Tunkin

Tunkin, auch Nord-Anam genannt, bildet zugleich mit Cochinchina (s. d.) das Kaiserthum Anam, grenzt daher südlich von Cochinchina, nördlich an China, und ist ein außerordentlich fruchtbares Land, dessen Felder doppelte, bisweilen dreifache Ernten geben. Reich bewässert liefert es Reis, Zucker, Zimmt, Baumwolle, Ananas etc. im Ueberflusse. Die hiesigen Schwalbennester kamen unter dem Namen indianische Vogelnester als Leckerbissen auf die Tafeln der Reichen. Die Hauptstadt ist Cecho, von andern auch Backing genannt. Die Einwohner haben gleiche Natur und Sitten mit denen in Cochinchina (s. d.).
