This two-storey UNESCO World Heritage site was built in 1889 and provides a great escape for those wanting to avoid the crowds at the Ruins of St Paul’s. Once owned by the city’s wealthiest man in the late 19th century, this mansion fuses European elements – like neo-classical balustrades and perforated wooden ceilings – with traditional furnishings found in the late Qing Dynasty. Also harbouring a tragedy of its own, with its former owner committing suicide after going bankrupt, this museum definitely takes you back in time.
