Tourist Attractions

Nhi Thanh Grotto

Nhi Thanh is one of the most beautiful grottoes in Lang Son Province. It is located in Nhi Thanh Street, approximately 1km from the city centre. 
Nhi Thanh Grotto is 500 metres long. On the cliffs at the entrance are 20 inscriptions that are precious historical and literary documents, including autographs of famous scholars. The statue of scholar Ngo Thi Sy on the cliff engraved in 1779 is a precious work of art. The grotto has numerous stalactites and stalagmites in different shapes. Above the grotto is Tam Giao Pagoda built in 1779. The pagoda is dedicated to Buddha, Confucian and Laotze. 
Tam Giao Pagoda and Nhi Thanh Grotto is one of the eight sites that attract a large number of visitors in Lang Son.

Tam Thanh Grotto

Situated in Tam Thanh Ward, Lang Son City, the Tam Thanh Grotto is one of the famous grottoes in Lang Son. The door of Tam Thanh Grotto is approximately 8m high, opening to a corridor of 30 stone steps shaped into the mountain. There are dense groves hiding the grotto from the sun. Poet Ngo Thi Sy (1726-1780) carved one of his texts on the grotto wall while he was a Mandarin guard in Lang Son (1777). The poem praises the magnificent natural beauty of the area, the graceful babbling sound of the water stream falling on hundreds of rocks. Here, you can explore the grotto with marvellous stalactites and a statue of Buddha. Vong Phu Mountain is located nearby.

To Thi Mountain (or Vong Phu Mountain)

Located in the complex sites of Tam Thanh, Nhi Thanh grottoes is the Vong Phu Mountain meaning "waiting for a husband". In the remote horizon, there is a stone on top of the mountain that evokes a woman holding a child in her arms. Since ancient times, this stone has been connected to a tale about To Thi, who faithfully awaited the return of her husband who had joined the fight in the North. To Thi and her child waited for so long that they turned into stone.Throughout the years, from natural and human influence, the rock has been heavily damaged. However, the province of Lang Son has had a copy of To Thi built in order to retain this cherished relic.

Ky, Lua Market

This market, in the centre of the city of Lang Son, has been open for hundreds of years as a busy trading centre for local people and vis- itors from foreign lands. It is a point of cultural convergence for many ethnic minority groups. On fair days, young people from the Tay, Nung, and Dao ethnic groups eagerly flock to the market to sell and buy goods, to make friends and to share their passion and love for each other. 
Well known to many generations of Vietnamese people, the Ky Lua Market also attracts visitors who come to buy souvenirs from their journey.

Mau Son Mountain

Mau Son Mountain, located in Mau Son Commune, Loc Binh District, east of the Northern province border, is 1,541m above sea level and surrounded by thousands of mountains running into the horizon. This area is wonderful for hiking. From the main road that wind, like a snake, cars can reach the summit of the mountain. The delicious peaches and pears grown in this area are renowned throughout the country. Scattered on the slopes are Dao ethnic hamlets, where traditional lifestyle continues to exist. Especially, there is perhaps ice and snow covering the peak of Mau Son Mountain in the end of December or January.
To get to Mau Son Mountain from the centre of Lang Son City, go along Route 4B for about 14km, and then turn left 15km.

Bac Le Temple

The temple is located in Tan Thanh Commune, Huu Lung District. It is dedicated to the Goddess of Forest, one of the three goddesses worshipped in the belief of Holy Mother in Viet Nam. 
The temple lies on a high hill and under the foliage of old trees. The main part of the temple includes front and back halls. On the roof of the front hall is a statue of two dragons flanking a moon, which symbolizes heaven and the earth. Ceremonial hall consists of six rooms. In the main room, there stand the altar of the three goddesses in the centre, and the altars of General Tran Hung Dao and Son Trang on the two sides. Other rooms are dedicated to Jade Emperor, Hoang Muoi, and Hoang Bay. 
The temple was restored twice in 1922 and 1933. It attracts a large number of pilgrims every year.

Chi Lang Defile
