A souvenir shop disguised as a family worship house. Hard sell. Little of interest. Lucky I split my "cookie" with my wife. Even the night market stalls are more professional.

There are a lot of tourist traps in SE Asia, but this might be the worst because it is so brazen and unexpected. Anyone who thinks this was worth their time hasn't traveled enough in SE Asia and seen real temples and chapels that are simply there to be enjoyed, rather than the hard selling pitch. there is nothing interesting...

This is sold as part of the tour of old Hoi An, where you're meant to see old houses, temples, etc. This place is nothing but a shop where your guide (you get one whether you want one or not) will quickly rush you through the "chapel" (the size of a nice hotel's bathroom) and then immediately being pressuring you...

We had a final ticket to use in the last hour of our stay and stumbled on this temple. It was early morning and we were the only tourists. A young girl welcomed us in and offered us cookies. She then began to explain the architecture of the building and the family history in excellent English. She guided us through... More

This building is fine but it is clearly just a way to get customers into the souvenir shop which is its main purpose. I would much prefer to pay more to see the building and be spared the hard sell. Unless you are really thick skinned I would avoid.

this is a beautiful space, but we were basically held hostage and taken through a maze of rooms while they tried to sell us the same trinkets that they sell all over ancient town. it was so odd! my husband and I walked in and gave them our tickets, then a disinterested young woman proceeded to give us a half-hearted...

Interesting to see an ancestor worship shrine. A bit of a hard sell on the artefacts and tourist tat.

Very pretentious & unfriendly host. Initially the lady host was trying to be informative --only for 5 minutes . Then she led you through rooms to sell you coins & other souvenirs . Her face turned 'black' when she realised we are not interested in her souvenirs . Terrible place to visit. Really spoilt the reputation of Hoi An. Don't... More

This is part of your Hoi An old town ticket entry. Definitely worth a quick look if you're into history. But no need to linger too long. There are a number of souvenirs you can buy in this place, if you want. But I would go in here with a guide as a preference, as they can really give you... More
