Uncover a bit Singapore’s cultural mosaic with a tour that weaves the story of the Peranakans, a minority ethnic group descended from different cultures. Begin your journey with a trip to the Peranakan Museum, a fascinating collection of Peranakan artefacts, interactive exhibits and educational installations – all telling the story of the marriages of Chinese or Indian men and Malay or Indonesian women that gave rise to the colourful culture.
Wander through the museum alongside your guide before setting off into the neighbouring Joo Chiat District, home to Singapore’s most distinctive Peranakan architecture. Colourful, ornate and intricate, the facades of these beautiful structures are the perfect example of Peranakan culture. End the journey with a tasty traditional snack of ‘kueh’, a sweet confectionary made with coconut milk, palm sugar and pandan leaves!
