  • Odd one this. The chapel part is just that, a shrine to honour their ancestors. It's legitimate and a wonderful insight into a families history. The building is quaint and small and the girl who guide...  more »
  • This really didn't feel much like a home. I would have not used a ticket for this place if I had known they seemed more interested in selling than anything else. 
  • I thought of visiting this place as I have the same last name as this family. But it was a disappointing experience. The person who greeted us gave us a monotonous intro, which I later realized was al...  more »

  • 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.
  • You'll get all the explanations from staff who speaks English French and maybe other languages. They will also try to sell some stuff at the end.
  • Nice place to look at old Hoi An. Entrance is not free...
  • It is one of the places to which you have access with the ticket of the ancient city of Hoi An. Choose 5 sites. This was our 5th. It is a house where still today live the Tran family. This beautifully preserved, has great mix of styles, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, you don't visit only but with a member of the family which explains to you and it takes you to the end to a store in which everything have to sell... we didn't want to buy anything and was a little uncomfortable...

  • Small dark House, the whole point of incomprehensible 2 minute story boiled down to "go to our gift shop". Not worth wasting the ticket 😞
