  • Just because it is a traditional old houses near the bridge of Japan can see only in one. Are adopting styles of lattice floor luggage for a brief description of the House, upstairs and Japan, Chinese-style and ends up in a few minutes. Glimpse of that time like Penang and Malacca Peranakan house furniture and furnishings are no less interesting. Other strong this spot that no such I do my impression. However there are old houses can often only up to second floor, looking out from a balcony.

  • Visit on the run. A group of tourists chase each other. The hostess debit you a comment to any tank. I have the impression of being a Japanese who visited Europe in a week. But I don't want to be a party pooper, go not to take lessons in case of floods when the oceans will rise 2 meters due to global warming.

  • The House while a certain charm but you pay to enter a store invaded by tourists. The factory remains to sneak off for to get rid of the saleswoman, while nice, and speaking a good french, but programmed to make you absolutely in the store. No interest

  • 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
  • Nothing much interesting here. Where could be some pictures or explanations, there is a lots of selling crafts and mosaic. Not worth a ticket.
