Visited this ancient house while on walking tour. An amazing old house to see the flood lines on wall and the way it was built. Amazing.

Tan Ky is definitely worth a visit once in Hoi An. There's more to this beautiful small town than tailors and lamps - the history behind the doors of this old house is fascinating.

Like most tourist places, they are more interested in selling you items at the house than sharing info. Our guide gave us some info, but he was in a hurry to finish the tour and get rid of us
