  • Tried to visit the house three times, it was closed all three times and when we finally saw the doors were open a rude old man told us off for trying to park in front of the building (there was no sign that says no bike parking though). That’s when I decided not to go inside at all. #offended
  • I liked this more than the tan ky old house
  • A very nice and well preserved Hoi An house. You will need one of the entrance tickets to visit.
  • regal and impressive building, but they sell trinkets which ruins the atmosphere
  • Nice.
