There's really not much of interest here at all. Neither the exterior or interior are particularly noteworthy. There's a bunch of stuff inside they're trying to sell, but all fairly generic items.

The Tran family home was built by the affluent ancestor 10 generations ago according to the lady who is a decendant of the family. You catch a glimpse of the home of a high government official in the old days. A good place to visit.

The first 5 minutes are not bad at all! We were given some valuable information about the local architecture. But then, after throwing some coins, it was a souvenir selling tour. The guide did not push us to buy anything, but she seemed more and more bitter as we were interested in the items without any buying intention. In the... More

The girl taking us through was lovely however a big part of it was the gift shop. No pressure to buy anything but was a little weird

This really didn't feel much like a home. I would have not used a ticket for this place if I had known they seemed more interested in selling than anything else.

I thought of visiting this place as I have the same last name as this family. But it was a disappointing experience. The person who greeted us gave us a monotonous intro, which I later realized was almost exactly the same as the brief description in the lonely planet guidebook. Then, she went on to describe the throwing of two... More

If you've seen one family home, you've seen them all. Don't waste your 5 tickets on them all. I was first ushered in and offered a cookie. The lady began the short tour talking about the Vietnamese/Chinese/Japanese influences around the house. Then went into the chapel (no photos yet, only after the tour) talking about the Tran generations. The whole... More

it is an old bungalow house. it is walled and has a garden. there is also a gift shop inside which is a small tourist trap. or you can just buy to help maintain the place.

This is worth a visit as part of the 5 attractions you could choose as part of the Hoi An City entrance ticket. Fascinating to walk through a home eight generations later. There were snippets of interesting facts about the architecture which had Japanese and Chinese influences.
