A bit disappointing as most of the house is closed off. Compared to other houses we went into and the restaurants I would say go elsewhere. Also their opening hours vary to what the sign says so just take your chance.

The house is neat to see. The tour is free, so why not go? It also doesn't take very long. WE were shuttled in by a staff person quickly and given a 3 minute description of the different archtectural styles in the house. We were then shown some coins and pushed a bit to buy some zodiac necklaces. 30 seconds of flood discussion, then "That is your tour, have a good day."

This has the potential to be really good. It's a nice old house with beautiful wooden beams and lots of artefacts. However, the tour you're forced into takes 5 mins, most of which is you being told very very quick things and then told to "come here please" without any time to look around. Then the guide takes you to a table and asks everyone what year they were born in so she can tell them whether it's monkey, dog etc and then try and sell them a pendant. They literally just start asking people directly if they want to buy while everyone is still in a big group, making the chances of selling anything rather low. My suggestion - go in and look around and try and ignore the tour as much as possible!

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.
