Tuc Dup Hill in southern An Giang Province is a well-known tourist attraction due to its historical significance and natural beauty.

Tri Ton - Tinh Bien in An Giang Province is an ancient area with beautiful scenery and abundant natural resources. Tuc Dup Hill, in particular, has been compared to a "mountainous geological museum" because of its numerous caverns, mountains, woods, and cultural and spiritual historical artifacts.

The hill is hailed as an "immortal fortification" with realistic and vivid material that recreates the fierce war in movies as well as the source of poetic inspiration.
