Hanoi offers an array of art galleries, from commercial ones pumping out appealing art and copies for the masses to expensive high-end artworks, where you might pick up an original $5,000-piece from one of Vietnam’s in-demand artists. Art galleries are the places where Vietnam’s culture, legacy and history are showcased to the fullest in the eyes of local artists. Depending on their life experiences and how they view the world, Vietnamese traditions and people will appear differently in the artists' portraits. Besides, art galleries can take the form of a museum in which the proprietor can display their gorgeous collection of Vietnamese Antiquities and ingenious artifacts. Most of the objects displayed in this type of gallery are for sale and usually at reasonable prices despite its museum-level quality.
