Our members enjoyed the previous visit so much, we simply had to arrange another! No surprise as the Intan was named 'Best Tour Experience' at the Singapore Tourism Awards 2016 and it does not disappoint.
Our experience at The Intan will include a brief outline of the history and culture of Peranakans. In particular focusing on Chinese, local and European influences to this unique culture. We will taste authentic Peranakan life as we tour the house and see the carefully curated and conserved antique building and marvel over the collection of shoes, tiles, accessories and ceramics. Discover what happened at traditional and lavish wedding ceremonies, which lasted for 12 days, and appreciate the colourful and intricate bead work and embroidery handmade by the Nyonya ladies. The tour will end with a chance to savour some delicious homemade kueh and teas.
Visits to The Intan are by appointment only so join us to view this gem of a heritage house sited in the wonderfully vibrant Joo Chiat enclave.
