Can Tho visitors must go house-hunting

Binh Thuy District in Can Tho City is famous for its primitive landscapes, canals, orchards, ancient pagodas and of course historical homes.

The most famous is Duong’s family house (also called Binh Thuy Ancient House or Binh Thuy Orchid Garden) which is a must for visitors to Can Tho.

Located at 26/1A Bui Huu Nghia Street, Binh Thuy District, Can Tho City, it is one of the ancient houses in the city left completely intact.

Covering an area of 8, 000 square meters, the house is not only attractive because of its design which combines Vietnamese and French architecture, but also due to its wonderful garden with various flowers and fruits. It hosts a wide range of orchids and a record cactus together with seven rocks symbolizing seven heroes. Built around the late 19th century or early 20th century, the outside appearance of the house is French in design while the interior is Vietnamese in character. In the front of the brick house is a wide yard made of square bricks and surrounded by flowers and ornamental plants.

The interior of the house has five rooms which are equipped with beautiful ancient wood furniture like the beds and a large ancestral altar. It also has valuable antiques such as lamps, a wash basin and jars.

The house has a mystique of glamour thanks to the numerous local and foreign film directors who have chosen the house to shoot movies like French flick L’amant directed by J.J Annaud and Vietnamese films Chan Troi Noi Ay, Nhung Neo Duong Phu Sa, Cong tu Bac Lieu and Cay Tre Tram Dot. (Source: SGT)
