Located 30 kilometres to the northeast of Ho Chi Minh City, Bien Hoa is one of the oldest cities in southern Vietnam. The city sits on the Dong Nai River and, while an industrial hub, it resides within a fishing and agricultural region. Today, hotels in Bien Hoa are a great base of operations for those who wish to explore the city and its role in military history, or go farther afield to see the entire Dong Nai province.
Things to Do in Bien Hoa
Start at the top and visit the Buu Phong Pagoda, situated on Buu Long Mountain. You'll probably get winded trekking the 100 steps to the top, but that's what you’ve been slaving away on that stair stepper back home for, right? When you get there, see clothes dating back to the Nguyen dynasty, strange rock formations and historic Buddha statues. Next, explore Cat Tien National Park with its unique topography, diverse ecosystem and rare animal species, like the Java rhinoceros. The land where the park is located was once considered holy ground by the ancient Phu Nam civilisation and many relics can still be seen today.
