The museum itself is an exquisite traditional building and holds quite rich collections, such as famous prescriptions and treatment notes.
The next stop is the Ben Thanh Market, the largest indoor market in Vietnam. A variety of souvenirs are sold there but of uneven quality, so there is bargaining space for you. There are many restaurants and snack stalls both inside and outside the market. You can taste authentic Vietnamese snacks with low prices. After that we will guide you to the next stop, War Remnants Museum. You can view different weapons and photos taken in the war time over there.

Afterwards, you will be led to the Notre Dame Cathedral, the city's landmark built in the 11th century. This Gothic building with stained glass windows and gorgeous decorations will provide you great shots. The Central Post Office is just opposite the cathedral. It is the first post office in Vietnam during French colonial period (1887 - 1954). You can pick some postcards there and send them back home.
