A view of times past

an excellent way to see how people lived in the 16th century as most of the house is how it would have been at that time

The residence of an old trading family perched on the banks of the river and getting cooling breezes. Very ornate interior.

We visited the Old House of Tan Ky during a multi-day visit to Hoi An, and if not to use a couple of the entry tickets to the 'sights' we would not have bothered. Upon paying for our tickets we were given a perfunctory tour by a clearly-bored guide which climaxed with a sales pitch to buy a medallion with... More

Guides talk you through some of the history and special features in the house as well as giving information not found in the guide books. The guides walk you through the house at a fairly brisk pace but then you are free to look around by yourself and take photos. They do try to sell you zodiac charms but for... More

The history of this house is very interesting and is explained by on site professional guides who are part of the ticket admission. This was my favorite of all old houses that my wife and I saw.

It's a house. It's an old house. If you are expecting anything more than that...you are bound to be disappointed. But this house in ancient Hoi An (A UNESCO Heritage site) has a rich history. The house is dark, braced with sturdy wooden beams that give the house a strong, dark character. The center of the house features a small... More
