Where is Saigon


The Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Cong Hoa Xa Hoi Chu Nghia Viet Nam) can be geographically divided into three areas (see map of Vietnam). As an orientation for many Vietnam vacationers, Vietnam is surrounded by Thailand, the People's Republic of China, Cambodia and Laos. Despite its location by the sea, the Southeast Asian country is an extremely mountainous country, because almost three quarters of the total area is characterized by mountain ranges and plateaus. Since Vietnam lives from its agriculture, only about 20% of the population can be found in the plateaus and on mountain ranges. The remaining 80% live in the plains that make up a third of the total land area.

With around 86 million inhabitants (2009), Vietnam's population is comparatively as large as that of the Federal Republic of Germany. The three sub-areas differ not only in their climatic location, but also in the popularity of foreign holidaymakers as travel destinations. While the north of Vietnam is better known as city trips and cultural trips, the middle of the country is characterized by the numerous beautiful beaches and historical places, the south in turn functions as the economic center of the country and is considered a must-see destination for many Vietnam vacationers.
