The architecture is stunning. But what impresses more is its garden with caves. It is a small but every corner of it is a photographic beauty. Wonderful bonsai trees deserve a special attention.

Spent about two hours at this residence. Was a bit of a maze but quite interesting to see a more traditional Chinese dwelling. Parking can be challenging.
