Long An Province Vietnam
Additionally there has been a considerable influx of Hong Kong and Taiwanese companies that have chosen Long An as the location to process agricultural products for either domestic consumption or for export. According to Long An Industrial Zones Authority there are currently 110 foreign companies already operating in Long An. Of these 60% are Taiwanese with other major investors being from Thailand, France, the U.K. and Korea. Total investment of these foreign firms currently exceeds $1 billion and is growing rapidly. Production of shoes, clothing and plastics are the largest manufacturing industries province wide.
Though being the capital of the province, Tan An does not have many tourist interests and is located only 30 miles away from Ho Chi Minh City. It is convenient to organize daytrips to visit, to get a sense of a smaller, more provincial city.
Long An is well known for the Binh Ta archeological sites, such as Go Xoai, Go Don and Go Nam Tuoc. These buildings are what remain of the Oc Eo-Phu Nam culture (1st to 7th centuries AD). Attractions in the province include the Nguyen Huynh Duc temple and tomb; the Long An lake and the Ton Thanh pagoda which was built in the 19th century. While visiting, the pineapples and mangos from Ben Luc are considered a “must have” fresh produce treat for visitors.
