Your Singapore heritage tour starts with hotel pickup for the drive to your first stop, Fort Canning Park, a lovely green space on top of a hill. With your guide, walk through the Spice Garden, learning about different spices and herbs like lemongrass, curry, ginger, turmeric, chili and galangal, which are used in various Peranakan dishes.
Next, visit the Peranakan Museum, home to exhibits about the customs, language, clothing, religion and history of the Peranakan people. Browse displays about food traditions, and learn more about Peranakan cuisine, which combines Indian, Malay, Chinese and European influences. Then head to Katong and Joo Chiat, two lively districts known for their multicultural populations, good local food and rows of colorful Peranakan shophouses that date from the 1920s.
Your final stop is Kim Choo, where you’ll watch a beading demonstration and then enjoy tea and food samples. You can try different Nonya dishes, such as otak otak (grilled fish with mixed spices), layered cake and dumplings.
Your tour then ends with hotel drop-off.
