    Lang Son province, 180 kilometers from Hanoi, has huge tourism potential: historical relics, scenic spots, temples, and pagodas. The cultural diversity of ethnic minorities adds another attraction to Lang Son province, which is beautiful all year round. 

    Tan Thanh border gate and Dong Kinh market are shopping heavens. Scenic spots include Nhi Thanh cave, Ky Cung stone wharf, the Tien cave, pagoda, and well complex, and the Mau Son tourism area. Historical relics include a 16th century citadel of the Mac Dynasty and Chi Lang pass – the site of several great victories against northern invaders.

    Mau Son is a popular spot on Lang Son’s tourism map, as it is cool and pleasant in summer and sometimes covered in snow in winter, a rare climate in tropical Vietnam.

    Another noteworthy destination is the Dong Dang Temple of the Mother Goddess, built to worship Buddha and Mother Goddess Ban Thien. It hosts a big spring festival on the 10th day of the first lunar month.

    Bac Le temple worships Thuong Ngan, the Mother Goddess of Mountains and Forests. It’s one of the three holy monasteries that worship the Mother Goddesses of the three Realms. A Bac Le temple festival is held on the 20th day of the 9th lunar month.

    There are many temples in Lang Son province, including Tam Thanh, Thanh, and Tan Thanh, impressive for its architecture, statues, and historical interest.

    Traditional handicraft villages are another highlight of Lang Son tourism, which offer tourists with hands-on experience. Wine making in Mau Son, Nung ethnic brocades, yin-yan baked clay tiles in Quynh Son, incense in Gia Cat, and rice cakes in Van Linh are some of the most famous crafts.

    Its beautiful scenery and religious and cultural richness should put Lang Son on your travel bucket list.
