Cantonese Chinese Community House – Hoi An, Vietnam

This picture has been taken in Hoi An. Hoi An is one of the only town in Vietnam that has been saved from the bombing during the Vietnam war. As a result the old town is still full of houses from the XVIII century that have been built by rich Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese merchant when Hoi An was still the biggest port of the South China Sea. The Chinese community was such that many community house have been built around town to allow Chinese people to gather. Each house is for the Chinese belonging to a the regions they originated (Cantonese, Hai Nam, Trieu Chau…)
