In the South
There are no specialised Minsk mechanics in Saigon. Both in Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan provinces you will find mechanics familiar with Minsks. In the northern part of Dong Nai province Minsks are common so finding a mechanic should be no problem. The closer to Saigon the rarer good mechanics are. Daklak province also has some Minsks. A mechanic can be found next to the central bus station north of Buon Me Thuot City
