Local Master

Auntie Tan

“Tourism has helped bring positive impact to our 252-year-old community. It brings togetherness among us, increasing the income of the local residents, so that now they come back to live in the community and open small shops. We are also able to bring back the precious disappearing Thai-Portuguese cuisine. Travellers who visit the community learn more of our culture and help to preserve the community.”
