Old House of Tan Ky, Hoi An

3.3
#2 of 18 in Historic Sites in Hoi An
Maintained by seven generations, Old House of Tan Ky remains an excellent example of a merchant's residence tucked in a commercial port city. Regardless of huge annual floods and reported business declines, the wooden house still contains its original 18th-century details, both inside and out. As you explore the historic site, inspect the combination of Vietnamese, Japanese, and Chinese elements, such as the triple-beam structure, five round blocks, inscribed vertical panels, and furniture and roof decorated with intricate carvings. Nearby coffee shops offer cool refreshment and shade from the sun. For Old House of Tan Ky and beyond, use our Hoi An road trip planner to get the most from your Hoi An vacation.

  • This is one of the places included when you buy the pass before entering the old town. It is well worth the stop to see the interior decor whit some of the fine, old furniture.  more »
  • Buy the 150,000d Old Town Pass, it allows you free entrance to 5 historic sites. It's a donation to help resoration efforts.  more »
  • Confection in the revival has been published in the furnishings and obsolete columns record flooding several times when water has overflowed its banks so far is impressive. I don't feel material such as photographs were confined into the Group thing slowly and watch carefully. Some seem better as you manage the number.

  • House of a rich family, so this is not how a typical Vietnamese live in the past but rather a wealthy family. There are a good collection of artefacts and personal items too. Interesting place to look around.
  • While the house is nice, it's best to visit just one of the houses while on a hoi an guided tour.. The history and stories are kinda the same..
  • We enjoyed this place the most out of all the houses we visited. The guide gave us some interesting information, including about the floods.
  • Not too bad. Worth a look if you are in the area.
  • Nothing special. Nice, but small. Maximum 2 min in there.
