Update: Dec 09, 2014
The southern province of Binh Duong inaugurated its first international passenger bus service to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on December 6th.

Operated by Phuong Trinh Joint Stock Company, the service aims to meet the rising demand in transportation, tourism, medical checkup and trading between the two localities and the two countries as well.

Phuong Trinh Company Director Vu Quang Thanh said six trips run between Binh Duong and Phnom Penh from the early morning to 05:00 pm daily. A return fare costs VND500,000 (USD23).

Binh Duong, together with the southern province of Dong Nai and Ho Chi Minh City, are amongst the most attractive FDI destinations in Viet Nam.

In the past 11 months, it ranked third in terms of disbursed foreign direct investment with USD1.42 billion after northern Thai Nguyen province and Ho Chi Minh City.

The locality, together with Dong Nai, Tay Ninh, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Binh Phuoc, Long An and Tien Giang provinces and Ho Chi Minh City, form Viet Nam’s southern key economic region.
