Lao Hac Quan

Named after a character from a famous Vietnamese short story, this coffee shop has done a fantastic job to create what the locals usually think of when they hear this name. Since the context of the story is in a Vietnamese rural area dozens of years ago, the decoration and design of Lao Hac Quan carry an ancient vibe. Every object and corner here can be a special remark for your photo. Like many other vintage cafes in Ho Chi Minh City, the lightning here is quite dim for a good shot, so you might want to consider coming here in the morning and afternoon.
