The place where Penang had to punch in, the Panang Peranakan Mansion, was impoverished after entering this mansion, which limited my imagination. It is one of the most distinctive mansions in the area, the past years of the Straits Chinese in Penang. Show it to the fullest.
What is "Nyonya"? Nyonya is the Chinese and the local men and women married, the next generation of the birth, the girl is called "Nyonya." The boy is called "Baba".
All kinds of exquisite carved buildings, hand-painted embroidered costumes, how to get along with daily necessities. This beautiful artwork was built in the 1894s in 1894, combining Chinese screens, English floor tiles and Scottish cast iron. Elements and styles. It was once the home and shop of Zheng Jinggui, a generation of tin industry miners in Penang. It has now been transformed into an antique museum, recreating the affluent life of the scorpion and Nyonya a hundred years ago.
Chinese classical furniture, Western-style blinds and colored window glass, the combination of Chinese and Western, will reflect the external beauty of Nyonya culture. I don't think it can be called a local tyrant. In those days, people who could have such wealth were simply giants.
Special need to pay attention to the need to take off your shoes when you go to the second floor. The former residence of the Blue House is also worth a visit.
