Malaysian Road Trip – Penang: Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion ~ The Exterior

Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion was built in the 1880s and is a remarkable building. I’ve been wanting to stay there since we watched Glen Goei’s The Blue Mansion in 2009 and we finally managed to during our Malaysian road trip. You can read more about Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion in the links because I’m just going to post many, many photos of the place. The photos were taken on different days and at different times so the light looks different in every photo.
