This was a pretty interesting place to explore. I just wish they could have had some more English signs– more context to what I was seeing would have made it more interesting

While billionaires of today build ostentatious towers, those of a more refined era built beautiful villas. A guided tour is highly recommended to explain the significance of the many halls, courtyards, ponds and gardens.

It was a good place to visit if you have plenty of time and nothing else to do, but there are plenty of other better / bigger residences in China.

We roamed around the mansion ourselves and it was so peaceful and beautiful. Suggest to spend around 1.5 - 2 hrs to truly appreciate the house. We regretted not getting a guide to tell us more about the history and architecture.
