Lang Co Bay's great potential

Located 70km south of Hue City and 30km north of Da Nang City, Lang Co was listed as one of the “World’s Most Beautiful Bays” on May 16, 2009 by Worldbays Club.

Seen from Hai Van Pass, Lang Co Bay is as beautiful as a charming painting with its blue and clear water, azure sky, ranges of mountains with tropical forests stretching to the seashore. Also, the Bay boasts 42.5km of gently slopped coastlines with 13km of white and silky sandy beach.

Lang Co – The primitive wonder of sea at the foot of Hai Van Pass.

Lang Co Sea is the habitat of 151 species of fish, 31 species of seabed creatures and many rare and precious species, such as lobster, mackerel, cuttle-fish, sea horses, butterfish, oysters, etc. Near the beach is Chan May Cape and Lang Co fishing village. Amidst the forests and the sea is the brackish water lagoon of Lap An, covering 1,500ha, which is abundant with crabs, sweet snails, snappers, oysters, mullets, mytilus smaragdinus, Rachycentron canadum, grouper, Siganus Guttatus, etc.

With such great tourism potential, Lang Co has developed many forms and services of tourism, such as convalescence centres, diving to behold ranges of corrals, ecotourism in the lagoon, mountain climbing, golf, tropical forest exploration, fishing, etc. Here tourists can swim in clear and blue sea water, enjoy various delicious seafood, visit Lang Co fishing village to behold the bustling scenery at the boat wharf, drink sweet coconut milk or go fishing on Lap An Lagoon at sunset  with Vietnam travel agency.

Within 70km from Lang Co, there are world cultural heritage sites which have been recognised by UNESCO, including the complex of Hue relics, Hoi An Ancient Town and My Son Sanctuary.

Many resorts were built along Lang Co beach.

Since Hai Van Tunnel that connects Hue and Da Nang was opened and the construction of Chan May deep-water port with 130m of wharfs was completed, Lang Co rises as a young city with its economic strength. It has Chan May deep-water port, Chan May-Lang Co Economic Zone and Chan May Urban Area. Thua Thien – Hue Province has invested 1,182 billion VND in 22 infrastructure projects, particularly in works for tourism and coastal environment protection. Chan May – Lang Co Economic Zone has 33 domestic and foreign investment projects with a total capital of 1.9 billion USD, including many resort and tourism projects.

Since 2000, Huong Giang Tourism Joint-Stock Company in Thua Thien – Hue Province, made a joint-venture to build the 4-star Lang Co Beach Resort covering 10ha which consists of villas with 200 rooms facing to the sea. The resort was designed in Hue’s architectural style with a harmonious architectural combination of imperial palaces, temples and pagodas, wooden houses and garden houses. All bedrooms, restaurants, swimming pools and tennis courts were built amidst a green space with small alleys edged with clusters of violet myrtle trees
