Bac Lieu, located in the southernmost region of Vietnam, enjoys all the blessings of nature- a long coastline, interlacing rivers, dense forests, a copious monsoon, and plenty of sunshine. Few people know that Bac Lieu is one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations thanks to its unmatched natural beauty which is typical for the Mekong Delta.
On the west, the province is hugged by a spectacular 56-kilometer coastline. The first thing that captures the visitor's senses is far-flung salt flats. It would be as dream-like as Cam Ranh's salt fields looked down from flights' windows. Except for salt-making, weaving fishing nets, making fish sauce, and soy sauce are other extra crafts.
What makes Bac Lieu stand from other provinces in the Mekong Delta is probably the one-of-a-kind traditional music folks "Don ca tai tu", which is often sung on occasion of festivals and wedding ceremonies. It is also well known by long-lasting songs in the very heart of each Ben Tre inhabitant such as " Da Co Hoai Lang", composed by Cao Van Lau musician, talking about a Ben Tre upper-class dandy who burnt money to get boiled eggs. What an interesting story!
Bac Lieu forest is also worth a stop on your way where it is home to more than 104 species of plants consisting of some 'Red Book'-listed endangered birds.
Travelers visiting Bac Lieu are not just drawn by its lush natural beauty, but also fall in love with the locals' kind-hearted characteristics. They are always ready to give you a perfect local treat as you stroll here.
