Come Home to Historic Splendour 'ONE OF 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” Mansion 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; **Guided Tours; and Tailored Functions on its premises. Reputedly the favourite home of the “Last Mandarin and First Capitalist of China”, the Mansion is undoubtedly the favourite home of George Town.

The Blue Mansion is beautiful but I have a few problems with the tour. You only get to view three rooms in the mansion including the entrance and the air well. Be warned though half of the tour is spent standing in the entrance, listening...More

This house was recommended to me to visit by friends. I'm very interested in traditional Chinese architecture, so went on one of the mandatory tours. I understand why self-guiding is an issue here, given it is also a high-end guest house and the privacy of...More
