This time,we choose this Blue mansion to have a visit, this mansion won "2000 UNESCO "Most Excellent" Heritage Conservation Award..You really shouldn't miss this...visit the best ancient Chinese architecture in Penang which about 200 years old..
You need to go on a tour, about an hour, twice a day which covers the "Fengshui" or geomancy aspects of the building. But photography is prohibited unless you stayed in. Luckily my little son Desmond followed through the whole tour for an hour, this is not an easy task for a 5 years old small boy.
I noticed that we were the only local visitor among the foreign visitors, is this due to local peoples don't really appreciate our own heritage ?
- Cheong Fatt Tze believed that there shouldn't any "T-junction" or "high building" block in front of their house according to "Feng Shui" concept, that's why he bought this piece of land in front of his house and built these five houses. These five houses currently turned to restaurant serving meals to visitors during their stay in this mansion.
