One of the oldest houses in the town and situated close to the Japanese bridge. You get to hear the story of the house then, surprise, surprise, the opportunity to buy from the in house vendors. That said my wife did pick up a lovely scarf at a good price.

You can visit this house on the same low price ticket used to fross the Japanese Bridge. Is it worth your time though. Well, yes the house is but the blatant sales pitch to buy souvenirs is a real turn off, especially as many of the souvenirs are available cheaper in other shops in Hoi An.

Unlike many other old houses, one gets to see a lot more here. Interesting old furniture, statues, crockery and cutlery. You get to buy some mementos and art pieces here at reasonable prices.

OK, the good things about this house are that it's beautiful inside and out and you can go up to the second floor and look down upon the street. Having said that, there are many such places in Hoi An you see beautiful interiors and hit the second level without wasting a ticket - the Reaching Out gift shop, for example. The moment you walk into the Phun Hung House, you get a cursory tour and then a long sales pitch for various embroidered products. The pitch doesn't stop when you say no. The "guide" will even follow you around. It was really hard to look around and enjoy the interior without being pestered. Such a shame - it's a beautiful place. Don't waste a ticket here!

The house by itself is nice but actually they just try to sell you their stuff.
Unpleasant presentation of the house
Really disappointing
