Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, Lebuh Leith

Home to Cheong Fatt Tze, the powerful Nanyang industrialist who was regarded as the most prominent historic personalities of the East. He arrived as a penniless immigrant to Java who prospered from Dutch contracts in Sumatra and built this mansion as his family home in Penang in 1880. This architectural legacy, a masterpiece of exceptional quality of design and craftsmanship, has been restored by its new owners to its former glory and is well worth a visit! House tours are conducted daily.
