130-year old house in Mekong Delta

Location: Located in Binh Thuy Ward, 5km from the center of Cantho City.
Characteristics: The 130 year ancient house is a very beautiful residence imbued with features of the southern
delta. The owner of this ancient house is respected Mr. Duong Minh Hien, an old sentimental man, by chance, remaining in the 20th century. It is just thanks to its maintained ancientness that this house was chosen as one of recording sites for the romantic film “Lover” of producer J. Annaud.

The native homeland of the Duongs’ family was originally in Nha Man, Dong Thap Province, but they moved to Binh Thuy, Cantho and installed themselves here more than 100 years ago. They are so considered as “creators of heaven and earth” in this region. By the end of 19th century,  the construction was started in 1870 on an area of approximately 8,000m². According to respected Mr. Duong, at that time, a master with the name of Ba Nghia - but people used to call him by master Lo Ban -a talented nativeman in this region,  was in charge of buliding the house.
