Saigon Ao Dai Museum - preserving Vietnamese soul through ao dai 

Specifically, this ao dai museum is located on the isle of Long Phuoc ward, district 9, Saigon, bringing the breath of Hoi An to the bustling town. This is the dedication of artist - designer Sy Hoang built according to a 10-year creative idea with the aim to promote and honor the beauty of Vietnamese traditional costumes, which have a long history of more than 300 years.
