Old House of Tan Ky Hoi An Reviews
Old House of Tank Ky Jul 06, 2013
This old house is part of the 5 ticket entrance fee which we purchased to visit and we can choose from 10 different sites in Hoi An old town. When we enter the house, the Tan ky generation guide us and give information about the house.
The house was built in late 18th centuries and it reflects the combination of both Japanese and Chinese architectural.
There are four rooms in the Old House of Tan Ky. All these rooms are small in size, but packed with various beautiful antiques. These antiques are mainly made of wood. These four rooms are for four different purposes. One is for welcoming the Chinese merchants and the other are living room, courtyard and the bedroom. We can enter the other three rooms except the bedroom.
The beams of the roof are curve and they display some Chinese information in an elaborate way. On the other hand the peak roof bears Japanese characteristics in it and the Vietnamese crosshatch stands as a support to the roof of the old house. The walls of the house are also decorated with unique mosaic arts
