Trảng Bàng is a district in Tây Ninh Province, in the Southeast region of Vietnam. It has a traditional artisan industry, and recently has opened an industrial zone for foreign investment. This town has a famous food called bánh canh Trảng Bàng, a kind of pork noodle soup and "Trảng Bàng dew-wetted rice paper" (Vietnamese: Bánh tráng phơi sương Trảng Bàng), served with boiled pork, local herbs and Vietnamese fish sauce.
Outside Vietnam it is most famous for the iconic and Pulitzer Prize-winning image of a nude Phan Thi Kim Phuc (who had torn off her burning clothes to survive the attack) and other Vietnamese children fleeing a napalm attack on the village of Trảng Bàng alongside ARVN soldiers. The image was taken by the photographer Nick Ut.
