Singapore's Peranakan Culture Tour


What’s so special about these people? Where did they come from? What’s shaped their culture, traditions, and cuisine? All can be revealed when you join me on this private tour. As a fifth-generation Peranakan I can help you discover the origins and culture of a unique group of people: the Peranakans, exclusively found in South-East Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines). Peranakans are a mix of mainly ethnic Chinese whose language and culture have been shaped by Malay influences. The word Peranakan comes from Malay per anak kan. Anak means child, so this phrase means a locally born child or a child of this region. There are many stories about how this culture began, and I’m eager to share them with you. On this tour you can visit the Peranakan cultural district of Katong. Learn about kaya jam which Katong is famous for. See a Catholic church. Walk past a Peranakan dance and music association. Be mesmerized by little houses with colours inspired by Brighton Beach houses. Take photographs with beautiful street art murals along the way. Heard of the Katong Laksa noodles war? Discover the truth about it. Enjoy a delicious rainbow-colored Peranakan cake. And explore a wonderfully ornate display of traditional garments and hand-beaded slippers. Admire amazing architecture of the Peranakan shop houses. There is so much to see and do, so get ready for a deep dive into a new and different culture. Along the way, ask me as many questions as you want – as a local, if I don’t know the answers I’ll probably know someone who does. And at any time, if you see something that you want to know more about, let me know and we can take time to get closer. This is a tour you could never find in any other tourist guide. It gives you personal access into the lives of the locals. This tour is 100% private, just for you. So if there is anything in particular that you want to see or do, just let me know and I’ll do my best to shape the tour to your wishes.
