Former residence of Xueyan Hu, Hangzhou

(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
At Former residence of Xueyan Hu, get a glimpse of the wealth and splendor of the richest merchant of the Qing dynasty. The only merchant who was awarded with a read-topped hat--usually reserved for the court officials--built the residence in 19th century. Go down a secluded alley that leads to the front gate, then notice the shoe-shaped ingot pattern on the floor--a symbol of good fortune. Walk around the labyrinth of open-air corridors, oriental gardens, rocky areas, pavilions, and towers. See the hall, which Hu built to watch opera. Notice the Western-style chandeliers hanging in the main hall, where the merchant used to entertain foreign guests.

  • 胡雪岩故居(胡雪岩共耗资10万两白银所建,号称“中国巨商第一宅”。古宅为典型明清院落风格,分十三楼宇、芝园等,亭台楼阁,水榭通幽。故居内文物荟萃,犹如一座民间工艺珍宝馆)。胡雪岩故居门票20元,如果有需要可以请个讲解(一般50元-80元),故居不大,但是建筑和装饰都比较讲究。 
  • 人不是很多,但绝对是个要去的地方,看看建筑,听听导游的介绍,是文化的沉淀,那个假山最好玩,有钱的感觉真好这漂亮的大宅子。 
  • 参观完鼓楼,就可以来旁边的胡雪岩故居来参观。大概1-2小时。从元宝街入口买门票进入,20元/人,学生10元/人。建筑的文化里透露着商人的气息,例如鹅卵石铺成元宝、铜钱的样子,窗户的雕花、窗格也有钱币的模样等等。他一生有13个妻子,想了解这个大户人家的兴衰,胡雪岩故居是很好的去处。

  • 故居很大,很精致,部署的巧妙,布置得精美,每一个设计都有一定讲究,虽然外在不是很奢靡,但是样样却价值不菲,也是一种低调啊~~
  • 喜欢这种比较紧凑的设计,感觉很好
  • 胡雪巖故居位於杭州市的元寶街, 是富甲四方的紅頂商人胡雪巖的故居, 這裡需要買門票才能入內參觀, 故居內部十分富麗堂皇, 可一窺清代富賈之家!
  • 很有歷史感的地方,以前豪門巨賈的華麗生活在這裡能有一番感懷。
  • 可以逛逛
