#6 of 16 in Historic Sites in Hoi An
Proclaimed a National Historical and Cultural Site, The Old House of Phun Hung offers a perfectly preserved example of an 18th-century Vietnamese town house. Built in 1780, the two-story building displays Vietnamese, Japanese, and Chinese architectural influences, with a spherical roof reminiscent of a turtle shell reflecting the latter style on the second floor. As you enter, occupants of the house will greet you with a tour, depicting the site’s history and up-selling numerous handicrafts and souvenirs located around the house. Chat to the locals and admire the 80 pristine wooden columns supporting the house, stopping for a closer look when something catches your eye.

    Here during the Viet Nam tour of Hoi an's old quarter come is visited only to 遠橋. Take a picture take a picture through the streets of Hoi an from the second floor, go up to the second floor, so you can visit even better. Hoi an comes in 4 times each time. I heard that became the lattice ceiling for Hoi an is often hit by flood damage, and from there on the ground floor to watch for. Feel the history in the old House is not to be missed.

Where to stay in Hoi An

While Hoi An offers a good selection of sleeping options in all price categories, only a few of them lie in the old town, probably the city's most popular tourist area. To stay near this historic neighborhood, look for hotels in the surrounding streets, especially Ba Trieu and Hai Ba Trung. If you can, look for rooms in the evening, when many budget hotels try to fill up by offering deep discounts. For the best choices and bargains, reserve as early as possible.
