La región más popular del sudeste asiático es el Delta del Mekong, región que engloba no sólo a Vietnam sino también a Camboya. El mayor rio de Vietnam, el Rio Mekong, crea durante su paso hasta el Mar de China esta increible región al sur de Vietnam que los Vietnamitas llamamos los 9 dragones, en referencia a los 9 puntos distintos donde el rio Mekong desemboca en el mar.

Vietnam, sometimes spelled Viet Nam (i/ˌviːɛtˈnɑːm/ vee-et-nahm; Vietnamese: Việt Nam, listen), officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnamese: Cộng hòa xã hội chủ nghĩa Việt Nam, listen), is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is bordered by China to the north, Laos to the northwest, Cambodia to the southwest, and the South China Sea – referred to in Vietnam as the East Sea (Vietnamese: Biển Đông) – to the east. With an estimated 90.5 million inhabitants as of 2011, Vietnam is the 13th-most-populous country in the world, and the eighth-most-populous Asian country.

 

The Vietnamese became independent from Imperial China in 938 AD, following the Battle of Bạch Đằng River. Successive Vietnamese royal dynasties flourished as the nation expanded geographically and politically into Southeast Asia, until the Indochina Peninsula was colonized by the French in the mid-19th century. Efforts to resist the French eventually led to their expulsion from the country in the mid-20th century, leaving Vietnam divided politically into two countries. Fighting between the two sides continued, with heavy foreign intervention, during the Vietnam War, ending with a North Vietnamese victory in 1975.

 

Emerging from this prolonged military engagement, the war-ravaged Communist nation was politically isolated. In 1986, the government instituted economic and political reforms and began a path towards international reintegration.[9] By 2000, it had established diplomatic relations with most nations. Its economic growth has been among the highest in the world since 2000,[10] and according to Citigroup, such high growth is set to continue. Vietnam has the highest Global Growth Generators Index among 11 major economies,[11] and its successful economic reforms resulted in it joining the World Trade Organization in 2007. However, the country still suffers from high levels of income inequality,[dated info] disparities in healthcare provision, and poor gender equality.

 

Esta preciosa ciudad, vive principalmente del turismo, hay muchísimo comercio sobre todo de telas y sastrería, pero una vez se hizo de noche, al otro lado del río había otro mercado, principalmente de farolillos de seda de colores, multitud de ellos, de distintos tamaños y colores, estaba realmente precioso con todos los faroles iluminados. Los precios de los faroles, bastante asequibles, además se pliegan con lo cual no es complicado traerlos. Otra cosa importante, principalmente los venden aquí, en Hoi An, luego es difícil encontrar tanta variedad.

The core of the bay has an area of 334 km2 with a high density of 775 islets.The limestone in this bay has gone through 500 million years of formation in different conditions and environments. The evolution of the karst in this bay has taken 20 million years under the impact of the tropical wet climate.The geo-diversity of the environment in the area has created biodiversity, including a tropical evergreen biosystem, oceanic and sea shore biosystem.Hạ Long Bay is home to 14 endemic floral species and 60 endemic faunal species.
