Vietnam is one of the easternmost countries in Southeast Asia, bordering China, Laos and Cambodia, just as the South China Sea stretches along the country's east coast. Vietnam seceded from China as far back as the year 938.
In the 19th century, Vietnam, along with the Indochina Peninsula, was colonized by France. A great effort was made to get out of the French colonization for many years. This led to the country being divided politically into two countries - North and South Vietnam. And as you know, this resulted in the long Vietnam War, which ended with a North Vietnamese victory in 1975. Today there live approx. 90.5 mill. people in the country.
