Cao Bằng ([kāːw ɓàŋ] (About this soundlisten)) is a city in northern Vietnam.[2] It is the capital and largest settlement of Cao Bằng Province. It is located on the bank of the Bằng Giang river, and is around 30 kilometres (19 mi) away from the border with China's Guangxi region.

History[edit]

The area, Cao Bằng (高平; 'high plateau') was the stronghold of the last years of the Mạc dynasty after their 1592 defeat at the hands of the Trịnh lords. During the 19th century the area was resistant to the Nguyen government.[3]

The city is also known for the Battle of Cao Bằng, the first major decisive victory of the Viet Minh against the French Army.[4]
