    You don't need to know anything about traditional medicine to appreciate the rare collections of pictures and artefacts stored in this old town house as an impromptu private museum. Yes, it is owed by a herb company but they are very cool and unobtrusive about it, a real must when in HCMC, loved it !

    when you read all the articles about the Vietnamese war and see all the pics on display something inside you would make you feel for all those people who suffered a lot by seeing their dear ones get killed cause of war and how they had to survive in those severe conditions . lastly you would see all the weapons used in the war. its worth a visit.

    I had read just a couple of reviews about this Ao Dai museum located about 23 kms outside Saigon in Long Phuoc District 9. It truly is worth a visit and can be reached by local means using the No. 88 bus departing from Ben Thanh Bus Station (NOT Ben Thanh Market). Actually we went to the market instead of the bus station (they are near but not that near) & nearly gave up but happened to see a No 88 & waved it down & it stopped (well, slowed down) & we hopped on. For 6,000 VND we travelled 23 kms on a journey of 1.1/2 hours through not very exciting districts until crossing the last bridge to reach lush countryside. The Museum really is lovely and very peaceful. We had called earlier to ask for an English-speaking guide. The tour, at a gentle pace, lasted just over an hour, then we wandered on our own, enjoying the lake and gardens. Miss France arrived for a photoshoot so the venue wasn't as unknown as it first seemed. The "stop" for the No. 88 is on the "main" road about 300 metres from the Museum which is located up a small dirt road. Buses are frequent around every 12 mins. Enjoy!

    Oddball place that is a throwback to the Communist era. Entry is free.

    The gardens have a few tatty aircraft surrounded by bonsai and plants with labels telling you of the heroic deeds against the oppressors, go into the building and see two floors of pictures of heroic pilots, sadly only captioned in Vietnamese, strange but an interesting hour if you are close.

    After I left the shop and thought about the few hours I spent there I think the experience started the moment I entered the street the business is located. Coming off a busy vehicle strewn road the deadend street itself is light filled and clean, flanked by a mix of well kept multi storey residential and commercial older style buildings presenting a lovely chilled scene. The shop itself is well decorated, crossing a green threshold you are greeted with a relaxing atmosphere featuring walls lined with bottles of rice spirit infused with fruit and herbs and jars of coffee and tea.

    The staff are friendly and have a really sound knowledge of what they were offering. If you want to try the spirits you can either choose from the suggestions on the menu or make it up yourself adding a bit of this and that, the number of variations would run into the hundreds and all for the same price of D29,000 per cup (about the same size as a sāke cup). The drinks themselves were different and not the type of thing you just throw back, more something you sip away at. The shop does serve food after 6pm (on the day I was there), had the green paypaya salad with chicken which was tastful and refreshing. Products can be purchased to take away and having brought some Robusta coffee beans roasted with butter I left thinking I will have to come back.
