Vietnam is a Southeast Asian country bordered by China, Laos, Cambodia, and the South China Sea. The capital of Vietnam is Hanoi, and the largest city is Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon).

Vietnam boasts a rich history and culture that spans millennia. It has been ruled by various peoples and powers, including China, France, and Japan. In the 20th century, Vietnam was a battleground during the Vietnam War, where it fought against the USA and its allies. The war concluded in 1975 with Vietnam's victory and the reunification of North and South Vietnam.

In recent years, Vietnam's economy has experienced significant growth, earning it the designation as one of the "Tiger economies" in Asia. Key economic sectors include textiles, electronics, agriculture, and tourism.

Vietnamese cuisine is globally renowned and beloved, recognized for its fresh herbs, spices, and sauces. Some of the most famous dishes include Pho (noodle soup), Banh Mi (a sandwich), and Banh Xeo (a type of pancake).

Vietnam is blessed with a diverse natural environment featuring stunning landscapes, including the iconic Halong Bay and the Mekong Delta region. The country also hosts a rich array of wildlife, including the Asian elephant, Sunda gharial, pangolin, and Delacour's langur.
