Located 50km north of Hanoi, Bac Giang province is considered to be well-suited to develop tourism, especially due to its good transport connections, including road, railway and waterway infrastructure.

Bac Giang province boasts a wealth of historical and cultural tradition with around 2,230 relic sites, including Vinh Nghiem pagoda where Truc Lam, the Zen Buddhist sect, was founded by King Tran Nhan Tong in the 13th century. The pagoda in Yen Dung district now preserves more than 3,000 woodblocks, which were recognised as a world heritage.

Quan Ho (love duet singing) and Ca Tru (ceremonial signing) singing were recognised as intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO.

In addition to its 500 traditional festivals held every year, the province preserves a number of ethnic minority cultural practices, such as the San Chi, the Cao Lan, the Nung, and the Tay.

Bac Giang is also renowned for its traditional craft villages along the north bank of the Cau River, such as Tho Ha ceramics, Van wine making and local specialities.

Apart from its geographic advantage located in the midst of the country’s major economic development-tourism centres such as Hanoi, Hai Phong, Quang Ninh, Lang Son and Thai Nguyen, Bac Giang is endowed with beautiful landscapes, like the Suoi Mo eco-tourism site, Khuon Than and Cam Son lakes, West Yen Tu nature reserve, and the Khe Ro primary forest with its diverse flora and fauna.
