The old house of Phun Hung consists of 2 stories, right after the Japanese covered bridge. Get a sense of getting back to old time. Therer are souvenir shops in the house but price is rather expensive. Nice view from the second floor.

Unlike many other old houses, one gets to see a lot more here. Interesting old furniture, statues, crockery and cutlery. You get to buy some mementos and art pieces here at reasonable prices.
