  • Explanations in a great french hostess places 9th generation of the tran family makes all the interest of this visit. She explains both the architecture of the places but also the traditions with the ancestors. Exciting stories. The part 2 directs you to the shop a bit, which breaks the spell. However, there is no pressure to buy. Much more enjoyed tam ky House where the guide shipped the explanations and the visit.

  • Worth a visit if you haven't already seen the rest of the city and the other more important things. The garden and the Interior of the House are nice but little else. Space is cramped.

  • 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.
