Thank you and any of your answers are appreciated

Answer
The Mekong River and its massive delta which covers much of southern Vietnam and Cambodia.  This allows for a great deal of rice cultivation and food production.  Further to the north in the hills one finds differernt kinds of agricultural activities and orchards of mangos, and other fruits.  Some coffee is grown in this region.  Then to the northwest are the mountians that are the foothills of the tibetian pleateau.  Along the coast are deep harbors that are a key to the economic success of Vietnam.  Off the coast are huge fisheries and the wetlands of the delta are a key resource for young fish that then migrate to the ocean.
