Overview

Learn about a life of grandeur in 19th-century Penang on a 45-minute tour of Cheong Fatt Tze, aka the Blue Mansion. Book admission to the famed George Town landmark and gain insight into its eclectic architecture and heritage, based on the lavish lifestyle of its former resident.
  • 45-minute guided tour of the Blue Mansion in George Town
  • Learn about the opulent lifestyle of Cheong Fatt Tze
  • Discover period architecture and its influences
  • Admission ticket and tour included
While monumentally traditional in design, the Blue Mansion's eclectic architecture exemplifies 19th-century Malaysia, when the British Empire and Chinese kingdoms converged. Use your admission ticket for a 45-minute tour, conducted three times daily.
You'll wander through opulent courtyards and rooms once belonging to Cheong Fatt Tze, a legendary figure who held the monikers of 'Rockefeller of the East,' 'J.P. Morgan of China,' and the 'Last Mandarin and First Capitalist of China.'
Discover the architectural intricacy of his beloved mansion and the labor of love that went into the restoration of this now-iconic hotel. Learn how the design of the Blue Mansion demonstrated both Cheong Fatt Tze’s deepening fascination with Western artisanship and his rising stature as a Chinese official.

This tour was massively overpriced. If you queue at the gate you will pay RM17 so less than half the price of this trip. The building itself is beautiful but with the 100 people being shown round at the same time, it ends up being a boring experience with little ability to hear the guide nor see what they are talking about. Overall a massive waste of time and money.
