Mandarin's House, Macau

4.3
Dating back to 1869, Mandarin's House is a historic residential complex built by Zheng Wenrui and expanded by his sons. This Cantonese-style structure blends Western décor into the architecture and is one of the largest former family houses in Macau. Although more than 300 tenants once rented home here and created poor building conditions, the government eventually seized the complex and established it as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    I enjoyed visiting the house. It's build around a number of internal courtyards which makes it interesting to explore. The upstairs hall is quite grand with a beautifully detailed ceiling.  more »

Therefore, the best is by Huan Jie from the bottom up, top down or by the Bishop hill walking 鄭 House 鄭 House is in Macau which one was fixed to one of the best historical Construction, is worth a visit. 鄭 homes near the House also has a lot of travel-view point, for example: Bishop Hill and 媽 閣 and and women well, and so on.
