Why don't Cambodians like Vietnam and Thailand?

Pulsating Indochina

The legend of Thien Hau:
As the legend tells, a girl named Thien Hau lived in the Chinese province of Fujan or Fukien 1,000 years ago. One day she wanted to go out to sea with her father, brother and other boats, but the men refused to take the girl with them. So she followed them in a little dugout canoe. The fishing boats overturned in a sudden storm. Thien Hau miraculously managed to save her father and brother. Since then she has been venerated as the patron saint of fishermen and seafarers.

A visit to the FITO Museum, Vietnam's first museum for traditional medicine, gives an insight into the production of these. The exhibition shows a collection of almost 3000 items used in the manufacture of traditional medicine. Then you walk to a small mobile street café, where you can enjoy the “black drink” the Saigon way: on the street and in conversation with students who pass by during their lecture breaks or with the local population.

Lunch is in the Pho Co - Ancient Town Restaurant, where specialties from all three regions of Vietnam are served in a beautiful ambience.

In the afternoon the tour continues with a tour of the War Crimes Museum, the Reunification Palace, the colonial Saigon, the General Post Office, the City Hall and the Notre Dame Cathedral.
