Vietnam is one of the most well-known nations of south east Asia, thanks in the main to the Vietnam War (1955-75). The main spine French Indo-China, two of its bordering neighbours, Laos (2,130km) and Cambodia (1,228km) also comprised the colony, which declared independence after WWII. Its only other neighbour is China (1,281km) to the north. Its population of 90 million makes Vietnam the 15th most populous nation in the world.
I really like your site and the information you provide but there are some inaccuracies here...
86,116,560 [Closer to 88 million today, you are 1-2 years out of date]
GDP PER CAPITA:
$723.88 per capita [Closer to $1000 today, again 1-2 years out of date]
CAPITAL WITH POPULATION:
Hanoi - 3,083,800
LARGEST CITY WITH POPULATION:
Hanoi - 3,083,800 [WRONG. Ho Chi Minh City with 8+ million people depending on which stats you use. Hanoi is less than half the size of HCMC so this is just incorrect.]
Still like the site, but this page needs a bit of work and updating...
