Duc An Old House, Hoi An
(2.9/5 based on 70 reviews on the web)
At Duc An Old House see some magnificent antique furniture, and photographs telling the history of the house. The house boosts a long, and interesting history. Once a bookshop, and later a medicine dispensary, this house served as the place of anti French activity. Later on, communist government decorated the house, so you can see pictures of heros, and some of their items. Although built in 17th century, the construction we see today, and items date from 1850s. Walk around the yard to enjoy flowers, and greenery.

  • 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, whic...  more »
  • I got this old House seemed the most interesting, because his current boss, family history of over 400 years, does not want to turn it into a gift shop or trade shop and tries to show the real story at home and those who lived in it. The previous tenant, Mr. Cao Hong Lanh-was a member of the Vietnamese Communist Party, so many photos in the House, reflecting its strong revolutionary and party life in different periods, as well as photos of numerous meetings with prominent personalities of the Communist Party. And at the end of the 19th century the House was a bookstore, where you can find not only the works of famous Chinese and Vietnamese authors, but also of the great European thinkers of the enlightenment of Rousseau and Voltaire. A frequent visitor here in that period was a Vietnamese national leader and reformer Phan Chu Trin; You'll also see his picture on the wall. And of course, if you are not very interested in the revolutionary history of the component, you can simply admire the Interior in Sino-Vietnamese style, furniture, objects of decorative and applied art, tableware and beautiful bonsai. Yes just to go to this House, in which no tourist crowds, take a break from the heat and enjoy a refreshing drink.
