To Hap Town is the center of the district, lying right at the axis of provincial road No. 9, 40km west of Ba Ngoi Town. The forests of Khanh Son District make up 94% of the natural area. The minority ethnic groups have now enjoyed a settlement and acquired the habit of planting wet-rice, exploiting pine resin, plating tea and coffee trees in an intensively way towards a major professional plantation area.

The rich traditional culture is reflected by  the set of Khanh Son Stone Musical Instruments and the culture of "gongs" typical of the highlands of Central Vietnam.
