I am not sure if this is a museum or a museum/sales exhibit. It has a lot of interesting things to see and is outside of the mainstream. After a film and the tour you are given tea and a chance to but herbal products...More

Visited the Fito museum on our last day and enjoyed it a lot. It’s well worth the 1hr guided tour just for the handcrafted timber and traditional architecture.

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.
