Ancient House at 87 Ma May St

A taste of Hanoi's vanishing heritage

What we say: 4 stars

If you plan on visiting Hoi An, or have already done so, you'll recognise this as a trader house in very much the same style of building you'll find in the historic quarter of that well-preserved city. This is one of the few intact remains of an old-style home open to the public in Hanoi.

Initially the house had only one family in residence, but from 1954 to 1999 five families lived in the house. Renovated in 1999, it's still an excellent glimpse into Hanoi's rapidly vanishing architectural heritage, although is mostly given over to displays of souvenirs.
