Thu Dau Mot

Thu Dau Mot is located in the Binh Duong Province about 1 hour motorbike ride from Ho Chi Minh City. It is a pretty good sized city that is relatively clean and quiet. This is where my friend, Minh Ngoc, lives and works. Thu Dau Mot also tends to be the route for everyone wanted to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels. Just outside the city, commuters have to cross the Saigon River on a ferry due to the bridge being repaired.
