Concierge.com's insider take:
While Vietnam's art scene rests in Hanoi, the walls of this spacious three-story gallery, originally a French colonial building, are filled with oil paintings by some of the nation's most prominent or promising artists. Among those featured are Bui Huu Hung, who specializes in haunting, classical portraits on lacquered wood, and Le Quan, whose bold brushwork found a customer in Bill Clinton. The gallery can also custom-frame the canvases, and crate and ship the art anywhere in the world via DHL or Federal Express.
Open daily 8:30 am to 8:30 pm.
