About Vietnam

Vietnam, officially known as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is located on the eastern Indochinese Peninsula. It shares its borders with China to the north, Laos to the northwest, and Cambodia to the southwest. On the country's east coast lies the South China Sea. With an estimated 97.8 million inhabitants, Vietnam is the 15th most populous country in the world. The capital city is Hanoi, but the largest city is Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon). The official language is Vietnamese, and the state promotes atheism, although it officially allows freedom of religion. Vietnam's terrain varies from highlands and dense woodlands in the north, to the rich, deltaic Mekong River in the south. Its economy has seen rapid growth since the 2000s, with agriculture, forestry, fishery, and manufacturing being its four main industries. Its culture, a complex blend of native customs and Chinese influences, is also characterized by French accents, a legacy of its colonial past. Vietnamese cuisine is famous worldwide, with dishes such as phở and bánh mì reflecting the country's cultural diversity and historical influences. From its fight for independence from colonial powers, its reunification after the devastating Vietnam War, to its recent economic success, Vietnam stands as a testament to resilience and rapid development in Southeast Asia.
