Better than the other houses

This was probably the best of the houses in the Ancient town. Well maintained and still used. Had a quick tour and the chance to purchase items which we declined.

Nice to see this house still in use. We toured the house but noticed that they use it primarily to see wares particularly table cloths and napkins.

This is a great example of a historical house that is still inhabited by a family. They have items to buy in the house including traditional items that they still make by hand. It is interesting to view the layout of the house and the different rooms and spaces plus admire the woodwork used in the house. This house has... More

It is highly likely that you won't enjoy a visit to this old house. When you walk in the door you are taken on a tour. After a couple of sentences about the house you are taken around and shown things which you can buy such as embroidery and clothes. It is pushed on you by the "guide" showing you... More

Ancient quayside boarding house / bordello that catered to all the needs of the various foreign trades of the Middle-Ages. Like something from the American Wild West during the prospecting gold rush era.

This house allows you to see into the way of life in the past. Great architectural detail and has been well maintained. A little too much sales with goods to purchase.

Nice to see the house nicely cared for. Good to see the history in the house and town. Alot of dark wood used back in the olden days. fyi. The doors leading to the outside porch is very slim. So someone with wide shoulders has to turn sideways. Sorry no pics. It's in my bigger camera.

I loved this, being able to be in the house observing true Vietnamese way of life. The embroidery items for sale show so much detail and all hand done.
