As I am descended from a Nonya I found it particularly interesting. I did not know much about the Peranakan's and was delighted to discover so much from our guide. The food was delicious.

The tour was OK but a bit disappointing. The guide was quite knowledgeable but the tour could have been better had more been incl...uded. I have a friend in Singapore who is a Peranakan descendant. I met her following the tour and she asked what we had covered. She felt the tour was incomplete and showed me around the area pointing out traditional architecture and customs practiced in the area. more
