Thua Thien-Hue to host Lang Co – World Beautiful Bay Festival 2014

The annual Lang Co – World Beautiful Bay Festival 2014 celebrating the fifth year of Lang Co Bay's entry into the Club of the Most Beautiful Bays of the World (World-Bays) will be held in Thua Thien-Hue Province’s Lang Co Town on May 24-25.

The event aims to promote the rich cultural values and exotic landscapes of Lang Co. It will be a good opportunity for the region to promote its tourist potential and call for investment. During the two-day festival, domestic and international visitors will have an opportunity to take part in various cultural activities.

Lang Co beach, 30 kilometers north of Hue City, is a peaceful fishing village famous for its spectacular natural landscapes, surrounded by mountains and the boundless blue sea with waves playing on its fine sands. Between the mountains and the sea lies the mysterious Lap An lagoon, home to flocks of white storks that return to their nests every evening.

Although the central region experiences the country’s hottest days in summer, average temperatures in Lang Co hover between 220 and 250 Celsius. This is probably why the French colonial rulers chose to make this their vacation destination.

Lang Co was declared the ‘World's Most Beautiful Bay’ in 2009. The site lies along the “Central Heritage Road” route which also includes Phong Nha cave, Hue ancient capital city, Hoi An ancient town and My Son sanctuary. Lang Co is also located on the East West Economic Corridor that has vast potential to grow as a tourist destination.
