Tourism is an important part of that economy.
Despite the large coastline, much of the landmass is actually hilly, with large tropical forests making up around 40% of the land area, and mountains another 40%, with flat or mostly level areas making up only 20% of the country.
The climate varies from humid sub-tropical in the north to monsoon in the centre, and tropical savannah in the south. This is largely due to the extreme long, narrow shape of the country, covering a large range of latitudes.
Some of the most notable features of tourism in Vietnam include 31 national parks (perfect for hiking, walking, and boating, in many cases), 5 UNESCO World Heritage sites, eight world biosphere reserve zones teeming with animal and plant life, and 21 national tourist areas.
Jungle walks, cycling through the countryside, and boating through the water features of Vietnam are some of the most popular outdoor activities for holidaymakers.
More unusual options are available as well, including sandboarding in Mui Ne, canyoning in Dalat, spelunking in caves in Hoi An, or cliff diving in Nha Trang.
Mountain climbing is also popular, along with kayaking, kite surfing, and other water sports.
