Peranakan Trail, Singapore

Take a walk along the Peranakan Trail to sample all things Peranakan in Singapore. You’ll begin with a visit to the Spice Garden located at the original site of the first Botanic Gardens at Fort Canning Park. Next, make your way to the Peranakan Museum on nearby Armenian Street, for a full cultural immersion into the heritage, culture, language and costume, as well as the important traditions and rituals of the Peranakans. Today, you’ll find beautiful Peranakan fashion and decorative items at Rumah Bebe, which comes replete with intricate woodcarvings and furnishing in the beautifully restored house. Finally, end your Peranakan Trail with a Peranakan food tasting at Kim Choo. Here you will be demonstrated how dumplings are made, and a chance to savor some of the Peranankan well-known snacks. After all that strolling, of course a stop by a colonial house to have an authentic Peranakan dinner is a must.
