nice old house

This is a nice old house in the old quarter that you should not miss as the typical characteristic of thousand old houses in Hoi An still well protected.

The most interesting thing was the flood levels marked on the walls. Having paid for entry as part of the Old Town entry fee, I didn't expect to be asked for donations or to buy unrelated trinkets in each of the rooms we were shown. This did not seem representative of how the town people lived, just how the rich... More

I stopped here at midday, so first thing i do is only sit down in front of the fan. Not so much thing you can do here, just sightseeing the furniture from the past and buy stuff in the back of the house. I don't get much information about the house from the staff since they're not answer any of... More

We stopped by at the old house of Tan Ky at midday or so when nobody was there. We were told to sit down in those pretty old chairs. We did not know what to expect and since the lady did not say anything we started exploring to find the back part area was closed to visitor - fortunately so... More

This Tan Ky old house does not allow you to go upstairs as it's still occupied by the family. They also seem more interested in selling you chinese coins as lucky charms. Really takes away the real reason why a tourist would want to visit such an ancient place. Disappointing. There's a short introduction by the staff as to the... More

The house encompasses elements of Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese, which made it rather interesting. The 5-10 min quick introduction about the house was useful and insightful. After the introduction, we were left to wonder around the small house mostly on our own. Yes, they do try to sell souvenirs but they aren't too pushy, so it was not too unpleasant.

We wanted to view the house but we were ushered in after cutting our tickets to sit down for a talk in groups. Then we had to follow the lady around. They sell souvenirs inside so it was any opportunity to try and squeeze in a sale. Is this sight seeing or shopping?

Worth the 10 mins to listen to the guide about the house. Amazing to see how often it has had the whole of he ground floor flooded, even as recently as 2013. Interesting to see how they rescue the furniture when this happens. Shame about the 'tacky' coins and good luck charms they sell you thoug as this makes it... More

It is one of the must visit place in Hoi An Ancient town, as you only get to choose 5 attractions out of 9 from the single ticket you purchased with 110,000 VND, i chose Tan Ky old house as one of them. Not getting any regrets to visit the wooden house and the nice lantern decoration in house. with... More

Just a small Hall and a courtyard with family portraits and heirlooms on display. The family is still using the house so the rest of the house is not accessible to the visitors.
