VIETNAM ~ Map Indochina ~

.... Wonderful "cartoon" map card of three countries linked by the Mekong river... the land between China and India with influences of both... highlighting their most famous tourist attractions... although the term “Indochina” is still used to refer to these three countries, it’s nowadays more known as “Southeast Asia”, which also encompasses other countries in the area, such as Burma and Thailand... Vietnam territory has a shape of a narrow ‘S’ letter... located on the eastern edge of the peninsula  Indochina... the narrowest point of Vietnam is only 40.3 km wide.... with a great selection of lovely stamps... Thanks a lot Manh!【ツ】

Indochina, also called (until 1950) French Indochina are strictly described as being the countries of the former French colonies, which were Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Located in the Southeast Asia region, east of Thailand, and south of China.

 It became part of the French colonial empire in the late 19th century. The Japanese Empire conquered it in the Second World War, and other wars went on for decades tearing the region apart for a generation.

The term Indochina refers to the intermingling of Indian and Chinese influences in the culture of the region.
