Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion
*Picture available in website
In the late 19th century, prominent businessman Cheong Fatt Tze began work on his prized Mansion for his descendants, imagining it to be greater than his ancestral home back in Tai’Pu. By shipping artisans from China and bringing in materials from Europe, what resulted was an eclectic blend of traditional architecture with modern comfort. Fondly nicknamed ‘The Blue Mansion’, this grand building remained the pride of the owner and all who lived in it. With the passing of the mansion from family to conservationists, this historically and beautifully restored piece of history stands as icon of Penang with its unique heritage charm.
