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.

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

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

A mildly interesting old house but not in the same league as the Tan Ky House. The architecture is interesting as it is different to other Vietnamese styles. The chapel has some significance relating to the anniversary of the death of one of the family where incense is burned and food offered. After a cursory look tour, we were shown... More

This is a small ancestor-workship chapel (I think there's a private home on the site but you don't get to see it) with architecure that's interesting but no different from that of other old houses in Hoi An. A guide takes you on a short tour then leaves you in the gift shop (which is bigger than the chapel) -... More

Small and lovely inside. Fantastic, actually. A guide gives you a very brief tour (5-8 minutes) then takes you to the back of the house which is a giant gift shop. A bit disappointing in that sense but there was zero pressure to buy so I just went back to the main room and took pictures.
