A grand mansion that all tourists should come and visit to understand one man's excellent efforts to contribute to the growth of the city of Medan through local and Chinese migrant labour. Tjong A Fie was an associate of Cheong Fatt Tze (Blue Mansion in Penang, Malaysia), and both mansions certainly have their similarities. When we arrived, an English speaking guide took us around. He was from the local university and this was his gig to practise speaking English. He refused to accept money, but we pressed it into his hand and he was more than appreciative. The 'tour' was an hour but we spent another hour going through the mansion ourselves.

This interesting attraction opens its doors at 9am and charges a IDR35,000 entrance fee which was well worth it. The building looks old and dilapidated from the outside but very grand and posh on the inside and clearly shows how the very wealthy and super influential lived their lives in the past. The entrance fees cover the services of a guided tour around the mansion and on a busy day they have up to five guides doing the honour of showing the visitors around. The guide we had was very knowledgeable and dedicated about what she's doing. She brought us on a wonderful journey around the mansion showing us the various rooms and sections of the very huge house, upstairs as well as downstairs and at the same time narrating about the owner's lifetime accolades and achievements. This is a definite must-visit when in Medan.

The Mansion is pretty well maintained and was the home of a prominent overseas Chinese businessman. It serves as a museum today, offering a pretty interesting insight into part of Medan's history/cultural fabric. It is close to the train station / Merdeka walk - can easily be reached on foot, or as part of a walking tour around Medan's old town. There is a modest entry fee.

Although already old enough, this building consider well maintained. We enjoyed the Chinese overseas architecture, and furniture, including some old photos related with Mr. Tjong A Fie. However the entrance ticket fee is too expensive compare with what we get in visiting this mansion.
