As part of your ticket into the old town this is one of the buildings you can visit. It is an architechtural marvel, and well worth the visit if you're into architechture and history. You will likely walk past it a few times when you're walking around Hoi An!

We preferred this old house to the Tan Ky example. It was better to be able to visit the upper level and gain a full perspective of the building. I feel the value of the old houses is helping visitors to gain a better feel for the historical tapestry of Ho An rather any architectural merit they have in themselves.... More

A well maintained house showing the style of the times. Lovely courtyard. Well maintained and gives a good impression of how the houses used to be like.

This is both a museum and a family dwelling. A member of the family will show you around the residence explaining various aspects of their home and lifestyle now and in by gone times. The family produce hand embroidered table clothes which are for sale on the lower floor. Interesting and worth a visit.

House is very nice with great history.Once in you are handed over to one of the "family" who brings you through the house - telling the 7 generation history and trying at every turn to sell you something. Basically this historic building is a tourist shop with a cover charge.

When you cross the Japanese Covered Bridge and come out this house is on the right. It is one of the old houses you can visit in Hoi An and unlike Tan Ky you can go to the upper level. Nice view out to the street from the upper level too. We used our tickets to visit this house, the... More

Like the other old houses open to the public in Hoi An, the house of Phung Hung is also a shop selling table cloths etc. They weren't the sort of thing I wanted to buy and once a I had made that clear the sales girls let me wander around without bothering me. There's plenty to see though none of... More

Again one of the narrow houses which goes back a long way. This is due to the price of frontage and also good luck. Again see how high the river floods especially at houses near the water.

If you like old houses , and you want to feel history this is a very charming place . A bit rickety but that is part of the charm . Look closely at the walls, the architecture to truely appreciate the skills of carpenters long ago

Amazing little house where the famous merchant lived; enfront, his business, then the courtyard with the well where all their water was kept, and in the back, where the family lived. Beautiful black and engraved furniture, lamps, and many Vietnamese porcelain artifacts..
