Lang Son is an interesting place to visit. The town and its ancient citadel have been the scene of many invasions and the French suffered 3 defeats there during colonial time.
In 1979 during the short Sino-Vietnamese War, Lang Son was once more the center of fighting and sustained extensive damage. Nevertheless there are quite a few vestiges and houses dating from the French Colonisation.
