Ngoi Nha Di San House In Hanoi

Vietnam is hurtling into the 21st century and buildings are being torn down, redone, turned upside down for the sake of chasing the almighty Dong. Similar to Malaysia, the traditional low-rise architecture is shophouse in style. And it's becoming endangered.

Luckily, you can visit a beautiful old home that's now a museum. The Ngoi Nha Di San house is a fine example, built in the mid 1800s.

Front entrance. Humble.

Dining room. Upstairs, open air veranda. It's all about the ventilation.

The inner courtyard, the classic element of shophouse architecture.

Grand bedroom and rear deck.

The fancy sitting room.
