BINHDUONG DISCOVERIES

 

If you like surprises, then Binh Duong's the place to be. Since we broke ground at Waterfall BinhDuong we've been wandering the highways and byways of our neighbourhood. Our discoveries have included: (1) Singapore style chicken rice opposite the Thu Dau Mot stadium; (2) My Lien near Bung Market, the best place to eat shredded pork steamed rice cakes; (3) the architect Vo Trong Nghia's iconic Wind and Water Cafe on Tran Binh Trong in Thu Dau Mot Town and his eco-friendly Phan Chu Trinh School in Di-An. We've also discovered Minh Long's second's department on the 2nd Floor of Minh Sang Plaza.
