  • Excellent tour, our guide was very informative, friendly and amusing. The Mansion is amazing, with a maze of rooms to explore and find out about the artefacts. Highly recommend a visit.

  • I highly recommend it to those traveling to Georgetown. You should never miss this attraction. Entrance fee is affordable at RM20 per adult and totally worth the price. We visited at 10am during a public holiday and just in time for a mandarin tour at 10.30am which is very informative. The mansion is so large that it is hardly noticeable from the outside, and I might have missed some areas without a guided tour. In addition, there are many antiques that are meticulously displayed. I really appreciate the effort of the current owner to preserve this historical and cultural heritage, and presented to the public.
  • Absolutely love this Mansion! Bring you back to the old days of how they live in a detailing life. Strong influence from their root Chinese & combined with local customs that became so unique in their way! Head to toes, living room to bed room, everything is an eyes opening. The truly "Crazy rich asian" Big thanks to our guide Ms May (Mandarin speaker) for such an informative journey there. English speaking is available too. Don't forget to drop by one of 2 cafes in the mansion where you should further experience through their foods!
