  • This House itself would be very nice, unfortunately it's a shop where, after a few minutes of explanation, the girls try to sell tissues or other souvenirs in a shambles with tourists who come and go. So far nothing to say, the worst thing is that even in this store require the ticket. I think if an attraction is surcharge should not be turned into a store!

  • Excellent old house to visit to learn more about a family with 6 generations living together and they keep going on for forever
  • Nice to see that this little old house has been preserved, but some more information (written or by guides) might've made it a lot more interesting.
  • Little educational value. Too many stalls selling souvenirs inside this house.
  • Old house constructed with influences from the vietnamese, chinese and japanese. Interesting for a visit.
  • Great house to look , it is really interesting and a great example of how Vietnamese lived, still occupied with distant relatives of the house
