Tan Ky Old House
As an integral part of Hoi An’s visual charm, Tan Ky Old House is featured on most tours of Hoi An Ancient Town. A popular choice among first-time visitors is a half-day walking tour, which allows travelers to cover the main attractions of the UNESCO World Heritage Site on foot for a more intimate glimpse into the area. If you’re on a time budget, opt for a day trip that combines a tour of Hoi An with a visit to Da Nang for an interesting contrast.

How to Get There
Tan Ky Old House is located at 101 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, in the center of Hoi An Ancient Town. Due to the Old Town’s restrictions on vehicles, you can access the house on foot or by bicycle. In order to skip the hassle of navigation, most travelers visit the house as part of a guided tour.
