Phuoc Binh is a town in Vietnam, about 75 miles north of Ho Chi Minh City (i.e., Saigon). It is on the Song Be River, and sometimes is called Song Be. The town has an airstrip, and the militarily important Highway 14 (QL-14) goes through it.

It was surrounded during the 1972 Easter Offensive and captured in January 1975.
