This is a review about both the museum and the lovely Tea Shop in its courtyard. The museum is a must see for anyone interested in the ancient cultures of Vietnam. As to the tea shop, it is the brainchild of a Saigon native French educated economist, Dan Tranh. As I expressed interest in Jasmin tea, he invited me to have some with him, from jasmine flowers harvested by him from his own garden. We chatted about his time in France, his numerous trips in Vietnam 🇻🇳 to the various tea growing regions, where artisanal methods are still used. His knowledge of tea making is vast and precise. His shop is lovely, and very inviting. It is encounters like this that make traveling such a rewarding experience! Highly recommended!
Very good museum for historical artifacts and records. It looks a little run down but overall it is good. Don’t forget to drop by the puppet show on water. Highly recommended for tourists
