Peranakan Museum
With a few hours to spare , I followed a friend's advice and visited the Peranakan Museum. Sized just right for a quick walk through the cultural traditions and history of the Peranakan -- the descendants of Chinese, Indian, and Muslim merchants and other expats who travelled to Singapore, married, and settled down. My favorite was the second floor gallery featuring the 12-day marriage ceremony, including the many rituals that blessed the colorful wedding night bed. If you have extra time, stroll the nearby gardens at Fort Canning Park.
