Fito Museum was created with a nice and unique theme. But now they have just become more greedy with hiked unaffordable entry fee, absolutely uninformed guides, incomprehensible English pronunciation...ridiculous now to take friends and family there anymore...will never visit again.

This proved to be very interesting with many exhibits presented very well. The young man who was our guide spoke English well and could be easily understood.

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.
