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.

I think how much you enjoy the museum depends on your guide. The video you watch at the beginning is old but interesting. There are lots of interesting things in the museum, but our guide tried so hard to be engaging and it wasn't working....More

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.
