Not really worth using one of your 5 tickets to go in here unless you have no where else to go. I would rather spend time in the Cantonese Clubhouse or Hainanese clubhouse. Just an old house with very limited access as the descendants are...More

Descendants from years ago still live here. It's one of two oldest houses and worth going inside. The owner will chat to you and tell you a little of her family.

Don't use a ticket here unless you have about 15 of them. Nothing much to see, better places nearby.

So little information came the tourist's way when exploring these places. This old house was really interesting and would have benefited from having a guide. Probably spent about 20 minutes here, which was quite a bit longer than other places we visited. I enjoyed this...More
