“Better than some of the others”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Most of the ancient houses that you can visit using the paid coupons are more like gift shops. at Tan Ky house, take a minute to admire the architecture and the horrible flood levels before making your way out. Should not spend more than 30min here.

“I agree with most reviewers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I was really interested in visiting this house after reading a blurb in the local guide. I should have checked with TripAdvisor. The house has potential to be quite interesting but the current intent is to use it to attract tourists so they can be sold junk. The history took less than 5 minutes - just pointing put a few things of note - they could have been much more informative but were more interested in selling coins. If you weren't buying they weren't interested and went on to the next tourists. If you really want to go, allow 15 minutes and keep your hands in your pockets.

“Interesting to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Was an experience to walk through and see some old history but it felt more like a shop for selling wares than a piece of history. The children could not get out quick enough
