Rooms inside old mansion.
In reply to chiue, Jun 1, 2010

Hi Chiue,

For background info on this old mansion, here's its official website http://www.cheongfatttzemansion.com/
more info here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheong_Fatt_Tze_Mansion

This place is open to tourists & visitors, there's even a small restaurant inside.

Yes some of the rooms are coverted as boutique hotel rooms for those visitors who want to experience the old world charm of staying in a room of yesteryears.

The premises is rented out for various private functions e.g. weddings & corporate conferences and has been used as sets for some Hong Kong movie productions as well.

The 3 wheeled trishaw still ply the streets but nowadays mainly for tourist fun rides.

Here's a pic of one of those rooms but taken with my Pentax K100D more pics taken with C875 on another new post soon.

Really nice restoration building. Are there people living in or just for show?

The last one with the rickshaw bring back a lot of memories in Hong Kong. I actually ride on those rickshaw a few times when I was a kid.

Thx for sharing it.
