While there is actually not much to see and do here, the insight into Chinese architecture and living styles of 19th and early 20th century. It is free to see, so if passing then worth popping in to, and it does not take long to...More

The Lou Kau Mansion is an attractive historic Chinese mansion and nice example of late 19th century Chinese architecture. While not as large as fellow World Heritage - Mandarin's House, what is available to see is quite impressive and worth making time for when sightseeing...More

It is not that big as the term Mansion will indicate, but it is very interesting. Very high tall ceilings, which I believe were done for the heat in the summer times. Beautiful wood carvings and interesting drainage system of the inside courtyard.

Hardly a mansion, but the Lou Kau house is free to visit and well worth seeking out. The upstairs isn't open, but the rooms downstairs are quite charming and have a lot of decor detail you won't find elsewhere. Closed on Mondays.
