If you are on a tour of the cu chi tunnels, you would see that the main souvenir store in the center of the tunnels sells many things and one of the things that aroused my curiosity is the cobra toxin cream!

Snake venom could ease the debilitating pain from arthritis, say scientists. About 99 percent of the venom is non-toxic according to the vietnamese seller which I took with a grain of salt. It costs 100,000-150,000 VND a pack!

Favorite Dish: i thing this must be put to my local customs pages since this is not edible.

Address: available everywhere!
Price Comparison: about average
Price: US$11-20
