Experiencing Bac Lieu
 

The Mekong Delta’s Bac Lieu is a place to discover nature and study history.

Bac Lieu, a province in the southeast of the Mekong Delta by the East Sea, has many places of interest.

In Bac Lieu Town, Cong Tu Bac Lieu Hotel and Restaurant is a well-known tourist spot.

Managed by Bac Lieu Province’s Department of Trade and Tourism, the hotel and restaurant by the Bac Lieu River used to be the childhood house of Tran Trinh Huy (1900-1973).

Known as Ba Huy or “cong tu Bac Lieu,” he was the son of a mandarin regarded as the Mekong Delta’s richest person.

Although the French-style villa has been converted into a hotel and renovated many times, the original architecture remains.

Guests can experience the richness and lifestyle of Ba Huy’s family.

Apart from the Cong Tu Bac Lieu Hotel and Restaurant, tourists can spend their leisure time at the sea of Bac Lieu, about seven kilometers away.

The sea here does not have cliffs and white sands, like the seaside towns of Vung Tau, Nha Trang and Phan Thiet-Mui Ne, but it abounds in marine resources thanks to the silt from the Mekong River system.

Tourists can stroll on the beach and enjoy fresh seafood at the Huong Bien Restaurant.

Leaving the sea of Bac Lieu, tourists can visit the longan orchards about two kilometers away.

Bac Lieu longans are famous for their flavor though they don’t have as much flesh as longans of other regions.

In the longan gardens, visitors can relax in hammocks in the shade of longan trees and enjoy banh xeo Bac Lieu (Bac Lieu-style rice pancake with pork, shrimp, bean sprouts, green beans, vegetables and fish sauce) and longan wine.

Bac Lieu is about six hours from Ho Chi Minh City by car.

It is an ideal destination for discovering nature, studying history and relaxing.
