Art lovers have a great deal to appreciate in Ho Chi Minh City. Going through Vietnam’s second city in the company of your guide, you will come into contact with the lives and works of its artists.
New and Colonial
Walking through the colorful lanes of the 3A Alternative Art Area, you will go alongside much innovative street art. While “hip”, the murals show how many modern artists are developing their craft in this center for urban art. You will then go to see Ho Chi Minh’s most impressive Gallic architecture. A visit to the Central Post Office and Notre Dame Cathedral, with its red-bricks exported from Marseilles, will go alongside a greeting to the statue of “Uncle Ho” outside the City Hall.
Stepping into the Phuong Mai Gallery, you will enter a place devoted to the Vietnamese paintings. Showcasing the work of current artists, your guide will take particular care to show you the different styles, as well as the numerous pieces of lacquer and silk paintings on display. They will be able to discuss these styles in more detail when you pay a visit to the larger Museum of Fine Arts nearby. Built in 1929, this heavily-tiled gallery holds pieces dating from the 4th century to the modern day. There is more to this gallery than initially meets the eye so be sure to ask your guide to take you around the statues in the garden.
