LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

PENANG 2012 AND OUR FAVORITE ARCHITECTURE : CHEONG FATT TZE'S BLUE MANSION

"ONE OF THE 10 GREATEST MANSIONS IN THE WORLD" LONELY PLANET 2011

A Grand Mansion conceived and constructed by a Grand Man; an eminent edifice which History calls Home; a peerless representation of the Paradigm Chinese Courtyard House – the Cheong Fatt Tze Blue Mansions has been perfectly poised for over a century on firm foundations of architectural, cultural and historic superlatives.

Essentially an 'heirloom with rooms', today, the Mansion readily bequeaths its charms to visitors who are able to indulge in exclusive heritage homestays. Reputedly the favorite home of the "Last Mandarin and First Capitalist of China", the Mansion is undoubtedly the favorite home of George Town.

Daily guided heritage tours of the house (in English): 11am, 1.30pm, 3pm
Admission fee RM12 per person

The row of 5 houses opposite the mansion were the servants' quarters



 Photography is not allowed in the mansion and the above is a picture taken with the www.

The homestay was full at the time so we didn't have a chance to visit the rooms. Above is taken from the www.

We love the indigo color, do you? This trip really inspired us.
