Cao Bang Tourism Expands Its Horizons

The northern mountainous province of Cao Bang is taking significant steps to develop its tourism sector and welcome more local and foreign visitors. Home to spectacular natural scenery and unique cultural attractions, Cao Bang possesses tremendous potential to promote community-based eco-tourism and cultural heritage preservation. Recognizing this untapped potential, provincial authorities have initiated an ambitious long-term strategy to diversify Cao Bang's tourism offerings and strengthen related infrastructure. If successful, this strategic focus on tourism development promises to generate jobs, stimulate economic growth, and improve livelihoods across the region.

Cao Bang borders China and is located approximately 400km from Hanoi. The terrain is comprised primarily of karst formations and mountain ranges with elevations up to 1,900 meters above sea level. Notable geographic features include the scenic Bao Lac Lake and limestone mountains dotted with caves and grottoes. Historically, the area was an important center of both the Dong Son and Tay Son cultures prior to the 20th century. Ethnic minority communities accounting for over 50% of the province's population still practice unique cultural traditions, customs, crafts, and architecture.


Tourism leaders in Cao Bang aim to leverage these distinctive natural and cultural attractions to diversify domestic and global tourism markets. Specific initiatives include upgrading infrastructure like roads, trails, and cultural sites. Promotional campaigns are highlighting lesser-known destinations within the province like the rural town of Nguyen Binh and mountain ranges near Ha Quang district. Homestays and community-based accommodations are also being developed in partnership with ethnic minority villages. These accommodations will allow visitors to experience immersive cultural programs featuring craft demonstrations, food, and performances.

Another strategic focus is expanding ecotourism through improved access to protected natural areas. Trekking, camping, and kayaking are being introduced in scenic locations near pristine waterfalls and mountainous rainforests. Investments are doubling walking trails, viewpoints, and recreational facilities over the next five years. Strict environmental protections ensure the ecological integrity of these destinations for sustainable tourism. Tour operators are working closely with relevant government ministries to obtain necessary permits and ensure activities align with conservation goals.
