Hậu Giang is a province of Vietnam, in the Mekong Delta region in the southern part of that country. Vị Thanh is the capital.

Until 1975, the province of Hậu Giang included the city of Cần Thơ; that city was the capital of the province. In 1975, the province was renamed Cần Thơ Province, with the city of Cần Thơ still the capital. In late 2004, Cần Thơ and some surrounding cities became Cần Thơ Municipality (Thành Phố Cần Thơ). The remainder of Cần Thơ Province became Hậu Giang Province.

Hậu Giang has an industrial zone of 902 ha. There are 120 km National roads: National Highway 61 (which leads to National Highway 1 which leads to Cần Thơ Municipality on the Hậu River which leads to Ho Chi Minh City), and water connections by canal and river to the Hậu River.
