Vietnam Travel Guide
Vietnam can be divided into 5 regions - the northern mountainous terrain with elevations of up to 9840ft; the Red River Delta where the capital Hanoi is seated; the Annamite Mountain Range that connects North to South; the narrow coastal strip between the Annamites and the South China sea and the legendary Mekong Delta in the south. Due to intensive land clearance only 20% of the forest remains, which couple with poaching has plunge the once prolific wildlife into dangerous decline. Fortunately the government has set the wheels in motion to create 87 national parks and nature reserves in thousands of square miles of the remaining forest. Vietnam has two climatic zones - moderate in the north and tropical in the south.
