Noted this in guide book then stumbled across. Simply presented and gives and good impression of middle class living and of the 'tube' type of house. The craft shop on the ground floor has some unusual and classy lacquer ware and jewellery.

This is typical ancient Vietnamese house. The tour guide there will explain carefully about the architecture and lifestyle in the old time. The ticket is about 10.000VND.

right on one of the main streets in old quarter - this little gem give a nice view of how Vietnamese life in the city was like long ago - the house is beautifully restored and is a classic shop house with a central atrium.

An interesting place to visit but more interesting with a free Hanoi guide to explain the culture and the significance of different aspects of the house. Well worth the entrance fee.
