This place is pretty much one or two rooms. The shops in the back actually take up more space than the chapel itself. Would only recommend if you're particularly interested in history, especially the Tran Family or old coins and porcelain (oddly one of the rooms in the back has a rather large collection of both).

Good to still be able to see a small slice of a 200 year old history. Will still give some a interest into a family's life in that period of time. Still enjoyed

Very small place. First but was slightly interesting hearing about the family history but really it was all about wanting you to but something from their shop which was bigger than the house part you where shown around. Girl was not too pushy but list interest in you when she knew you were not going to buy.

There's really not much of interest here at all. Neither the exterior or interior are particularly noteworthy. There's a bunch of stuff inside they're trying to sell, but all fairly generic items.

The Tran family home was built by the affluent ancestor 10 generations ago according to the lady who is a decendant of the family. You catch a glimpse of the home of a high government official in the old days. A good place to visit.

The first 5 minutes are not bad at all! We were given some valuable information about the local architecture. But then, after throwing some coins, it was a souvenir selling tour. The guide did not push us to buy anything, but she seemed more and more bitter as we were interested in the items without any buying intention. In the... More

The girl taking us through was lovely however a big part of it was the gift shop. No pressure to buy anything but was a little weird

Odd one this. The chapel part is just that, a shrine to honour their ancestors. It's legitimate and a wonderful insight into a families history. The building is quaint and small and the girl who guided us was friendly and if you asked her questions she would try to answer them. The gift shop bit is kinda weird but even... More

This really didn't feel much like a home. I would have not used a ticket for this place if I had known they seemed more interested in selling than anything else.

I thought of visiting this place as I have the same last name as this family. But it was a disappointing experience. The person who greeted us gave us a monotonous intro, which I later realized was almost exactly the same as the brief description in the lonely planet guidebook. Then, she went on to describe the throwing of two... More
