This is one site that justifies the visit. It is a charming and quaint piece of Hoi An's history that should not be missed

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.
