History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

After the Fall of Saigon, 30 April 1975, Bạc Liêu Province and Cà Mau Province were merged into one new entity called Minh Hải Province. Although it is located in Vietnam, many years ago this land was a part of the Khmer Empire which ruled most of Indochina many centuries ago. It is still home to many ethnic Khmer people. In 1996, Minh Hai Province was split into two, with the northeast becoming Bạc Liêu Province and the southwest becoming Cà Mau Province.
