Ha Giang Province
Cao Bang Province forms its western side. Tuyen Quang, and Yen Bai Provinces are to the south, and Lao Cai Province is on the southwest. National Highway 2 links it to Hanoi, through Viet Tri and Tuyen Quang Provinces.
The province is known for agriculture, not just for the common rice crop but especially for high-quality Shan Tuyet green tea. With this improvement in the economy, all children are now going to school. Its museum and heirloom collections are noted for a collection of bronze drums, indicating an earlier metalworking culture than had been assumed.
