It seems that Hoa Binh city is considered a second-order administrative division.

Correct me if I'm missing smth, but I believe Hoa Binh city is a first-order administrative division. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%C3%B2a_B%C3%ACnh

Quote from wiki:

Hòa Bình (Vietnamese: [hʷaː˧˩ ɓən˧˩] ( listen)) is a city in Vietnam. It is the capital of Hòa Bình Province, and located 76 kilometres from Hanoi, and 5 kilometres from the Đà River.[1] The Battle of Hòa Bình was fought around the city from 1951–52 during the First Indochina War.
