Welcome to Lang Son

The area is populated largely by Tho, Nung, Man and Dzao tribal people, though their influence is not evident in the city. Lang Son was partially destroyed in February 1979 by Chinese forces, and the ruins of the town and the devastated frontier village of Dong Dang were shown to foreign journalists as evidence of Chinese aggression. Although the border is still heavily fortified, both towns have been rebuilt and Sino–Vietnamese trade is in full swing again.
