Cover - Vietnam, Country #53

My first cover from Vietnam. Thanks Trieu. This one's got stamps on the back too. The stamps on the front are  a complete set of definitives. Issued on the 16th of January 2012, this definitive stampset “Architectures, landscapes of Việt Nam” consists of 6 values with denominations of 2,000 d; 3,000 d; 3,500 d; 4,500 d; 6,500 d and 10,500 d. All the 6 stamps are on this cover.

2000d One-Pillar pagoda (Ba Dinh, Ha Noi)
3000d One-Pillar pagoda (Ba Dinh, Ha Noi)
3500d Keo pagoda (Vu Thu, Thai Binh)
4500d Keo pagoda (Vu Thu, Thai Binh)
6500d Bridge pagoda (Hoi An, Quang Nam)
10500d Bridge pagoda (Hoi An, Quang Nam)

The two stamps on the back are from the dragonflies set of 4 issued in 2011.

2500d Dragonfly (Trithemis aurora)
10500d Dragonfly (Ictinogomphus decoratus)

The total postage on the cover is 43500 Vietnamese dong which is equivalent to about 105 Indian rupees. This cover was sent by registered post so its comparable with the kind of postage one would pay in India for a cover of the same weight.
