However, there are still some weaknesses in the management of heritage sites such as some of heritage sites are not properly used and protected; the sanitation and environment in heritage sites need to be improved significantly; there should be some marking lines to signify the parking areas for visitors; completion of direction panels of heritage sites for visitors; the information panels need to be replaced with suitable material and added with UNESCO logo. Cao Bang also has to improve infrastructure in some heritage sites in Hoa An district (access path to Nguom Boc site), Tra Linh, Quang Uyen, Ha Lang, and Trung Khanh.
