About Indochina

Indochina_mapIndochina or Indo-China is a peninsula in Southeast Asia lying roughly southwest of China and east of India. The name has its origins in the French Indochine as a combination of the names of “India” and “China”, referring to the location of the territory between those two countries, though the majority of people in the region are neither Chinese nor Indian. It is also referred to as Mainland Southeast Asia.

The countries of mainland Southeast Asia received cultural influence from both India and China to varying degrees. Some cultures, such as those of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand are influenced mainly by India with a smaller influence from China. Others, such as Vietnam, are more heavily influenced by Chinese culture with only minor cultural influences from India.
