11am: Go on the Signature Tea Tour

Immerse yourself in Peranakan (Straits-born Chinese) tradition at The Intan. A gem of a heritage house, The Intan (which aptly means ‘diamond’ in Malay) is nestled in the culturally rich enclave of Joo Chiat. Get a taste of authentic Peranakan flavour when you sign yourself up for a tea and tour with the Intan Signature Tea Experience. Be showed around the carefully curated and conserved antique Peranakan house and marvel at the multitude of vibrant relics like shoes, accessories, tiles and ceramics. Then, tuck into an array of Peranakan dishes, homemade kueh (small dessert cakes) and teas. The tea tours can take place at any time of day, and are $45 per person for a group of six.

Trace your steps back to Eunos MRT and take the train to City Hall MRT. Walk about 6 minutes down St. Andrew’s Road to National Gallery Singapore, and head inside to find your lunch spot, Odette.
