Xuán Villa

Top choice historic building in Méizhōu

Foreboding and beautiful Xuán Villa was built in 1936 by a wealthy Malaysian Chinese who was a member of a secret society tied to Sun Yatsen. Parts of the building doubled up as an air-raid shelter. If the owners let you in, you’ll see crumbling but elegant staircases and sweeping balconies with views of tea fields.
