Enjoying coffee while showing off your painting skills – an experience loved by Hanoi office workers at the weekend.

On weekends, if the office association wants to find a relaxing cafe, that combines mind-relaxing activities, you can go to cafes that integrate painting workshops to relieve the mood and learn more interesting things about art.

Couchsurfing Cafe

Hiding in a mossy, ancient alley in Hanoi is a peaceful cafe full of art. Couchsurfing Cafe was built in the old architectural style, with a bit of a classic direction, giving visitors a cozy and rustic feeling. The shop is the “child” of close friends who are passionate about art, so it is decorated very “gout”. Most of the furniture from tables, chairs, and pictures on the wall are hand-designed by the owners themselves from wood, bamboo, or recycled materials.
