  • Lovely old Hoi An house to visit. You can get a ticket for 120kVND and visit 5 sites out of a selection of 22 in the area. It's worth it and gives you a purpose for walking around and it helps maintaining the historical sites.
  • Best of the ancient houses (the others were too busy and/or just a facade for a shop).
