A Snapshot of Vietnam

Discovering a new country like Vietnam isn’t simple, given the huge amount of information available and the great diversity of topics to cover.

As a first step, it’s always good to begin by getting a broad overview on this beautiful land.

Where?

Ideally located in South-East Asia, Vietnam spreads on more than 330 000km², sharing borders with Cambodia, Laos and China. Shaped like a long “S”, extending over a 3 260kms coastline, it obviously has plenty of beautiful beaches.

One country, two capitals

Vietnam is a land of contrast, which is perfectly illustrated with its two main cities, Hanoi and Ho-Chi-Minh City.
The capital of Vietnam, and its second biggest city. Hanoi is also known as the cultural and political centre of Vietnam.
Also known as Saigon, Ho-Chi-Minh City is the biggest city in Vietnam, and considered as its economic capital.

Language

Vietnamese

The national and official language in Vietnam is obviously Vietnamese. But we also have more than 50 local languages, like Tay, Muong, Cham, etc.

English

As in most countries, English is also quite common in Vietnam. So no worries, you can easily come here without knowing Vietnamese.

French

With France's long presence in Vietnam years ago, there's no wonder French can also be spoken by some Vietnamese people, especially the elders.
