Another tourist trap. Toilet okay though
Mar 2017 • Couples
Even if you have a private car from Hanoi to halong bay they stop here. It is half way the trip.

Everything they sell is ENORMOUSLY overrated. Don't be tricked it is a lot cheaper on(night) markets.

Food is okay, price about higher than usual in Vietnam but you wanna eat after 2 hours. Toilets are clean and free.

Toilet only
Jan 2017 • Couples
Good and clean toilets, food and snacks are almost double the price. Also you can walk through the art section, but prices are crazy once again!!

perfect spot for a loo break but don't shop!
Sep 2016 • Couples
driving from Hanoi to Halong Bay and back we ended up there twice and made the mistake of buying things both times (obviously paying less the second time). There is nothing you can't find in the city and elsewhere in Vietnam for a whole lot cheaper even with hard bargaining. Loos were a welcome sight!

CRAZY EXPENSIVE!

I found that everything was very expensive and we've stopped in such a place twice. Just buy only essentials. If you have money to spend on art, they have some nice stuff

Beautiful art but at a price
May 2016 • Friends
Went here on a pit stop from Hanoi to Halong bay. Our tour group was given a tour of the place and explained the history of the place. Lots of beautiful artwork and are able to watch the artist work. Pricey compared to other art found in Vietnam.

Clean toilets
Jun 2016 • Solo
This pit stop on the way to or from Ha Long to Hanoi is a good rest stop.
I had a bit of a tummy bug and was relieved to see lovely clean toilets.
Usual tourist trap type store with cafe at the back.

The biggest rip off merchants encountered in Vietnam
Mar 2016 • Couples
Five dollars for an ice cream, two dollars for a small packet of crisps, plates 25 dollars more expensive than Hanoi. That says it all... At least they didn't charge for the toilet

Loved the shopping opportunity - staff very keen to make you buy though!
Dec 2015 • Family
We were on our way from Ha lung Bay towards Hanoi and our coach driver made a stop here. Great facilities (toilets, café, food) and there are some fantastic items you can purchase. However we were very much put off initially because as soon as we entered the store 3 staff followed us wherever we went in the store! It felt most uncomfortable - I'm sure they wanted to help us however it stopped us from looking at some things because as soon as we did one of the 3 staff swooped to say 'would you like that?'. It was over-zealous and put us off initially. However on our trip back from Hanoi when we stopped there again we did make some purchases because there were fewer staff on duty at the time! Got some lovely Vietnamese silk ties and scarves.

Marble excellent buy!
Nov 2014 • Couples
We have twice purchased marble garden statues from ABC and had them shipped to NZ. They have arrived in 1 piece, well packed and a center piece of our garden. Our last purchase we chose a statue that had a crack in it, so they made us a replica and sent us progress photos of it being made before it was shipped out.

Highly recommend.

ABC Fine Arts Buyer Beware
Nov 2014 • Couples
this place is a common stop for for tourists travelling to Halong Bay.There is a wide selection of clothes, jewelry,and marble statues.After negotiating a price for a marble statue and signing a contract which included shipping costs and insurance, the statue was received with a chip.
The company was contacted who then contacted the shipper Vinalink Logistics.I was asked to obtain a quote for repair and was told that they would pay. After 1 month, they have not responded or acknowledge my emails.
I would hesitate to purchase any large items requiring shipping to North America as you have no recourse if problems occur
