Vietnam Coastline – Along the Shores
Vietnam occupies about 331,211.6 square kilometers of land, the eastern and southern part of the Indo-Chinese Peninsula in Southeast Asia, as the South China Sea runs along its coast. Vietnam enjoys a place on the world map like no other, possessing land ranging from the low altitude golden beaches to cold thick rain forests.
Vietnam is a country of hills, dense forest highlands and tropical forests, with only 20% of the area being leveled. The annual rainfall rate varies along the area from 120 – 200 centimeters, which is substantial for sea-level areas.
It has the tropical monsoon climate and enjoys a prime geographical location, although because of the difference of altitude temperatures vary accordingly. The country is divided into the Red River Delta and the highlands in the north, the coastal lowlands and the Mekong River Delta in the south.
The people of Vietnam come from the lineages of Mongols from china and migrants from Indonesia. The Vietnam coastline is 2000 lines long. The coastline has a scenic beauty filled with white sandy beaches and compelling sunsets.
Apart from that, coves, lagoons, tropical islands and massive boulder formations are not a rare sight for the Vietnamese. It makes me envy them because I can imagine how easy it would be for them to a tan and how beautiful their mornings must be waking up the sun rising at the far end of the watery shore.
The Best of the Beaches
Vietnam Coastline: Nha Trang
In the province of Khanh Hoa, Nha Trang is the busiest beach known for its never ending days of sunshine. Many water adventure sports have made permanent home here and continue to attract tourists from around the world. The facilities of beach resorts and hotels with private beaches are also largely available and you can also hire a beach bungalow for your stay. I guess I know where I am headed on my next trip!
Vietnam Coastline: Danang
During the Vietnam War, Danang Beach served as the central fighting area. It is also well-known for its beautiful beaches that offer tourists the opportunity for Scuba Diving, Snorkeling or indulging in many other water sports. Coconut palms and natural pines are the perfect backdrop for the white and golden beaches of Vietnam.
Vietnam Coastline: Doc Let
Only 30 miles away from the Nha Trang, Doc Let is the beach paradise of your dreams. Many resorts have comfortable bungalows along the beaches with complete meals provided at booking so that the tourists can enjoy the unique peace and quiet of the Doc Let Beaches without hindrance. Doc Let is the popular choice for renegade travelers.
Vietnam Coastline: Phu Quoc Island
Made of national forest land, sandy beaches and pepper plantations, Phu Quoc is a standard tourist spot that offers a unique experience. Because of less development, the island’s natural beauty is still very much intact with dirt roads, limited services and quiet shores. This proves to be a very inviting feature of this place, although there are still some great resorts lined up along the Long Beach that offer decent and comfortable services.
Vietnam has come a very long way from our recent history. It is very common now for westerners to not only visit the beautiful country, but also be assigned there for work on contract (usually banks) for a certain period of time.
The beauty is easily seen from the Vietnam Coastline.
All along the streets you can see westerners enjoying there visits and I’d certainly recommend Vietnam a place to go!
