Odd one this. The chapel part is just that, a shrine to honour their ancestors. It's legitimate and a wonderful insight into a families history. The building is quaint and small... read more

Odd one this. The chapel part is just that, a shrine to honour their ancestors. It's legitimate and a wonderful insight into a families history. The building is quaint and small and the girl who guided us was friendly and if you asked her questions she would try to answer them. The gift shop bit is kinda weird but even... More

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.

My experience at the Tran historic home was slightly different to the other reviewers. My guide was helpful and took the time to explain about the architectural styles of the home and some of the history of the family. She then proceeded, as is standard at this place, to show me through the very large gift shop and tried to... More

You will see a small chapel (of no historical significance) and then led through rooms upon rooms of merchandise and pressured to buy things. Skip this place.

This was an interesting find. You need a ticket to enter. Use 1 of the 5 that come with your Hoi An old city entrance ticket. It is still a lived in family home. The daughter is the guide and she speaks relatively good English. She will tell you some of the history of her family home, as we'll as... More

As soon as you enter you will be accosted by a "guide". They will escort you through. Ours got visibly annoyed when I didn't keep up but rather took my time looking. Their main interest is in selling faux artifacts. Once they know you're not buying they lose interest. Setting aside that (!) the house is actually quite interesting once... More
