Vietnam

Vietnam is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula. With an estimated 94.6 million inhabitants as of 2016, it is the 15th most populous country in the world. Vietnam shares its land borders with China to the north, and Laos and Cambodia to the west. It shares its maritime borders with Thailand through the Gulf of Thailand, and the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia through the South China Sea. Its capital city is Hanoi, while its most populous city is Ho Chi Minh City.

Archaeological excavations indicate that Vietnam was inhabited as early as the Paleolithic age. Ancient Vietnamese nation was annexed by China in the 2nd century BC, which subsequently made Vietnam a division of China for over a millennium. The first independent monarchy emerged in the 10th century AD, paving the way for successive imperial dynasties as the nation expanded geographically southward until the Indochina Peninsula was colonised by the French in the mid-19th century. Modern Vietnam’s age was marked upon the declaration of independence from France in 1945. Following Vietnamese victory against the French in the First Indochina War, which ended in 1954, the nation was divided into two rival states: communist North and anti-communist South. Conflicts intensified in the Vietnam War, which saw extensive US intervention in support of South Vietnam and ended with North Vietnamese victory in 1975.

After North and South Vietnam were reunified under a unitary socialist government in 1976, the country became economically and politically isolated until 1986, when the Communist Party initiated a series of economic and political reforms that facilitated Vietnamese integration into the world politics and economy. Thanks to the successful reforms, Vietnam has enjoyed a high GDP growth rate, consistently ranked among the fastest-growing countries in the world, although it faces challenges of issues including poverty, corruption and inadequate social welfare. By 2010, Vietnam had established diplomatic relations with 178 countries. It is a member of the UN, ASEAN, APEC, WTO and the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF).

That only made the experience of exploring my homeland that much more special. There’s not many places that blow me away the way this place did. After this visit, I feel connected to Vietnam more than I ever have before and I already can’t wait to go back . . . . . #travel #vietnam #nature #explore #beautifuldestinations #travelphotography #waterfall #vietnam🇻🇳 ...

hคຖ໐i 🤗 What a contrast. It is just a regular major city at first sight with some modern buildings, busy streets, then you look around and might notice some malnourished chickens running around a brand new bmw, some run down slums, dirty shops right around the block from fancy boutiques. It's like a combination of village and city in one. Lots of tourists, interesting food (tasty, but they also eat cats and dogs 😿🤢), small and very low chairs and tables everywhere, so no disabled tourist would be able to sit and enjoy the meal. ⭕️What is the most unusual food you ate❓ For me it was probably just boiled snails since they don’t taste like escargot in French cuisine, to me they were too rubbery and I couldn’t eat too many of them (check story pictures - up for 24hours). .. and what about you guys❓ . В Ханое 🤗 Город с обычными зданиями и улицами, а также с бегающими курицами по улицам. Сочетание города среднего размера и деревни одновременно! Много туристов, интересная еда (вкусно, но они также едят кошек и собак 😿🤢), маленькие и очень низкие стулья и столы повсюду, поэтому ни один турист-инвалид не сможет сидеть и наслаждаться едой. ⭕️Какая самая необычная еда которую ты ел/а❓ Для меня это были просто вареные улитки, они не похожи на улитки во французской кухне, для меня они были слишком резиновые и я не могла съесть их слишком много (посмотрите на истории - будут стоять 24 часа). .. а как насчет вас⭕️ ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Turn on post notifications (click on 3 horizontal dots in the right upper corner here or on my profile) so you dont miss anything 😊 :::: Включите оповещения / уведомления постов (нажмите на 3 горизонтальные точки в правом верхнем углу и там найдёте) чтобы ничего не пропустить 😊 — #vietnam #hanoi #asia #model #swings #travel #traveler #traveling #travellingthroughtheworld #travelgram #travelawesome #travelholic #travelphotography #instatravel #traveltheworld #dress #путешествие #girl #model #beautiful #fashion #russian #traveltheworld #womantravel #style #fun #pretty #food #виетнам #азия #девушка ...

By the beautiful St. Joseph's Cathedral in Hanoj, Vietnam. Construction began in 1886, with the architectural style described as resembling Notre Dame de Paris. The church was one of the first structures built by the French colonial government in Indochina when it opened in December 1886. It is the oldest church in Hanoi. It was built on the site of Bao Thien Pagoda, a sacred Buddhist temple that served as an "administrative center" of Tonkin during the pre-French colonial era. Temple collapsed in 1542 and was never repaired. . У красивого собора Святого Иосифа в Ханое, Вьетнам. Строительство началось в 1886 году с архитектурным стилем напоминающий Собор Парижской Богоматери. Церковь была одной из первых структур построенных французским колониальным правительством в Индокитае, когда она открылась в декабре 1886 года. Это самая старая церковь в Ханое. Она была построена на месте пагоды Бао Тхиен, священного буддийского храма который служил «административным центром» Тонкина во время дофранцузской колониальной эпохи. Храм рухнул в 1542 году и так и не был отремонтирован. ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Turn on post notifications (click on 3 horizontal dots in the right upper corner here or on my profile) so you dont miss anything 😊 :::: Включите оповещения / уведомления постов (нажмите на 3 горизонтальные точки в правом верхнем углу и там найдёте) чтобы ничего не пропустить 😊 — #vietnam #hanoi #asia #church #wonderful_places #travel #traveler #traveling #travellingthroughtheworld #travelgram #travelawesome #travelholic #travelphotography #instatravel #traveltheworld #placesshare #путешествие #girl #model #beautiful #thewanderedworld #russian #traveltheworld #womantravel #girlstoptravel #girlstravelgroup #dametravel #damestravel #виетнам #азия #architecture ...
