Get acquainted with a unique blend of Chinese and Malay traditions. Experience the Peranakans’ way of life through their food, language and fashion; a rich heritage preserved from the 17th century to this very day.
Take a trip back in time and see beautifully restored houses from an era long gone. Built in the early 1900s, the exteriors of Peranakan homes are distinguished by their elaborate plaster renderings and colourful glazed tiles.
Take home colourful Peranakan gifts and souvenirs. In Peranakan neighbourhoods like Katong and Joo Chiat, you’ll find exquisite embroidery, silk kebayas (blouse dress) and sarongs (skirts), kasot manek (hand-beaded slippers) and bags.
