Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion
Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion has been gloriously restored, rightly earning prestigious accolades for tourism & conservation including an UNESCO heritage award.
Built in the late 19th century by a rich merchant of Chinese Hakka descent, this was his favourite residence and home to wives No.3, 6 & 7, & his 8 children.
Covering 56,000 sq.ft / 6000 sq.m it fuses Feng Shui and traditional Chinese design with European influence - which was extremely popular with western-admiring capitalists of the period. Opulent, lavish, beautiful!
Featured in the Oscar-winning movie 'Indochine', the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion is now part-hotel part museum. The iridescent indigo blue walls & decadent ornamentations can make for stunning colour images.
