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

The mansion showed old legendary house of one of the richest man in Medan at that time. Beautiful house, well maintained. Good to have a guide shows us the house and tell the story.

Tjong A Fie is a very rich person during his time. His mansion is well preserved. Something worth to be visited. We can learned a bit about the colonial era of Medan, with its big plantation.

Nice visit for me as it took me back to the ages of my kid ages. This is one place that I wanted to visit again as I did not have plenty of time on this visit. Yet, we are all lucky as we could meet with one of Mr. Tjong A Fie's grand daughter and had a picture together... More

A pleasant and airy place to visit especially for those keen on going down memory lane, and to get an idea of how life among the well-to-do was like over the turn of the 19th/20th century in colonial Indonesia/Malaya. The briefing by a tour guide helped a lot.

If you decide to travel to Medan, never miss this historical place. Simple outside? yes. Why? from outside this house is seems only a simple house. What is Treasure Inside? It's the interior and the building inside of Tjong A Fie Mansion. Why? I myself need to thank to Mr. Tjong A Fie for his philosophy while build this house.... More
