Vietnam is a one-party Communist state known for its Buddhist pagodas, rivers, beaches, and bustling cities. Besides being a Southeast Asian country, Vietnam is a famous visiting place due to its diverse culture, ancient history, and quintessential natural landscapes. The country’s capital, Hanoi, pays homage to Ho Chi Minh, the nation’s iconic Communist-era leader, via a huge marble mausoleum. From one of the poorest countries in the world, Vietnam is now a middle-income country by the end of 2013.
