Amazing to see the contrast of enormous living rooms, grand rooms and the upstairs ballroom to the tiny kitchen where meals had to be prepared for the many or hundreds of visitors.

The mansion is breathtaking if you like history, you must visit Tjong A Fie Mansion, once owned by the rich socialite of early 1900's era. It's rich of culture and historical rooms that will bring you back to the old city of Medan

I was truly inspired by Mr Tjong....how one man can achieve so much in his life. It was a nice visit with an English tour guide. The house is lovely with history of what happened.

If you look at the top things to do in Medan you'll find that the airport train is number one which pretty much sums up the lack of tourist attractions in Medan. I am happy that we went to Tong a fie's mansion. They have restored and preserved it well. It is an eclectic mix of treasures from around the... More

I was quite astonished by the history. Now I understand the Chinese majority in Medan and how it all started. Really interesting and definitely a very nice mansion.

My Mother was born in Medan and it was really wonderful for her to re-visit her childhood again. As a child she came here to have piano lessons with one of Tjong Ah Fie's daughters. The grand piano has been kept exactly where it was all these years as my mother remembers! ... that's seven decades...

This was not in my agenda and I am glad I accidentally stumbled upon it. The mansion stored lots of untold stories and mysteries and the guide ( who spoke in Bahasa Indon which I could understand ) narrated it very well. Tjiong Ah Fie was obviously a very important and influential man who contributed greatly to Medan's early development... More

Very well preserved part of the colonial history of Indonesia and suprisingly interesting is the role of chineses settlers cooperating whit the dutch invaders. Well preserved and possible to have a guided tour, that I recommend to get a lot of explanations. To do in Medan
