Baba & Nyonya Heritage House

The finer things in life

What we say: 4 stars

The Baba Nyona, the unique culture that formed when wealthy Chinese merchants married local Malay women, certainly appreciated the finer things in life.

This ancestral house showcases many of them, from carved hardwood furniture to beaded slippers. Don't miss the bridal chamber and the black and white photos of stone-faced young brides and grooms seated in their thrones.

You'll get a lot more out of the experience if you join the guided tour -- it's included in the ticket price.
