. Even though it's only 40km from Nha Trang City, Yang Bay was known only to woodcutters and a few other locals in the past. It didn't appear on any tourist map until 1998. Local authorities got to hear about it and decided to build a road. And a State -owned company called Khatoco has spent VND 20 billion turning the ?sleeping beauty? into Yang Bay Tourism Park without despoiling the landscape. Still, there is a plastic something-or-other swaying lightly in the wind to welcome visitors at the main entrance and from a distance they...
