Tân Bình borders district 3, district 10, district 11, district 12, Tân Phú, Gò Vấp and Phú Nhuận. Tan Son Nhat International Airport is located in Tân Bình. Once the largest urban district of Hồ Chí Minh City, Tân Bình was partitioned to create Tân Phú District. Like Bình Thạnh, these districts comprise a vast residential area which grew organically for more than 40 years without any urban planning.
Tân Bình District has one of the most notable high schools in Hồ Chí Minh City, the Nguyễn Thượng Hiền High School. Other public high schools are Nguyễn Chí Thanh High School, Nguyễn Thái Bình High School and one of the most popular private high school in Ho Chi Minh city, Lý Tự Trọng High School.
Tân Bình School's Disability Workplace Education and Training Project is a collaborative project involving Tân Bình District Department of Education and Training, RMIT University's Department of Social and Community Services and the Loreto Vietnam Australia Program (LVAP). The project is funded by the Australian Government International Aid Program (AusAID) and technical support is provided by AVI (Australian Volunteers International).
