I would recommend this place if you're into art/architecture or shopping. You do need to use one of the sightseeing tickets to get in and there is a shop in the back. The house it's self isn't particularly large but it does have some fascinating architecture and art. If you haven't had a 'guided tour' to explain the different cultural... More

We were welcomed with a cup of tea and waited for the guided tour .... all good so far. The we had what can only be described as a very cursory tour and then they tried to sell us 'lucky coins' and as there were no takers we were left to look around and found ourselves in the gift shop... More

Nice to be able to go inside one of the original houses and understand it's history and see it's layout - it's so much larger than expected with an indoor courtyard and has been in the same generations family for years

Interesting to see the way old buildings and houses were set up. The visit is a bit commercial as it is a shop with things to sell. Been in the same family for many generations

We were swept in and sat down to hear a very brief history of the house amid a hubbub of talking in a variety of other languages and then ushered through to try to be pursuaded to buy Chinese year signs. When we went in there were many tourists but it thinned out and we retraced our steps and had... More

Expect to be treated with utter contempt and disrespect. The staff member who provided us with information inside the house was shockingly rude. She ordered us around, was abrupt, unpleasant and clearly contemptuous of us. We soon walked away from them. Following a 2 minute self-tour, we walked out. There's little to see in Tan Ky and it is simply... More

Part of our Wendy Woo tour. What a magnificent small building. Has been flooded out but the wood (iron wood?) sill as good as day one. What a marvelous piece of heritage

A definite must visit to view the ancient house and learn the history of Hoi An and their early founders. Well preserved and there were many guided tours.

This place gives us an idea of how people live in Hoi An. It is well-preserved and the owner is very helpful. Location is also very convenient.

This old house has been built before two centuries and has changed 7 generations. The last one occupies the first floor whilst ground floor is visitors attraction. House doesn't have any windows and patio or small garden is only place with natural lights. On ground floor they are selling souvenirs and try to convince you to purchase zodiac jewellery.
