What You Can Expect
Take a colorful journey into the history, lifestyle and unique character of the Peranakan people in Singapore. Walk through a spice garden - the original site of the first Botanic Gardens.
Next, off to Katong and Joo Chiat, bustling enclaves well known for their rich cultural mix, with residents from various communities such as the Peranakans, Eurasians, Malays and Indians adding to the cultural fabric of Singapore.
See rows of colorful traditional Peranakan shophouses dating back to 1920s and 1930s amidst an area that draws people from around the island for delicious local food. Stop for a Peranakan beading demonstration followed by tea and sampling of some Nonya delicacies.
We did several tours on Singapore with different companies but without question this was the best. It was a great mix of history and culture with the promise of some authentic Peranakan food at the end. Our guide (Mr Foo) was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining - so much so we booked up for another tour with him. We'd recommend this over the normal city tour to get behind the scenes in Singapore...
I loved this tour. Part of it may have been partly due to my travel companions.We were a small group of six and thoroughly enjoyed the Pernakan Museum and the tea and snacks that followed. Walking through the spice garden wasn't that interesting to me, but was the first time I'd found any green space in Singapore and no crowds and that was WONDERFUL!
