“Rich family!”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

The house clearly belonged to a rich family and that shows! But definitely worth the visit!
Very impressive: the flood marks on the groundfloor that clearly show that Hoi An has a growing problem...

Reviewed December 20, 2013

The ticket for the Old Town includes this house. Certainly do not walk past without a visit. The architecture is interesting
