The perfume of herbal medicines lingers in the air in the central streets and alleys of Cho Lon. This old colonial Merchants house is typical of the wealthy businesses in Saigon. Variations of these buildings can be seen in all the old trading ports on the silk and ceramics sea route from Beijing to Bombay. Each port has its own characteristics added to a basic European architectural style of shop house. The balconies are always filled with handsome pots and flowers and the pavement piled with the merchants' wares - even today.
