Walking through the streets of Penang, it's hard to miss the triangular indigo roof of Cheong Fatt Tze's Blue Mansion. Only open for tourists at certain slots during the day (guided tours only), this is definitely a great way to immerse yourself in between hawker food of Penang's rich history. The tour guides are great and speak good English and...

Walking into the Blue Mansion really does take your breath away. It's a beautiful property with a sense of serene grandeur that photos don't *quite* do justice. Every courtyard, corridor, staircase and room just looked beautiful. The feeling of tranquility was such a contrast to the hustle and bustle of George Town. There is a new pool that is opening...

There is a wealth of information about the house on hand, including a small interpretive display and guided tours. The house was restored by heritage architects over 5 or 6 years in the 1990's when it was...

Very beautiful place with a rich history to it. The close-to-Pernankan experience was awesome with a rich architecture and straits born designs! Food was good. Breakfast selection limited but rest assured that it's very tasteful! Service was excellent esp Shiro who made our stay more than wonderful than it already was! I will definitely go back again!
