You get a taste of the old life & the family history. The construction & architecture are nice. The unfortunate part is it all leads into a shop of tourist nic naks you can't avoid.

This is cute little 'temple'. One of the girls told me the whole story. Very kind and informative. A little pushy in the shop.

This is a shop disguised as a family home. After a short story about the house we were led along series of souvenirs we were supposed to buy. Not worth a visit...

As with many of the other reviews (which we only read afterwards), the interesting side of the visit was diluted by the guides very clear intention to direct us to the range of gifts and paintings available. If we had been left for a few minutes to enjoy the architecture and ambience of the building, our attitude may have been... More

Our last stop on the old town ticket and the one we enjoyed the most informative girl, little biscuit and genuinely seemed pleased to see us.

This is my family temple. To those who said it is not worth while, it is a temple meant to honor ancestors. It was not meant to be a tourist attraction, nor was it meant to have a gift shop. The temple is merely there to show my family's history. What did you all expect from a place that was... More

This is, as the name suggests, an old family home with a chapel dedicated to the deceased members of the Tran family. It's quite small but has a lovely decor inside and as it's A) free and B) located just off the main street in Hoi An it's worth popping in just for a few minutes. We got a tour... More

Like many of the other attractions, you don't need more than a few minutes here. The guide gives a brief history (I found her English a little difficult to understand), but most of the time is spent in the gift shop, and the guide seemed miffed that I wasn't interested in buying anything. I found Tan Ky and Duc An... More

You get a quick 2 minute explanation and are then taken into the gift shop before the guide hurries off to deal with the next person. This was pretty much the same routine for all the Pagodas so it was disappointing

We enjoyed our visit, the guide was very friendly and informative. The house is pretty but not breathtaking. The coin collection is very interesting, it stretches pretty far back into history. The gift shop is larger than the chapel, but interesting in its own right. No pressure to buy, fun to look around briefly. Not bad if you're in the... More
