The house is amazing and beautiful. Love the old architecture. The design is quite unique and great for 30 minutes to explore around. You have to pay 20,000VNd to get in, but it's worth the price. There are some creepy restaurants around.

I came here with some friends as I heard about this place before. The architecture and design reflect the local spirit and past time. You get to know how the king Meo of the region lived. It is interesting.

You could learn a lot from the way he built his house and how he arranged places for his people. And also some interesting stories from the tour guide

Quite surprising to see such a nice piece of Chinese architecture in such a small village. It is quite a big mansion composed of different blocks sitting on a gentle slope. The detailing is quite impressive too. Worth to stop for a visit.

Not a "touristy" place and deceptively bigger than it seems at first. Interesting to see the living quarters such as the individual bedrooms of the three wives and explore the building. Remember to walk around outside. We saw the water cistern supplying water to the...More
