Blue Elephant Cooking School and Restaurant is located at the site of the well-known Phra Pitak Chinpracha Mansion. This historic Sino-Portuguese mansion was built in 1903. In the past, it was used as the governor’s residence. A splendid building, it is a combination of European and Chinese style. The architecture is European (Sino-Portuguese), while it is decorated in traditional Chinese style, especially with a big ventilator on the rooftop called “Shim Jae”, which is feng-shui science. The front is open to the South and captures fresh breezes throughout the year.
