Several Ho Chi Minh City's tourism products have been listed among the top 20 unique tours promising interesting experiences for travelers in Vietnam.

Among them, a tour gives travelers a chance to try working as a physician and learn about traditional medicine at the Museum of Traditional Vietnamese Medicine in District 10, according to the list announced by the Vietnam Record Organization (VietKings) last month.

The private museum features more than 3,000 objects related to traditional medicine of Vietnam, including herb slicers and grinders dating back some 2,500 years, a collection of books with over 100,000 pages in total written in Han (Chinese) and Nom (old Chinese-like script of Vietnam), and hundreds of valuable remedies.

Another tour in the list is a dining-in-the-dark journey at Noir Restaurant, where tourists can enjoy delicate tastes and structures of dishes completely in the dark with services provided by well-trained visually-impaired waiters and waitresses. It brings about not only dining experiences but also a chance for exchange between the abled and the disabled.

Nguyen Thi Anh Hoa, Director of the HCMC Tourism Department, said that since 2022, the southern metropolis has reaped success in the program developing one typical tourism product for each district. The department has also been striving to reform products so that the city can become a must-visit destination.

She noted that HCMC now boasts more than 60 tourism products, including 30 new ones.
