Located east of Ho Chi Minh City, Dong Nai is one of the most important economic hubs in the country, thanks to its privileged location adjacent to the Ho Chi Minh City Port and Tan Son Nhat International Airport. There are many international factories and warehouses located around the city and in surrounding areas.
