Vietnam is a country located in Southeast Asia, bordered by China to the north, Laos and Cambodia to the west, and the South China Sea to the east and south. The country has a population of around 98 million people and its capital is Hanoi.

The official language of Vietnam is Vietnamese. English is also spoken in urban areas and tourist destinations. The currency is the Vietnamese dong (VND). As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, the exchange rate was approximately 1 USD to 23,000 VND.

The flight time from the UK to Vietnam varies depending on the airport of departure and the airline, but it usually takes around 12-14 hours with one or more stopovers.

Vietnam is seven hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+7). This means that when it is 12:00 pm (noon) in the UK, it is 7:00 pm in Vietnam.

The main airport in Vietnam is the Noi Bai International Airport (HAN), located in Hanoi. Its address is Phú Minh, Sóc Sơn, Hà Nội, Vietnam. The airport is located around 30 kilometers from the center of Hanoi and serves as the main gateway to the country. The airport is served by several airlines, including Vietnam Airlines, AirAsia, and Emirates.
