  • Viet Nam's classical medicine Museum, which just feels like a great drugstore. Young people are not going to find the Mary is on purpose. About the material there is an incredibly interesting flop here, many of them interested in the stars. Korean description would have been nice to have had

  • Very interesting place to visit in the company of a guide especially because everything is not translated into french. 5 floors to see, all more exciting than the other with a re-enactment of a home wood in Hanoi. Otherwise you will discover decoction and other planks of medicinal plants as well as objects having served to make them. And many other things. Really good.
