It's part of the 90.000VND ($4.5) tourist ticket scheme. It's beautiful but pretty much consists of two rooms. Ground floor only, rest is still residential. Tea and concise presentation included.

Tip: buy the sightseeing ticket on the Information Center. Without it is impossible to visit the houses/ temple. All of them (except the Trieu Chau Assembly Hall) require it.
The Information Center staff is very rude.

They gave us a piece of paper with some facts about the house and they offered us some tea. This house is very tinny. But it's beautiful and well preserved. We could see some tea wear and furniture, namely a bed.

This is another great experience in Hoi An. The house was built from traditional materials by skilled local artisans and was influenced by Chinese and Japanese styles. The house had a large wooden door, but no window. Its charming and elegant designs give it a cozy aspect. In summer, the back door overlooks a wharf by the Hoi An River makes it cool, not hot at all. It is one of the must-see place if you visit Hoi An.

During walking time arround Hoi An Old Quater we visited this house. A guide went out to show us some informations of this house. She was very friendly and gave enough interesting info of this house. This is exactly old Viet Nam house style but there are smell inside. Its may from rain few days ago to make very wet in wall and wooden. They need to check and clean that smell before welcoming guest to there.

We didn't realize half the house was closed at lunchtime until after we handed over our ticket... As a result there was nothing more to see than what you could spot by poking your head in the front door. Most of the pictures and signs are of various heads of states visiting the house over the last 20 years, not much on the house itself
