Located in the heart of the Bac Lieu Town, Bac Lieu Province, Western Villas was built with the Western architecture features in the early 20th century that have spacious surroundings, symmetrical architecture, and tile-covered roofs.

Different from others provinces such as Can Tho and An Giang, Bac Lieu still owns many western-style buildings include the villa of Bac Lieu Mandarin’s son, which stands along the river, and other buildings situated in the Hang Me Park, such as the Administration House, the court, the Bo Mansion (the building of the head mandarin) the Son quarter official building, and Dong Trach. Currently, the buildings are served for the provincial Library, the People’ Court of Investigation, and the office for the Bac Lieu Newspaper.

The material for the construction of the villas such as steel, marble, tile, and brick were all sent from France. Since the constructions were built in the architecture style of Western in the 20th century, they have spacious surroundings, symmetrical architecture, and tile-covered roofs. The roofs are octagonal, and the supporting rafters look somewhat like those in a pagoda. unlike the French villas in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City or Da Lat, the old villas and mansions of Bac Lieu have their own architecture style.

Generally, those villas were originally designed to have high ceiling, yellow painted walls and high vault-like roofs. The 30 mansions and villas that remain standing along the two banks of the river in Bac Lieu have become part of the heritage of Bac Lieu Province.
