The provincial capital of Lang Son is Lang Son City, 160km from Hanoi, 130km from Cao Bang.

Lang Son is by far only a stop-over for travellers on a journey to or back from Cao Bang and Bac Kan Provinces, while the province and the city itself deserves more time. Lang Son Province is a mountainous region and inhabited by a number of ethnic minorities including the Tay, Nung, San Diu, Hoa...which has huge potential for adventure tours, trekking tours with homestay.

Lang Son also has the mountains of Huu Lung, Chi Lang, Na Sam, That Khe...which are historical sites and which are great for motorbike adventure tours.

The city of Lang Son is a scenic one. Though it's a huge commercial hub between Vietnam and China, Lang Son City still has the tranquility and freshness that not many cities in Vietnam have. There are the Nhi Thanh and Tam Thanh Caves in town and the To Thi Mountain with walls of the former Mac Citadel (16th century). You could easily spend the whole day touring the caves and to have rock climbing or mountain climbing on the To Thi Mountains. From the peak of the mountain, you will be charmed by the panoramic picture of the city surrounded by green mountains.

Recently, there are few new 3* and 4* hotels which may make your stay here more of a luxury experience. Still, fine-dining and street-dining in Lang Son are among the poorest in Vietnam with food mainly ranging from meat to oily food. Hopefully, with more tourists spending more time in Lang Son City, the restaurants in town would offer better dining experiences.
