Hau Giang sits in the center of the Mekong Delta, being part of its inland area. The Hau River was known as Hau Giang before 1976. Before 1956, the land that now makes up Hau Giang Province was part of Can Tho and Rach Gia Provinces, and from 1957, it belonged entirely to Can Tho Province. In March 1976, the establishment of Hau Giang Province took place by merging three previous provincial-level administrative units: Can Tho Province, Soc Trang Province, and Can Tho City. Hau Giang Province divided into Can Tho Province and Soc Trang Province on December 26, 1991. On November 26, 2003, a further division of Can Tho Province created the centrally-run city of Can Tho and today’s Hau Giang Province.

Being one of the rice production centers of the Southwestern region, Hau Giang Province excels in rice and fruit crops, and it boasts abundant aquatic resources, primarily freshwater shrimp and fish.
