Do you know which one is the biggest province in Southern Vietnam? Today I would like to introduce Dong Nai Province (Tỉnh Đồng Nai). Throughout this describe, you might know more About Vietnam. Dong Nai is located on the south of Vietnam. It is surrounded by Lam Dong in the north, Binh Thuan in the east, Ba Ria - Vung Tau in the south, Binh Duong, Binh Phuoc and Ho Chi Minh City in the west.
The topography includes some valleys, lowland, and hill. The main kinds of land are bazan, alluvial soil. Therefore, it is good condition for industrial plants (rubber, coffee), and orchard.
There are two seasons: the rainy season lasts from May to October and the dry season lasts from November to April next year. The annual average temperature varies between 25.4 and 27.2oC.

I just describe one food that I extremely love is Tan Trieu grapefruit. Grapefruit is very popular in Vietnam and is plant widely in Mekong Delta. However Tan Trieu grapefruit has a distinct scrumptious tasty and luscious smell. Moreover, the local residents make one great wine from their grapefruit. This wine does not contain alcohol like other and the taste is really fantastic.
