Province describes a political or geographic area smaller than nation, but larger than district or city. A province is roughly equivalent to a state. For example:

"I live in the province of Cebu, Philippines."

Province also describes an area of responsibility or expertise, for example:

"Yes, I work in the bookstore, but Children's Literature is not my strong point; ask Linda, that's her province"

Here you go. Vietnam's postcodes have 6 digits. The 1st 2 digits represent the province or city, the middle 2 digits represent the district or town, the 5th digit represents the commune/precinct and finally the 6th digit represents the address code. Just to note that I have not seen any Vietnam addresses with postcodes so far.
