Local tour: Peranakans at Katong

Date Thursday, May 31
Time 9.00am to 1.15pm (approximately)
Venue Newtown Food Centre Car Park
$72.00 Member  $90.00 Guest

Come discover an area of Singapore that is colorful, eclectic, and not yet touristy. For over one hundred years, Katong has been home to many of the diverse Singapore communities, especially enclaves of the Peranakans. This bus tour gives us the chance to learn more about the interesting Peranakan culture.

Heading east we will drive past some of the famous 1920’s seaside bungalows of wealthy Chinese, Arabs, and Jews, learning about area history as we go. We will stop to tour the award winning conservation row of Peranakan terraced houses, well known for their colorful tiles, woodcarvings, and painted stuccos. Our tour includes a visit to a Buddhist temple where the Nyonyas worship.

The tour is not complete without visiting a Peranakan shop for a taste of their famous ‘chang’ (rice dumplings) and other popular Nyonya snacks. Our guide, Diana, will share the legend of the ‘chang’ festival. You will also enjoy a demonstration of Peranakan culture and learn all about ‘kebayas’ - beautifully embroidered blouses and intricate Nyonya beadwork synonymous with this unique culture.
Note: To enter the temple, knees and shoulders much be covered.
