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

Not to challenge the facts said by local guide - swift shifted to merchandise area inside the old wood house. Guides are local nice Yong girls hard to understand for a western ear, but images lookout from their frames brings one into very old times. The 2 memories we have (2 days after) were: 1)Eastern human history with colorful portraits... 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

As part of the entrance ticket to Old Town Hoi An, you can tour the Tan Ki Ancient House. It was the home of a Vietnamese businessman and was built 2 centuries ago.

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

.. but a major stop for all the tourist groups. Very busy, and pretty much a vehicle for selling souvenirs. We really liked looking at the inside of the building, the furniture, and the actually historical things inside.

Lovely to see such an old house still as it was. Hosts very friendly and attentive with a lovely cup of jasmine tea served. Plenty of souvenirs being sold but prices much more expensive in the house than outside in markets.
