This Place Is Laughable
Oct 2019
I do not like being so critical in my reviews, but, while this was a "required" part of our two week, 6 city private tour of China, the SO obvious sales pitch makes me think that the tour companies get a kickback and so, the concept loses nearly all sense of credibility. As others have said, we were ushered into a room with a movie screen, two rows of chairs, and were greeted by an onsite assistant, who then had us watch a short film on the flowers and plants used in herbal medicines. In the meantime, two women came in and gave us foot massages, using a cream that promises to help every living system in your body. Then, the assistant introduced us to the silver-haired, white-coated Dr. Chen, who, through a woman interpreter, felt our pulses, looked at out eyes and our lifelines, yada, yada, yada, stating oh, so sincerely how we each have kidney, circulation, you-name-it issues and we would be best served by purchasing all kinds of herbal medicines for which he would GLADLY write prescriptions. We just as sincerely said no, thank you. It was strongly suggested that we should tip the two foot masseuses and so we did, only to find out from OUR (personal) guide that all tips were prepaid. He tried to get back our tips but the staff here refused to return our money. Ultimately, it was all a laughable experience, but we nevertheless got a kick out of it.

Pro-Tips for Your Traditional Chinese Medicine Museum Visit: It's OK
Nov 2019
We came here as part of a UTO Tour. The place is a tourist trap...no question. But it is harmless. Just go with it. You started with a foot massage which is nice. Then you get an extended pitch/presentation on Chinese medicine. Then they bring in doctors to give you a quick diagnosis of all your ailments. Yep, it's a little weird. Then they pitch you on all sorts of Chinese natural remedies. The place is a little mangy for sure. But we rolled with it and had a few laughs. It's not the worst way to spend an hour or two.

Overkill and oversell
Nov 2019 • Couples
It started as a warm foot bath with herbs resembling black tea...then we had a sleep from a man dressed in a white coat extolling the virtues of Chinese medicine....then afterwards even more Men in White came in with English interpreters who zeroed in on all our illnesses and aches. Some bought medicine others didn't. Including me and my husband. Then the heavy tactics came. We will get sick, we will die early, we will never be healthy unless we spend big dollars/yuen on Chinese medicine. When we repeatedly said no, they moved on to the next victim.....

worst parts Part of our trip tour
May 2019 • Couples
On the way the to the Traditional Chinese Medicine Museum our tour guide started (out of nowhere) to talk about how Chinese herbal medicine is amazing and how it has helped her family so greatly. The tour guides are quite good at this as they integrate it into a whole family circumstance.
After arriving, someone looking very doctor like comes into the room and explains all about herbal medicine. Then he brings in the ‘senior doctors’ to diagnose everyone who would like to be diagnosed. Almost everyone in our group said yes to the diagnose. After a few minutes these guys (again in a white coat’ come in with an interpreter and ask you to fill out a questionnaire, the by taking your pulse they give you their diagnosis. Everyone who took the diagnosis needed at least $1200.00 worth of herbs. They also add a few things that are very generic for people from the west, and make you feel like you are about to die without them.
I was diagnose with thick blood and told I had high cholesterol, well less than three months ago I had a blood test and my cholesterol was excellent.
This is a total farce! The infomercial advertisement this pretend doctor gives is amazing, and the way the tour guide adds their own little stories is actually quite good, but in the end it is just a another money grabbing part of these tours!

Tourist Trap - DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME & MONEY
Sep 2019
Chinese Herbal Institute. We thought we could learn something but it turned out a tourist trap. Super strong sewage odour radiated from an old Chinese Architect Building where 30 of us were put into a room with row of chairs for a power point presentation about some Chinese urban legend stories - No photo or video allowed - Not sure why? Copy right ? or trick of trade?

After a presentation in English presented by Dr in charge, they brought out warm buckets of herbal for foot massage with a message - 20-30 yuan tipping is recommended but its not compulsory. If you wish to exam by the Chinese Herbal Dr put your hand up. They were all prepared with English interpretations working in wonder by reading your pulses, visual inspection of tongue and sniffing body odour, they confidently spelled out what wrong with your organs - No Blood test, X-rays, or other modern diagnostic tools required . They recommended the magical Chinese Tablets already packed into bottles - range from a few AUD hundreds to Thousands depending on the duration (3-6 months) of supply.

Children under 18 are not allowed to have foot massage due to heart and allergy issue. Is this another new scientific discovery in Chinese medicine or legal issue with children?

They proudly introduced us a special cream for a special price $60AUD for a tub of "God Cream" it cures all type of skin conditions. No active ingredients listed on the tub, no manufacture date, no expiry date, only God know what they made of !
