It is a very nice place to view the historical design and construction methods. A family still lives ther and of course you will be met with another opportunity to buy something to take home

it's worthwhile to visit this really old house which has a lot of history, it's not far from the Japanese bridge , you can buy souvenirs within the house. If you have a problem finding the old house just ask it's a well known tourist spot in Hoi An.

This is one of the more ticket worthy places to visit in the ancient town area. We had a small tour of the place by one of the staff.

We found this a very interesting place to stop and have a look through. The guide met us at the door and explained the symbolic meaning of the various carvings on the walls and furniture, and related stories of what it was like to live in the house during the frequent floods Hoi An experiences. We were fascinated by the... More

It is besides all the temples and other houses one of the houses which you must have seen. It really shows how they have lived a few hundert years before, but to participate on a guided tour is not necessary

Hoi an at night looked like a dream with so many lanterns pervading all the way. Street food such as banh mi, banh trang cuon thit heo, banh xeo will make your trip become a food tour. At daytime, street was less busy than nighttime with street vendors and tourists (maybe people often come there for the night only), so... More
