Formerly called Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, The Blue Mansion was once was used as a squat until a team of local artisans restored the 19th century mansion to its former glory. Opened to public in 1995, the mansion is now a heritage hotel. Featuring 16 themed bedrooms, the architecture is typically Chinese, the rooms grand if a little musty, and the outer walls are a shade of brilliant blue. An ideal retreat for culture buffs, as you’ll be able to boast of staying in a building that’s won a UNESCO award for heritage conservation. There is another way to get to this historical building and that is by going on one of the three daily guided tours.
