Vietnam is a long, thin country in Southeast Asia. It is slightly lean on the South China Sea known for its beaches, rivers, Buddhist pagodas and bustling cities. Its neighboring countries are China to the north, Laos and Cambodia to the west. Hanoi, the capital, pays homage to the nation’s iconic Communist-era leader, Ho Chi Minh, via a huge marble mausoleum. Ho Chi Minh City has French colonial landmarks, plus Vietnamese War history museums and the Củ Chi tunnels, used by Viet Cong soldiers.
