Bien Hoa: Agent Orange


Bien Hoa is a great city. It’s built along the Dong Nai river, which means lots of opportunities for coffee and meals with a breeze and a nice view. We visited Buu Long Park, where you can rent swan paddle boats and have a romantic ride while being surrounded by limestone karsts.

Bien Hoa is also the home of Agent Orange. During the Vietnam War, there was an American airbase that produced and stored the deadly dioxin. The area, which is now separated by a wall from the rest of the city, is still very contaminated. We have a peak over the wall and discuss the current and past affects of Agent Orange in Bien Hoa.
