I go here by motorbike but it can be dangerous. A mix of motorbikes, trucks, bus, cars etc People get killed, ripped in half, crushed all the time between TPHCM and Bien Hoa
From HCM take Dien Bien Phu north and pretty much stay straight and follow the main flow of traffic.
If you want to go via Ap Nhi Hoa ( cross the two rail bridges) when you get to the big bridge at Song Dong Nai, (after pass Suoi Tien) then take a right and go underneath the bridge, not over it. SO you make a U-turn and take the 1st main left ( landmark - the radio tower) Tinh Lo 16
take a right at the light on QL 1B a short distance to the 1st railroad bridge (cau Genh), after the second bridge bear to the left which will be CMT 8 that takes you downtown
Otherwise you have a long way up xa lo hanoi then back track down tinh lo 15
There used to be a ferry on Huong Lo 11. If you cross the big bridge over song dong nai, then at the circle by the Big C, go 3/4 the way around then take that right before you end up back down xa lo ha noi.
That is huong lo 11

--The District Chief turned out to be a cocky little man with a beret on his head and several medals on his uniform shirt.When I was introduced to him I took a deep breath and said the sentence I had been practicing in Vietnamese, which I hoped would mean: "Hello Mister Major, do you by any chance speak French?"I must have produced the tones...more
