Nothing like a family business run from the family home when the house is the business. I thought this place was really cool. We enjoyed a drink, the commentary and the purchase of a souvenir. When we visited it was very busy and a bit...More

We love seeing the old ways people lived. This home is in great shape and super well preserved. Check out the FLOOD level marks in the back of home.

It is only a small attraction, but a nice part of historic Hoi An. We found it to be an interesting house, preserved well, with staff to explain how the merchandise is hurriedly hauled upstairs during times of flooding.

This old house is OK. There’s a lot of dark wood so it seems a bit dark and dreary. It’s also very crowded as it has a good reputation but I feel that it falls a bit short. Hoi An regularly suffers from flooding and...More

Its supposed to be one of the oldest houses in Hoi An. Apparently the family still live upstairs as the place floods regularly. Interesting to go inside.

You can't miss this old house in Hoi An ancient town. The location is by the river and near the restaurant row. Tan Ky Merchant house is a nice stop to explore the old house in that era.

You will need to buy the tourist ticket to access the inside of this house, these are available at the beginning of the Ancient Town. The house is clearly old and does contain many original features so worth looking at.

Tan Ky Merchant House is a nice stop. This is an example of a family being relatively well-off from that era. That they are able to keep the abode in much the same fashion is nice. You are able to see much of the first...More

A must see when in Hoi An. Brings centuries of history close to today. The markings of the flooding gives you a very good idea on how much the water actually covers when the area is flooded. They needed to close the old town of...More

Nice way to escape the heat while walking around the old town. Super cool to walk in to the original old house. You can get nice pictures of this from the other side of the river. It’s a bit surprising to see the water levels...More
