Phung Hung Old House

Nidhi Jakhodia
Next we visited couple of ancient houses - Tan Ky Ancient House and Phung Hung Ancient House. Tan Ky was built around two hundred years ago as home of a Vietnamese merchant. It is a well preserved house with the original interiors and furniture kept almost intact. Phung Hung is a two-storied house built in 18th century. The house has kept many old documents and handicrafts reflecting the culture and tradition of Vietnam. The architecture of both the houses reflects influence of three cultures- Japanese, Chinese and Vietnamese.
