Nice little house. You get to see how they lived before the war. This is passed down thru the generations. The elderly couple who live there were working the door. They were very sweet. It is very small but interesting.

To walk in a house that is over 200 years old and still standing begs the training and aprenticeships of craftsmen builders. This home is a combination of chinese , japanese and vietnamese builders.The steps to the first floor are still sturdy and the girl assured us that it was safe to walk on the upstairs floor boards.There is a...

This a lovely old house made out of some beautifully designed and crafted wood. Most if this house has been turned into a gift shop. I did get myself a beautifully hand stitched picture here.

It was nice to see an old house well preserved. However, the sales push for embroidered fabrics was a bit over the top for me. Nice street views from the balcony.

This beautiful old house was built in 1780 and is a national historical and cultural site in Hoi An. It is mainly wooden, two-storied, and combines Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese architecture. It has 80 wooden columns resting on a lotus-shaped base.

By the time I got around to visiting this place I'd already used up all my tickets and had seen a selection of other traditional houses. As such, I was content to take a quick peek through the entrance at this one which didn't seem to be significantly different than the others. Quite an attractive wooden frame.

The huse is old and the structure itself is as it used to be. It is interesting to know how people lived in old days.

After reading the reviews here which ranged from historical gem to touristic we went to this house as part of our ticket to Old Hoi An. There was some family history and some parts of the house are interesting to look at, but it really was at least 60% filled with objects for sale. It was hard to focus on... More

Not only is this an authentic old house, an historic gem, but it is the best place to buy embroidered tablecloths. The family members are all involved in the various crafts on show (and even claim to still live on the premises) Close to the Japanese Bridge - don't miss it
