Step back in time when you cross the threshold of this powdered green mansion, ornately decorated in the style of a lavish Peranakan home of yesteryear. This UNESCO Heritage Site preserves the rich history of the Peranakan community, also known as the Straits Chinese people, who flourished in the Straits Settlements of Penang, Malacca and Singapore in the 19th century. For a dose of culture, trawl through the extensive array of antiques on display here and get a glimpse of their unique customs and traditions. The opulent interiors also make for great photo ops.
