Vietnam is a Southeast Asian nation on the South China Sea known for its shorelines, waterways, Buddhist pagodas and clamoring urban areas. Hanoi, the capital, pays reverence to the country's famous Communist-period pioneer, Ho Chi Minh, by means of a tremendous marble sepulcher. Ho Chi Minh City (once in the past Saigon) has French pilgrim tourist spots, in addition to Vietnamese War history galleries and the Củ Chi burrows, utilized by Viet Cong troopers.
