GEOGRAPHY
Total area: 329,560
Population: Approximately 81 million 

Vietnam is an S shaped country that lies in South East Asia, facing the South China Sea. Vietnam is bordered to the north by China and to the east by both Cambodia and Laos. Vietnam boasts more then 3,400 kilometers of coastline and that doesnt include its islands. This, and with its central location to other popular destinations in Asia and Oceania, gives Vietnam a great potential for tourism.
 
Vietnams topography is quite diverse. The country, although located entirely in the tropics, has mountain ranges, rivers, deltas, forests, and coastal zones, providing a vast array of terrain and activity for any traveler.

CLIMATE
Vietnam is located in both tropical and temperate zones. It is characterized by strong monsoon influences, but has a considerable amount of sun, a high rate of rainfall, and high humidity.  Regions located near the tropics and in the mountainous regions are endowed with a temperate climate.

The annual average temperature ranges from 22C to 27C. (71.6F to 80.6F). There are two distinguishable seasons. The cool season occurs from November to April and the hot season from May to October. The difference in temperature between the two seasons in southern Vietnam is almost unnoticeable, averaging 3C. The most noticeable variations are found in the northern provinces where differences of 12C have been observed. There are essentially four distinct seasons, which are most evident in the northern provinces.
