Interesting site to visit if you have a tour guide telling you some stories... Very small place though, with a very small entrance fee. One would probably finish visiting in 20 - 30mins.

Located within the Old Quarter, this ancient house was built in the late 20th century. This restored house gives an insight into the lives of local merchants back in time. A small entrance fee is charged. Worth a visit if in the area.

This place was too crowded, there was no one (staff)to direct the flow of pedestrian traffic. The other tour guides were inconsiderate and just pushed their way through.
