If Hoi An is where old Vietnam meets new, then Tan Ky House is the city’s nod to its most idyllic past. This well-preserved 18th century private home allows contemporary travelers a look into the life of Vietnamese merchants more than 200 years ago. Visitors can interact with the home’s current occupants. Anthropology lovers will appreciate the Chinese and Japanese artwork, as well as the watermarked walls—evidence of the structure and the family’s ability to persevere over Mother Nature.
Enjoy a cup of tea and take advantage of local
storytellers who can provide informative details about the history of
the home and the artwork it contains. Don’t miss the only Confucious Tea
Cup in the country, which is housed in Tan Ky. A single $5 USD ticket
gets you entry to any five heritage sites you choose.
