Never Blue at the Blue Mansion in Penang, Malaysia

Exploring the lavish former residence of Malaysia’s Cheong Fatt Tze.

While the tour only visits the central parts of the house (for the privacy of the hotel guests, primarily), it does effectively show the beauty and magnificence of the rooms. Fine details adorn everything from floor to ceiling, and must have taken thousands of hours to craft! Old pictures, traditional dresses and equipment, and old tools are also lined up behind glass cases for everyone to appreciated. It’s like taking a tour of the past and appreciating the vibrant culture which can still be felt throughout the entire mansion.
