Map of Vietnam

A few Wikipedians have gotten together to make some suggestions about how we might organize data in articles about Vietnam. These are only suggestions, things to give you focus and to get you going, and you shouldn't feel obligated in the least to follow them. But if you don't know what to write or where to begin, following the below guidelines may be helpful. Mainly, we just want you to write articles!

Divisions Scope[edit]

This WikiProject covers the creation and editing of articles related to the nation of Vietnam, its political subdivisions, geography, transportation, culture, history, people, and so on. It aims at expanding Wikipedia's resources on Vietnam in a fair, neutral, and accurate manner. Articles currently covered by this project can be found here.

The original WikiProject Vietnamese provinces' scope was:

This is an attempt to create a WikiProject for Provinces of Vietnam. At the point of the project's creation, there is only one page on a Vietnamese province, which served as a prototype. It would be nice if the remainder of the pages could be created along similar lines. Hence, this project. If you'd like to participate, don't hesitate to join in — there are plenty of provinces to do.

Our intent is to expand and build upon that.
