Nga Sơn is a district (huyện) of Thanh Hóa Province in the North Central Coast region of Vietnam. The Nga Sơn district was named after the boondocks. In this district, there are many historical vestiges such as Từ Thức grotto, Tien Pagoda (Chùa Tiên), and Mai An Tiem, who, according to legend, found an island where only watermelons grow. Many years ago, Nga Sơn villagers were well-known for planting sedge, a grass-like plant with triangular stems, and weaving mats.


As of 2018, the district has a population of 155,200[1] and an area of 151 km². The district capital is Nga Sơn.[1]


The district is located in the northeast area of Thanh Hóa province, about 42 kilometers from Thanh Hóa. To the north and east the district borders with the Ninh Bình Province, to the west the Hà Trung District, and to the south it borders with the Hậu Lộc District.


The district terrain consists mainly of plains, including Len River, which flows through the southern district.

The district has a long coastline of 20 kilometers. Nga Sơn annually encroaches on the sea, from 80 to 100 meters, due to the alluvium deposits of the Red River and Day River.


The high school, Ba Dinh Nga Sơn, is located in Nga Sơn township. Since 1991, groups of young people have left town after graduating from school, seeking greater study opportunities in other towns universities.
