... different boat and soon we are ashore. We decide to head straight for the Blue Mansion, and if we don't dilly dally too much we will make the 11 am tour. The blue mansion was one go the many houses belonging to the extremely wealthy Chinese entrepreneur and philanthropist, Cheong Fatt Tze.

It is a large complex of 38 rooms with 5 courtyards and 7 staircases, but we won't be seeing anywhere near that much. Much of the mansion is a heritage hotel and off limits for ...
