I've been there with my friend and this is the second time I've visited this place. There are many acient stuff inside and you can see how rich the house owner is. Although this is a tiny house, this is a ideal destination for whom love history

Do you believe he spent 5 ton of gold on entire his life and now nothing for his kids. This is a south people type, for friend they can spend all money they have and never think about tomorrow.

Well preserved house of the Prince of Bac Lieu

Although the museum was very crowded on the Sunday we visited, we got a good sense of what his life was about. No English information available. One of our party could speak Vietnamese so she translated information relayed by a tour guide. Apparently more quite during the week.

BAC LIEU province (l was born at Tac Say village, Gia Rai district, Bac Lieu)
After breakfast we headed to the richest coastal province in the Mekong Delta. There are a lot of places tourists can visit but I just can list three attractions that I experienced when we stopped by only.
A. Devotion to Father Trương Bửu Diệp, the martyred priest.
Father Diệp was our family's friend and he himself batized five of my brothers and sisters and me. He was killed during the war on12 March 1946 in Tac Say village. His tomb has been a sacred place visited by Catholics, Protestants and non-believers. The members of the Tac Say parish and those who were blessed and healed said that miracles have happened and seriously sick people have been miraculously recovered. Father Diệp helped the poor, the elderly and the orphans.
The Congregation for the Cause of Saints has given the green light to the case of canonization of Father Francis-Xavier Trương Bửu Diệp who sacrificed his life to defend or protect his parishioners.
B. The House of Cong Tu* (the Son of the rich Landlords) Bac Lieu.
Tourists can visit or stay at this house which was converted into a hotel that offers guests an experience/opportunity to know better about lives of the rich people/landlords who enjoyed fancy/lavish lifestyles in the Southern VIetnam during the French colonial period in the early 1900's.
C. Ancient longan orchards and a 300-year-old mango tree.
The orchards were created about 200 years ago by the first Vietnamese pioneers on the wild land along the coast but the center of attraction of this orchard is a 300-year-old mango tree that still produces thousands of mangoes year round.

Historical place!

This house is belong to the famous man who spent his money carelessly. He is very famous for burning the 100 dollar note to find the 1 dollar note several decades ago! He passed away, leave his son in a big debt. Now only his niece leaves near the house, but he is very poor. The house belongs to the goverment and is opened for tourist at weekday. This is built at early 90s but still in very good condition at present. Most of its interior was imported oversea.
You can visit to know more stories about this house.
