  • Another of the centuries-old homes that have been preserved in Hoi An Old Town, this one is just off the west side of the Covered Bridge. It has large open halls, two stories and a wonderful balcony.....  more »
  • This house was rather interesting (more than the previous one) however I am not so sure about the strength of the place in itself and I think that the house will look more interesting if they remove.....  more »

  • 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).
