Dong Nai River – Bien Hoa


I spent Day 4 of Tet with my Vietnamese friend and his family just outside of Bien Hoa yesterday.  Bien Hoa is a suburb of Saigon now and a really nice small city.  The people are very friendly.  We rode my motorbike in an area behind his house where I took these nice shots of the local people and the Dong Nai River.

My next visit I will take some more shots of the city.  I only spent one night in Bien Hoa this time around but I plan to spend more in the future to ‘escape’ the city 🙂


  1. I understand that Bien Hoa is becoming quite an industrial town. Is that right? Now I understand why people leave their shoes at the door. Great pics. I am always looking forward to the next ones. Have you ever thought about going to Mau Son Mountain? Mike

  2. @Mike: The Americans developed a huge industrial zone. I will get some pictures later. It looks like a transplanted American city sometimes.

    @Anna: It is to the right of the Highway 1 Dong Nai River bridge just outside of Bien Hoa. About 5-10 minutes from Big C.

  3. Bien Hoa is a nice, relatively conservative vietnam city. I was in the city a few days during my time i was there. Seem like you are having a great time in v.n.
