Peranakan Chinese are the descendants of early Chinese immigrants who intermarried with the local indigenous people. They are mainly found in Malacca and Penang in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
The Straits Chinese or Peranakan Chinese are collectively known as Babas and Nyonyas. They are generally considered to be the descendants of early Chinese immigrants and indigenous peoples in Nanyang. Their traditional customs and costumes still reflect many beliefs and unique habits of the early Chinese settlers. (Lianhe Wanbao, 25/11/2019)
