Worth a trip.if you are staying in Chaozhou. Closer to Chaozhou than Shantou, RMB60 vs RMB100 Didi trip. Chaozhou is a much better place to stay anyway as Shantou not really a tourist centre Residence has over 500 rooms but only about a quarter open to public. The rest lookstill lived in by local village people. Makes an interesting couple of hours trip RMB40 to go in

Paid an admission fee. Impressed by the size of this mansion. However there is not much maintenance done and lack of life around. Some rooms are used for selling Knick knacks, food and furniture. Overall it’s quite deserted and paints a lonely picture.

(陈慈黉故居) This property is located about 25km from downtown Shantou and takes about an hour by taxi to get there in normal traffic. The property seems run down. Certainly it is a huge property and had seen better times. Local government plans to develop the property and the surroundings into a tourist attraction seems to be on the drawing board. The snack shop was not opened when I was there and there was at least a bus load of HK tourists on the property. There were also local tourists there too. Maybe the distance make it a challenge to attract the crowd. However the local Didi driver testify that the crowd is huge during weekends and festivals. A new road access to the property had been built to divert traffic away from the village.

See how the rich lives was what my intention to visit for... So many rooms for different purpose n a big courtyard...beautiful wall n floor tiles was used n still retain its beauty.. Playing hide n seek in such big compound should be fun.
