A cute museum where the foundation has taken great care to preserve the past and the present of herbal medicine. Some of the inexpensive "cure" like peppermint oil are a must to take home. Who knew they could be so refreshing?

It's 3.3 km from Ben Thanh market so you can catch a taxi, the total price is $2. Last time, my local friend drove and took me there. You can use Google Map to navigate the shortest route by bus.

The free guided tour takes 30 minutes, although ours was a little longer to include some questions and answers, and photo taking. All in all we spent about an hour and a half here.
