Where is Viet Nam?

Where is Viet Nam Located in The World? Vietnam is a top travel destination in the world in general and in Southeast Asia in particular, so you know where Vietnam is located. This article will introduce you Vietnam in brief. 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 East Sea – to the east.
Vietnam is a top travel destination in Asia. A long, narrow country squeezed in between the East Sea and the Laos and Cambodia borders, Vietnam is a land of striking landscapes that range from the lush rice terraces and forested mountains in the north to the picturesque valleys of the Central Highlands and the fertile delta and beautiful beaches of the south.


Vietnam is among the rare destinations where your experience can be stretched to its limits. When it comes to tourism, Vietnam is a reverberating symphony of culture, history, landscape and at its heart, the people. Traveling to Vietnam, you will find that these categories are not rigid but rather diverse and dynamic. Every landscape you tread, every architecture you see, every dish you taste and every person you meet has a story to tell you. Therefore, no matter what preferences you have, Vietnam can offer you your best travel experience.

Vietnam Destinations

Start your vacation planning process with our comprehensive guide to Vietnam's major destinations. In each city or province, you will find information on things to do, food to try, places to stay and more. We have included what we think is the very best of Vietnam in our guide as well as specific travel tips for each destination.

Vietnam is most commonly divided in to three regions, each of which has distinctive geographical features and travel options. The North - Central - The Southern. The first words on everyone’s lips when speaking of Vietnam are undoubtedly “Halong Bay,” a beautiful set of karst islands and formations off the northern coast. Hanoi is the bustling, motorbike filled capital. There’s plenty of historical heritage at Hoi An, the beaches sparkle at the resort city of Nha Trang, and the Mekong Delta is full of winding waterways, floating markets, and lush scenery. Places to visit in Vietnam are almost endless.


The North

Most visitors to the North arrive in the country’s capital, Hanoi - the city is abuzz with sights, sounds, smells, and fabulous food - a delight to the senses! Narrow laneways lead to hidden cafes, ancient temples sit beside towering modern buildings, and swarms of motorbikes zip around serene lakes. Hanoi also has dozens of museums as well as the mausoleum and former home of Ho Chi Minh, the country’s most important political figure.

Escaping the busy capital, travelers are treated to some of Vietnam’s most stunning landscapes. The Northwest is full of mountainous terrain inhabited by several ethnic minorities. This area is well known for its trekking and is also home to Vietnam’s highest peak, mountain Fansipan. To the east of Hanoi lies the fertile Red River Delta and endless miles of farmland. Further afield is Halong Bay, a remarkable section of the Gulf of Tonkin filled with emerald waters and limestone cliffs.

The Central

Central Vietnam is the country’s cultural heart with ancient wonders and rich traditions. Hue was the seat of the Royal Imperial Court for centuries and its influence is seen today in the city’s architecture and culture. Several elaborate tombs and the mighty Citadel are still standing and modern buildings continue to incorporate design elements reminiscent of the era. The city’s food reflects the culinary demands of the former emperors and is regarded as the best in the country. Further south, Hoi An remains seemingly untouched from its years as a popular trading port. The traditional houses, tailor shops, and local markets are a delight to explore. The center is also the country’s narrowest strip of land and the scenery is extremely diverse. The stretch of land referred to as ‘the Central Highlands’ is another trekking destination for exploring Vietnam’s ethnic hill tribes.

The Southern

Southern Vietnam is dominated by Ho Chi Minh City, a modern, bustling city full of wide boulevards and highrise buildings. Travel just a short distance north and you can reach the fabulous beaches of Mui Ne, Phan Thiet, and Nha Trang as well as the cool highlands of Dalat. To the far south lies the Mekong Delta, where the Mekong River splays out in to thousands of tributaries. The winding canals, floating markets, and tiny villages of this area are an incredible sight to behold.

Climate


Viet Nam 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.

Cuisine


Vietnamese food is that good. Incredibly subtle in its flavours and outstanding in its diversity, Vietnamese cooking is a fascinating draw for travellers – myriad street-food tours and cooking schools are testament to this. Geography plays a crucial role, spices sparking up southern cuisine, and herbs and complex techniques typifying the central coastline, rightly renowned as Vietnam’s epicurean hot spot. And up and down the country you can mingle with villagers, sample local dishes and sip rice wine in Vietnam's many regional markets.

How long to spend in Vietnam?

You should spend at least two weeks in Vietnam to enjoy the main sights, but if you also want to go more off the beaten path, three weeks would be ideal.
