Living in Vietnam

Vietnam is the easternmost country in South-East Asia, bordering Cambodia, Laos, and China. Its long and narrow shape means that it benefits from a long coastline, which means fresh sea breezes, seafood and beautiful beaches such as Ha Long Bay. The North of the country experiences cool winters, while the South has a warm temperature all year round. Road, rail and air links make it a good starting point from which to explore the rest of South-East Asia.
