  intricate mother of peal table and chairs

When you purchase your city ticket for 50,000 dong, you can choose from a number
of Old Houses. One complaint with this system is it forces you to buy more than
one ticket or to pay extra to see more of these fantastic glimpses into the past
history of Hoi An. I, for one, would rather go to more of the houses than the
elaborate but, for my tastes, ostentatious Chinese meeting halls. We did check
out two of the houses and Tan Ky was the most impressive for the interior decorations. This elaborate table of mother of pearl was a true highlight. Perhaps the most memorable thing about these incredible homes is their inner courtyards. Though well in the busy Old Town, you find such tranquility in them. You can also enjoy the intricate wooden carving that is traditionally the hallmark of these stunning architectural marvels.

Address: 101 D Nguyen Thai Hoc
Directions: Tan Ky in on the waterfront though the entrance you must use is on D Nguyen Thai Hoc. It is one of the great streets of the Old Town that cannot be missed.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
