Moving to Vietnam: About Vietnam
Full of vibrant colour, Vietnam and consists of beautiful landscape with stunning mountains, dramatic coastlines and glowing rice fields. Its economy was once mainly agricultural, based on wet rice growing, but the Vietnam War, 1955 - 1975 destroyed much of this. Today, hot on the heels of other Asian countries, Vietnam is one to look out for. It is one of the fastest growing economies in the world since 2000 and this high growth is set to continue; so a move to Vietnam can offer exciting opportunities.
Vietnam is an S-shaped country bordering Laos, Cambodia and The People's Republic of China. It has a population of around 86 million and spans an area of just over 128,000 miles so it is roughly about the size of Germany. The capital of Vietnam is Hanoi, a fascinating city with a Parisian feel and where ancient meets modern.
Tourism has risen in Vietnam over the last decade and the country played host to nearly four million international visitors in 2009. Attractions include the old imperial capital Hue, home to palaces, temples and pagodas, the World Heritage of Hoi An, the Marble Mountains, the Nha Trang coastline, the pristine beaches of Phu Quoc island, the caves and breath-taking beauty of Halong Bay, plus many others.
As tourism is on the rise, more projects are springing up for visitors, including the tourism complex in the south eastern province of Binh Doung, which boasts the largest man-made sea in South East Asia. There is also plenty to do on the shopping front and if fashion is your thing, Hoi An has up to 500 tailors working in the city who can make a gorgeous outfit for you to take home.
Most people in the city get around on bikes, scooters and motorcycles and you cannot fail to notice the roads teaming with motorbikes in the urban areas. The number of car drivers are on the rise, especially in the inner city areas and unfortunately road traffic accidents present a big problem as the number of vehicles increase.
Those who want to travel further afield generally use buses in Vietnam. There is a cross country rail service and plans are underway to have a high speed train service linking the capital to central Vinh and central Nha Trang to Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam. Vietnam also has seven main ports which are Da Nang, Hai Phong, Hong Gai, Nha Trang, Cam Ranh and Ho Chi Minh City and 17 airports for civilians. Out in the rural areas the network of rivers means people often use boats to get around.
The temperature varies greatly depending on where you are living in Vietnam. The mountains are cooler than the plains and the south is hotter than in the north. In some areas in the south, such as Mekong Delta the temperature will remain in the 20's (centigrade) throughout the year. In the mountains in the north the temperatures can drop as low as 5 degrees centigrade in December and be as high as 40 degrees centigrade in July and August.
Vietnamese is the official language of the country. English is taught as a second language and is compulsory in most of the schools. Some of the older people speak French as a second language which stems from when Vietnam was a French colony.
Most of the population are Buddhist (85 per cent) and just less than 10 per cent identify themselves as Christians.
Vietnam's thriving manufacturing and hi-tech industries have played a big role in the growth of the nation's economy. The country is a fairly new oil producing nation but is the third largest oil producer in south east Asia. However, there is still a significant gap between rich and poor in Vietnam.
