What people are saying:

This time I stayed at the hotel just next to the old house, so our first location the next day was here! The entrance fee is VND 10,000, but unfortunately there is not much explanation except for the introduction of the guide. Most tourists visit by themselves May feel boring. The entire ancient house has experienced several owners, and there are expansions in between. It shows the living environment and lifestyle of Vietnamese in the traditional period, which is a bit similar to the previous Chinese society. The house is generally well preserved. If someone guides and introduces it, I believe it will be more rewarding and understand the small ingenuity of house construction!! This is a restored local traditional house. You will get a brochure, but you can get a better introduction. However, if you happen to be relatively recent, the 10-minute stay is worth it. There is a similar place on a nearby street, which is a tea house, where we got a brief explanation from the waiter.

    Lovely historic home

    Very close to our hotel we stopped in and found a great glimpse of 18th century architecture. Formerly a merchant's home we saw what life may have been like a couple hundred years ago. Interesting...
