  • Definitely worth the entry fee. Stanley's tour was fun. He shared lots of great anecdotes, information and jokes, entertaining us all round the mansion. The building is beautiful and the collection of antiques kept us busy for a few hours. Your entry fee gives you admission throughout the day so you could easily spend the day popping in and out. Thanks Stanley.
  • 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!
