Vietnam National Administration of Tourism

Aug 18, 2007
Lying on the eastern part of the Indochinese peninsula, Vietnam is a strip of land shaped like the letter S. China borders it to the north, Laos and Cambodia to the west, the East Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the east and south.

The countries total length from north to south is 1,650km. Its width, stretching from east to west, is 600km at the widest point in the north, 400km in the south, and 50km at the narrowest part, in the centre, in Quang Binh Province. The coastline is 3,260km long and the inland border is 4,510km.

The Government has given the green light to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism plan to air tourism advertisement spots on the Cable News Network

Most visitors to Vietnam get overwhelmed by the sublime beauty of its natural settings. The Red River Delta in the north, the Mekong Delta in the south. Stretched down from misty mountains to the delta on Chinese border, Vietnam is one of the most beautiful South East Asian countries. Its entire coastal strip seems to be a patchwork of brilliant green rice paddies cultivated by women wearing attractive conical hats.

The divine beaches of Vietnam along the coast, soaring mountains, cloaked by dense, misty forests make your holiday in the arms of nature really enjoyable and memorable. Despite ongoing economic liberalisation and its pressures, the dignified country of Vietnam has preserved its rich civilisation and highly cultured society, magnificently.
You will surely find out that it has overcome its post war fatigues and is now welcoming boom in budget travelling, coupled with the softening of government control.

When one region is wet, cold or steamy hot, some other is pleasant. The north becomes chilly from November to April and hot from May to October. There is the possibility of typhoons between July and November, affecting the north and central areas. South remains wet from May to November and wettest from June to August, while from December to April, it becomes dry. The hottest and most humid time is from the end of February to May. The central coast is dry from May to October and wet from December to February.

Travellers should plan their trip according to the Tet New Year festival, which falls in late January or early February. Though travel becomes difficult this time and hotels get full, the festival has its own charm.

Ho Chi Minh City is the very heart and soul of Vietnam. Being the largest city in the country, it is bustling, dynamic and industrious centre of the country, and also the economic capital and the cultural trendsetter. Travelling down to Ho Chi Minh, you may observe that within the teeming metropolis, the timeless traditions and beauty of an ancient culture are well preserved.

The city offers you several excellent tourist spots as museums, Botanical gardens, temples, pagodas and churches.

Hanoi is one of the most attractive cities, which charms the tourists with its attractive green boulevards and parks. It has shaken off its old hostile attitude and welcomes the travellers with new spirit. It is the most beguiling and slow paced cities in Asia, proving your visit excellent. It is pleasant, with a lovely landscape of lakes, shaded boulevards, verdant public parks, colonial French houses and astounding modern skyscrapers.
