Delightful, but I couldn't understand some of the description given by the Vietnamese girl presenter. So what! - it is ancient, historic, dark wood panelled, and full of atmosphere. You could do it in 10 minutes, or stay half an hour or more. You should not miss calling in here.

A guide from the family that has owned the house for 8 generations gave us a brief bit of info (the house is old, some is Japanese, Chinese, and Vietnamese style, and they go upstairs when it floods) about the place and a lot of pressure to buy the hand crafts upstairs.

Lovely old house, in the typical old style of Hoi An. Lots of charm with little indoor courtyard and beautiful dark wood interior with intricate carvings. I think it would be hard to find this type of architecture anywhere elsel. Quite unique.

A 300 year old wooden house. Regularly flooded but the wood survives these floods. Interesting architecture and design. Same family of traders have lived here for generations. They see your visit as a selling opportunity for various embroidery'd goods and lacquer ware. So you have to accept their sales pitches during your 10 minute visit.

A nice, well preserved old house in The Old Quarter of Hoi An. Not so inpressive as other old houses there, but still worth a few minutes visit while walking the city.

It is located near the Japanese Bridge. You should take a short tour if you buy a ticket. The house is old and there is something for you to get and buy there. Staff is active and happy to provide you what you need. Good place to see!

Well-preservation, friendly staff, nice artchitecture that all we though about Phung Hung. Looked like serveral places in Hoian, they also sell a lot of things inside. However, they greeted and invite us very respectfully. We did not fell any inconvenience. Explore Hoian Town, Old House of Phung Hung will be a must see.

This is really a beautiful shop with assistants telling you about the architecture in the spare moments between telling you what is for sale.
