A lovely way to spend the afternoon where we got to play the curious cat in Mr. Tan's house (actually his house too is a work of art in itself). From the neatly laid out garden to his paintings inside the house, every placement we were told has meaning and it was an absolute eye opener to get a peek into the life of an artist in Vietnam. Best of all, Mr. Tan is very accommodating and will go to great lengths to ensure that you're comfortable and that your queries are answered. If you're into the arts then this is a must and you probably won't find a better host.
