Photographer's Note

One of the main attractions of Penang is the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, in Georgetown. It was built in 1870 and has 38 rooms. This house had featured in the movie "Indochine" with Catherine Deneuve. The strong blue colour is striking and really looks nice in reality.

The restoration of this manion started in the 1990s and this effort has been recognised with many awards, including the UNESCO Conversation Award in 2000.
