The southeastern province of Tay Ninh is blessed with beautiful landscapes including Ba Den mountain and Lo Go Xa mat national park. The Ba Den mountain festival is famous throughout the country. These advantages are helping Tay Ninh develop its cultural and ecological tourism.

Tay Ninh province borders Cambodia on the southwest, through which runs the trans Asia road linking HCM City and Phnompenh. The province has been taking advantage of its location by developing tours to Cambodia and other ASEAN countries."Tay Ninh has a 140 km long border with Cambodia and 3 border gates. The Moc Bai border gate is much used but the other two border gates Xa Mat and Tan Bien have not been fully tapped.
