Abstract

Vietnam forms the eastern margin of Indo-China, covering some 330,000 km 2.Its continental shelf extends into both the South China Sea and the southern part of the Gulf of Thailand. The land is dominated by two rivers systems: the Red River in the north; and the Mekong in the south, which are separated by a coastal strip, some 50_150 km wide. The Annamese Mountains run parallel with the coast, rising to 3,100 m, and are fl anked by high plateaux. The people, now numbering 89 million, are of mixed Indo-Chinese origins with a long history.
