  • Alvin is a good host and brings to life the peranakan heritage well. The house is his home and is packed with so many beautiful items and furniture. Alvin’s enthusiasm is infectious I learnt so much.....  more »
  • A great stop; well worth leaving the more congested tourist parts of the city. Learn not just about Peranakan Culture, but gain a better understanding of Singapore and the relationship between it's different groups. Highly recommended.
