Apricot Gallery, Hanoi

40B Hang Bong Street
Hoan Kiem District
Tel: 84 4 828 8965's insider take:

The elongated colonial-era house that houses this respected gallery is a work of art in itself, especially the central atrium originally built for light and ventilation that now holds a fish pond and stand of pole vault–high bamboo. Hanoi's University of Fine Arts, founded in 1925, has produced more than its share of talented painters, and works by many of these artists are displayed, including the bright abstracts of Thanh Chuong and the streetscapes of Le Quan. The gallery can also custom-frame any painting, build a special crate, and ship the picture overseas via DHL or Federal Express.

Open daily 8 am to 8 pm.
