Would love to spend more time here. Our guide brought us here on a rainy and crowded day. I wasn't sure what it was and just followed. Lots of old Chinese antique relics inside and probably worth a lot. Seemed like it had been through many flooding incidents with water level markings through the years. Will definitely come back if... More

The inside gives a glimpse of what the inside of a prosperous home looked like in the past. Very crowded when we were there.

If you are already in the area it was ok. But wouldn't buy a ticket just to enter here. The "Tour guide" at the house seemed to give up halfway through, and then just walked us to the gift shop then left us alone.

It's inside the Hoi An ancient town right next to the Japanese bridge. There's staff their to educate you about the history of the house and traditional handmade things. There are some souvenirs for you to look around. The house is the oldest house in the area and the owner was a Chinese merchant who sell herbs and drugs during... More

It was interesting to see the old houses of the ancient city. We were with a larger tour group (16 people) and it was at times hard to hear the guide to fully understand the significance of the house. The guide spent probably half of the tour explaining the significance of the Chinese zodiac years and then encouraged us to... More

This house was quite interesting from the perspective of how much family pride they have in the house and its heritage. The house is still occupied and run by family after 7 generations. Just look at the pics on the walls. Fascinating to see how they handle flooding too -- sorry not spoiling that... it's really interesting.... go see.

I visited Tan Ky House as part of an evening walking tour of the Hoi An Old Town with a group of 30 people. This place is way too small for 30 people. We couldn't all fit into the main area of the house, let alone do any exploring before the next group came in. This isn't a mark against... More

Tan Ky House can be entered from the Riverfront street or from one of the Main Streets. This attraction has the largest souvenir selection that we saw (we did not visit the Museum). No restrooms. The ticket taker will clip off one of the 5 coupons attached to the 24-hour pass that costs 120,000 dong ($5.25 US Dollars). One of... More
