  • If you take the cyclo was taken to the kitchen. Here is not supposed to be. Going in, some women are sitting in the garden, here is a greeting with the Vietnamese ignored. No smile. One who will guide you and me so will detail in English there are good. Just remember to say just does not answer the questions. Because this guide comes much recommended various souvenirs in our slowly observed. By the way... If it is better if you like making sure the place is having a tell to go ahead around by cyclo, arrived. Also told showed with a smile! Out of order, saying take different was sick.

  • Ancestral hall although not large, but can see the displayed family ancestral temple in Vietnam, just as we in the same Ting to her country country songs that kind of sense out of charity, could feel the Chinese people in Vietnam to survive about a different relationship is inseparable.

  • The family home of Tran is for me the most beautiful of the old houses in Hoi an with a beautiful garden. You can get a friendly and interesting tour. Of course attempting also to sell something one at the end. Will you blame the owners? The showrooms are arranged behind the showrooms, Tan KY - but - unlike than in the House which is less annoying. To be sold, in addition to the usual souvenirs, old artifacts that should come from family-owned.

  • Small but pretty. You can also get some information about the building.
  • Commercial merchandise and souvenirs place. Not worth a visit...
  • One of the more informative of the historic "places of interest" in Hoi An. The guide was detailed and thorough instead of robotic like those found at some of the other more frequented places. A beautiful house serving as a family shrine with detailed architecture and a rich history. A real downside was the over-the-top push to sell stuff from their much larger than necessary souvenir shop.
  • Interesting building, but 90% of the tour was a sales pitch for the tourist souvenirs they had on sale throughout the building.
  • Another tourist trap where they try to sell you stuff! If you have a spare ticket and a few spare minutes, you could pop in here. But otherwise it isn't worth making a trip there

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.
