If you're into history, this old building (original building) now under a massive structure is worth visiting. A piece of old Batavia

An ancient building that is well preserved. THe history of the house itself was quite a story. The place was a good place for taking pictures of old buildings. They were also connected to convenience store and a well known hotel. That made the place conveniet for tourists.

The house was well taken care for and you can see how the rich chinese live in the old days but unfortunately there are no guides and no furniture, just a big old building.
