  • Definitely one of the highlights of my trip. The mansion itself is an architecture feat with lots of interior features and furniture. The entrance is only 20RM per head with guided tour of English/Chinese. Highly recommended to come as early as possible to take great photos as the place can be very crowded. Our Chinese tour guide Alan is very pleasant and knowledgable.
  • Well preserved place with very unique articles that transcends through time. Worth the RM20 entrance fee and guided tour inside. I wish that the guide was more articulate in his presentation and try to relive all those memories in the past so that it won't be just a narrative but a history lesson that can be digested not only in an informative manner but also beautifully presented.
