JOO CHIAT

Nothing screams Peranakan as loudly as Joo Chiat – with its gorgeously traditional shop houses lining the roads, it’s no wonder Joo Chiat was chosen as Singapore’s first Heritage Town. Featuring a mixture of local cuisine, as well as heritage centres and shops that preserve the Peranakan heritage in Singapore, Joo Chiat is one of the must-see cultural trails for locals and tourists alike.
