Ancient House Reviews
We visited this Ancient house whilst of a free walking tour of the old quarter. Though there are some information boards, I would really recommend having a guide to really get the most out of this... more »
Very close to our hotel we stopped in and found a great glimpse of 18th century architecture. Formerly a merchant's home we saw what life may have been like a couple hundred years ago... more »
This place has an entry fee of 10,000 dong. A very simple looking house with a very rich history. I got to see things which were used by Vietnamese in the old times like their utensils, dining area , kitchen , the place has a very interesting story to know which you can hire a guide there to explain you things better. Don’t buy anything from inside because I felt it was a bit pricey.
A well-preserved house showing the unique style of houses in Hanoi a long time ago. You will learn here an interesting information on why their houses have a narrow facade. The 10,000 VND entrance fee was worth it.
