Once upon a time the house of a wealthy Vietnamese merchant, the Tan Ky House is a lovely 18th century mansion that has been lovingly restored to its former glory. A recommended Hoi An hotel to lodge in while visiting here is Anantara Hoi An Resort known amongst many to be a Hoi an Spa resort that will guarantee you a comfortable stay.
Even today, shopkeepers in Hoi An are seen to be residing above their shops despite the declining business and recurring floods and this is the case with the owners of the Tan Ky House as well. Located at the heart of the Hoi An Old Town, the quaint doorway, the dark timber façade and the charming inner courtyard typical of the Chinese-Fukkein design are bound to enchant anyone who ever crossed its threshold.
