WORTH IT! Expected nothing more than an ordinary sightseeing tourist spot but once we arrived, we were happy that there was a tour(including entrance fee: RM20 for Malaysians) to have a look around the mansion. It got better as the tour was very entertaining. Our group tour guide (Ricky) was very clear, informative and funny. Kudos to Ricky for letting us have a pleasant and entertaining experience!
Upon entry we were given an English speaking guide who took us to many of the rooms, showing us interesting pieces and answering all of our questions. Really interesting and ornate mansion. Tour lasted 30-45 min before we were left to visit the mansion on our own to take pictures (not all rooms were covered on our tour). Be prepared to take off your shoes before going to the 2nd floor. There are stairs - I don’t believe this would be friendly to those with mobility issues.
