Quang Dien borders with the East Sea to the north and northeast, Phong Dien district to the west and northwest, Huong Tra townlet to the south. The district is accessible thanks to provincial road 11A, provincial road 4, roads connected with National Road 1A and adjacent areas. As the district is not too far from Hue city center and Hue Monuments Complex, it is capable of becoming a sub-urban economic area which continues the development of Hue urban area.

Quang Dien is a fertile land situated in the downstream of Bo River and the rice-producing area of the province. With 11 km-long coastline, local off-shore fishing is expected to be productive thanks to various kinds of seafood available.
