Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion

Cheong Fatt Tze (Blue) Mansion, George Town, Penang, Malaysia
by Joe Rosli Sidek

Built by a wealthy Mandarin, this is an opulent Chinese house but with a Gaudí thing going on—it’s got a Scottish wrought iron balustrade and art nouveau stained-glass windows. You can take tours or stay in the small bed-and-breakfast there. 14 Lebuh Leith 60/4-262-0006 cheongfatttzemansion.com.
