One of the questions that many ask us is where is Sophie from in Viet Nam? Well the answer is Binh Duong province in the South. Looking at the map to the left it is just North of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) by about 45 minutes. Relatively speaking it is a new province, formed in 1997 from the Song Be province.

In 2004 the province was home to over 800,000 people.
