Vietnam Profile

Full Name: The Socialist Republic of Viet Nam

Capital: The capital of Vietnam is Hanoi, the second largest city in the country after Ho Chi Minh City.

Language: Vietnamese is the official language, with English being spoken by the majority of   service industry personnel.

Population: As of 2023, the population of Vietnam is 99.58 million, with the Kinh ethnic group accounting for 86% of the total.

Religion: Vietnam has not been a particularly religious country in its history. Approximately 73.3% of the population belongs to atheist or folk beliefs, and some others believe in Buddhism or Catholicism.

Geography: Located in the east part of Indochina Peninsula, Vietnam borders China in the north, Laos and Cambodia in the west, and faces the South China Sea in the east and south.

Best time to visit: Vietnam has a narrow but long territory from north to south, resulting in distinct differences in climate. The north experiences four distinct seasons, while the south only has a dry season from October to April, and rainy season from May to September. Therefore, November to February is the best time for a visit.

Top destinations for your Vietnam tours:
1. Halong Bay: most famous coastal attraction in Vietnam, often described as a “natural wander”  
2. Da Nang: an important historical city with many cultural relics, seaside resorts and beaches
3. Ho Chi Minh City: a modern metropolis but still maintains its traditional features
4. Hoi An: most famous for its colorful lanterns
5. Nha Trang: a destination with some of the best beaches for a relaxing holiday
