Bac Ninh Images

Bac Ninh Images is a photo album of Bac Ninh Province, northern Vietnam. Being the smallest one in Vietnam and without great natural landscapes, Bac Ninh is home to those of the oldest Buddhist pagodas in the country, home to Quan Ho Songs (listed as World Intangible Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO) and home to century-old handicraft villages... Our photo album is to show some samples of these cultural legacies of the province.
