Ha Tinh is located in North Central Vietnam between Nghe An and Quang Binh provinces and shares a border with Laos. The main ethnic group to live in this area is the Kinh, along with a small percentage of Chut.
Ha Tinh is influenced by the tropical monsoon climate: the cold rainy season from November to April and the dry hot season from May to October.
Famous sites include Vu Mon Waterfall, Vu Quang Forest in Huong Khe, Ke Go Lake, Son Kim Springs, and Ngang Pass. Several nice beaches are located along the 137 km coast.
Villages have erected many temples, pagodas, and shrines such as Huong Tich Pagoda, Tam Lang Temple, and Cua Dieu Stupa.
The harmonious combination of the traditional and intellectual cultures creates a sound atmosphere that is appealing to visitors.
On National Highway 1 it is 340km from Hanoi to Ha Tinh, the capital of the province of the same name.
