Cao Bang

Cao Bang Province is located in the Far North  East, shares borders with China on the north and east, Bac Kan and Lang Son provinces on the south, and Ha Giang and Tuyen Quang provinces on the west. The topography is complicated so inter-transportation is limited.

Cao Bang has temperate climate. There are 4 seasons: spring, summer, autumn, winter. The average temperature is 25 - 28 degree Cencius  in summer and 16  to 17 degree C in winter. Snow sometimes falls in winter on high mountains such as Trung Khanh, Tra Linh.

The cool weather combines with many high mountains, beautiful sightseeings to form the convenient for relaxing tour and discovery tour. Famous sites include Thang Hen Mountainous Lake in Tra Linh, Ban Gioc Fall and Nguom Ngao Cave in Trung Khanh. Among of them, Ban Gioc Fall probably is one of most beautiful waterfall in Vietnam. Several sites where Uncle Ho lived and worked before the August 1945 Revolution include Pac Bo, Coc Bo Cave, Lenin Stream, and Khuoi Nam Stream. In Cao Bang, the traditional festivals have specific characteristics of ethnic groups, for example, Long Tong Festival, Inviting?the-Moon-Mother Festival (Moi Me Trang).

Many ethnic groups live together here. It creates plentiful traditional culture. Tay group makes up a large amount of population. They have own handwriting (Tay-Nung language group). The Tay?s special culture is showed in village festival, vi and then singing.


Getting there and around.

Cao Bang is 272km north of Hanoi following National Highway No.3. Cao Bang has National Highway No.4B and 3 linking to Lang Son, Bac Kan, Ha Giang provinces and to China. There are direct buses from Hanoi ( take 10 hours), Thai Nguyen and Lang Son ( take 5 hours) to the Cao Bang bus station in Kim Dong str.


4 WD is recommended for tours around this area as the road condition is not good at all the way. Or to reach to the falls, you can walk or hire a Xe Om ( Motorbike taxi) to take you.


Ethnic minorities  in Cao Bang are most Mongtagnard people, then Tay, Hmong , D’zao and Lolo  and there’re some markets there where we can visit and relise which minority they are via their dresses.

People here are trust and friendly. You can buy anything at the market with the same price with local people there, no need to bargain.


It seems there’s only one good restaurant here;


Nha Hang Thanh Truc in Cao Bang town or you can have meals at the hotels or guest houses here.

For walking tour around Cao Bang, we must prepare for picnic lunch in advanced as no restaurants or hotels in Ban Gioc waterfall as well as around there.
