  • Visited this old house as it’s just before the Japanese bridge and is noted for its traditional architecture and for showing the interior still with its original furniture. Whilst it’s a nice building...  more »
  • It was built at the end of the nineteenth century in the heart of the old city, not far from one end of the Japanese Bridge. Outside we can see a mixture of the Vietnamese style in the structure, the Chinese style in the balcony and the Japanese one in the roof. It is spread on a ground floor and on a close-up furnished with original furniture from the time it was erected, but everywhere a large amount of things for sale as well as workers intent on their preparation.

  • Lovely old Hoi An house to visit. You can get a ticket for 120kVND and visit 5 sites out of a selection of 22 in the area. It's worth it and gives you a purpose for walking around and it helps maintaining the historical sites.
  • Best of the ancient houses (the others were too busy and/or just a facade for a shop).
