We found the architecture and colors to be lovely. This is worth a quick stop if you are in the area. There is a nice park at the end of the street if you need a place to cool off after a long day. These are the house featured on the plastic cups being sold at Starbucks.

The colorful houses lined up the street adds beauty to this place. So much history to know, but I’m glad they were able to keep these houses.

Fun and cute houses to look at/get pictures of, but not as impressive as the Painted Ladies in San Francisco. The surrounding area offers some great food and drink options and is fun to walk.

Katong and Joo Chiat are one of the main areas in Singapore where you can still have a taste of Peranakan lifestyle. The hint of Peranakan heritage can be found in rows of shophouses and residential houses that have accents that are distinctively Peranakan. These terrace houses on Koon Seng Road (near the intersection of Joo Chiat Road and Koon Seng Road) had been gazetted by Urban Redevelopment Authority for conservation. The main difference between the facade of old and now will be the colourful splash of colours on them. The final output looks like one of Peranakan favourite snack - the Rainbow Keuh Lapis. The houses are beautiful to look at with vibrant splash of colours and totally Instagram worthy.

Beautiful, laid back place in the heart of metropolis that seems to never sleep. I have found myself travel back in time in this part of Singapore. Karong area is quiet, peaceful and still has so much to explore. Picturesque Peranakan houses are perfect to take selfies or instagram photos and a steoll along them is such a breath of originality. A must! Tip: go early for cooler weather, and have a classic Kopi in red Heavenly Wang bakery.

The Peranakans had colorful houses and furniture as they believed the vibrancy would bring wealth, prosperity and longevity to the family. Such a distinct contrast from the modern skyscrapers nearby.

A true example of the Peranakan architecture! These houses are amazingly well preserved and so worth the visit.
