Old House of Tan Ky, Hoi An

3.4
Historic Site · Tourist Spot
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.

  • 18th century merchant's house in very good condition. Not big but full of original features and furniture. Think there is a guide available but I was happy to just look at the lovely carved wood details and to see just how open air the lifestyle here is (surprising for a North European!) Open courtyard in the middle of the building let's the light flood in and marks on the walls show where the water floods in as well.
  • Small house with very interesting architecture. It can be quite busy/crowded inside so it is best to go when there are fewer people.
