The Socialist Republic of Vietnam is one of the world’s last surviving one-party Communist states, shaped like the letter “S” with 330,991 sq.km of land area and 1,000,000sq.km of seawater and there are nearly 4,000 small and large islands. Vietnam lies in the eastern part of the Indochina peninsula and shares borders with China to the north, Laos and Cambodia to the west and the East Sea and Pacific Ocean to the southeast.

Many years have passed since the end of the American war in Vietnam and yet this is often the first image that people still have of this small South East Asian country. But in reality Vietnam is a country of outstanding natural beauty, with many small peaceful villages. The people of Vietnam are gentle, smiling and welcoming to visitors with the richness of their origins evident in their daily life. Spirituality in Vietnam is a kaleidoscope of beliefs from Confucianism to Christianity, with a mixture of Buddhism, Taoism, Animism and Tam Giao (triple religion) thrown in for good measure. Some of the best beaches and most tranquil islands in South East Asia can be found along the coastline of Vietnam and because of the proximity of the whole country to the sea, delicious seafood is always on the menu. With its historic cities, beautiful scenery and friendly people, Vietnam will surely hold something of interest for you.
