Blue Mansion 3

After having suffered from paucity of funds and negligence, it was purchased from Cheong Fatt Tze's descendants in 1989 by a group of wealthy Penang locals. Today, the property operates as Bed & Breakfast and offers guided tours in the afternoons (both in Mandarin and English). It has won awards from UNESCO. The mansion was featured in several films including the 1993 Oscar-winning “Indochine”.
