The Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion

The Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, originally uploaded by Christ tell.
Last year, when I travelled to Georgetown on Penang Island, Malaysia, I stayed in the best hotel I could ever dream of. I was very lucky and grateful to be able to rent a room in this historical place.
The Mansion is a masterpiece of Feng Shui, renovated and winner of the 'UNESCO Conservation Award 2000 National Architecture Award for Conservation 1995'.
The Blue house as it is also called, has a soul, and a captivating history, and is a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.

And of course a fantastic photo opportunity...

You can find more details on the official website and the Wikipedia pages (the Mansion - the man:Cheong Fatt Tze), definitely worth a look.
