“A beautiful building, spoilt by a sales pitch”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

This is a major tourist trap. Taken in to see the ancient building (family home) you are quickly herded to a back room to see hand-crafted table-cloths (for sale), then whisked upstairs which is purely & simply a well stocked craft shop.

“I'd take a pass on this one”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Didn't think this family chapel was worth the price of a ticket. Not much to see although they do have lots of old coins & souvenirs to purchase!

“Disappointing souvenir visit”
Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Very nice old house, but after 1 minute bad English explication of which we hardly understood one word, we we're taken into the large souvenir shop...
Very disappointing to pay with an old town ticket and end up (like always in Vietnam) in a pushy shop...

“Worth a look”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

This will cost you 1 old town ticket & I think it's worth using. Someone who lives there will give you a little run down on the history which is nice, though the tour ends in their shop.

“And a store as well”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Funny how you get to pay to visit an old family home and you'll find a store in the back where they want to sell you the same coins they sell outside and some jade and trinkets too.
