  • This is a guided tour. The first half of it was very nice and interesting. In the second half the guide is just trying to sell you some souvenirs in the back rooms of the chapel, which is very unprofessional considering that this is an official sight in the old town.
  • Small family chapel for family ancestors. Visitors are briefed about the building architecture and the meaning of the Chapel, and significance of some antiques. Good insight into culture and meaning of family chapels in Vietnam
