“Beautiful temple worth a visit, a sanctuary in the Old Town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

This temple is in one of the main streets, very pretty. You need to have purchased tickets to get in worth buying a set of tickets which get you into the main bits in town. In this temple be aware you quickly go through to museum so will cost second ticket. Very tranquil. Pretty flowers and caged birds. Some of the planter areas quite interesting. Worth a visit

“A lively and Colourful Temple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This place struck me as very Chinese in style. As the festival of Tet was fast approaching, there were plenty of flowers and lanterns decorating the place. Tet is the Vietnamese word for Chinese New Year.The temple is over 200 years old and has been well preserved.

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Fascinating, and loved the gorgeous mosaic floors. Nice place, and a pleasant interlude. Dress appropriately (i.e. no shorts, halter tops or bare arms).

“Totally average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

In Hoi An, you can buy a ticket that is valid for five of the museums/old houses/churches/emporiums that line the old streets. Frankly, you don't need to spend your money on this if you have been to any other town with chinese houses in another city which was runnign a more lucrative trade a century ago.
You are better off just walking around, and spending this money on a coffee or a beer in one of the numerous cafés or restaurants.
If this is the first historic town with chinese influence, than by all means buy the ticket and visit the museums.
