Administrative divisionsEdit

Bạc Liêu is subdivided into seven district-level sub-divisions:

  • 5 districts:
  • 1 district-level town:

They are further subdivided into seven commune-level towns (or townlets), 50 communes, and seven wards.


Bạc Liêu is located on Mekong Delta, although it is actually located slightly to the south of the Mekong's main outflows. Bạc Liêu is around 100 kilometres (62 mi) south of Cần Thơ, the largest city in the Mekong Delta.


The most important parts of Bạc Liêu's economy are rice farming, fishing, food processing, and clothing manufacturing.


After the Fall of Saigon, 30 April 1975, Bạc Liêu province and Cà Mau province were merged into one new entity called Minh Hải province. In 1996, Minh Hải province was split into two, with the northeast becoming Bạc Liêu province and the southwest becoming Cà Mau province. Bac Lieu is renowned for its community of Teochew Chinese.


Vọng cổ, an important song in the traditional music of southern Vietnam, was composed in Bạc Liêu around 1918 or 1919.

Referring to Bac Lieu, many people immediately think of the homeland of Prince Bac Lieu (Công Tử Bạc Liêu) Trần Trinh Huy also called Ba Huy, or the Black Prince – was a famous player not only in Bac Lieu but even in Saigon and the South of Vietnam during the 1930s and 1940s.[2]
