Peranakan culture, especially in the dominant Peranakan centres of Malacca , Singapore , and Penang , is characterized by its unique hybridization of ancient Chinese culture with the local cultures of the Nusantara region, the result of a centuries-long history of transculturation and, in the earliest days of settlement, interracial marriage. The ancestors of most individuals who identify as Peranakan were immigrants from the southern provinces of China who arrived in significant numbers in the Nusantara region between the 15th and 17th centuries, taking abode in the Malay Peninsula where their descendants in Malacca, Singapore, and Penang are referred to as Baba-Nyonya ; the Indonesian Archipelago where their descendants are referred to as Kiau-Seng ; [6] and southern Thailand , primarily in Phuket and Ranong. The particularities of genealogy and the unique syncretic culture are the main features that distinguish the Peranakan from descendants of later waves of Chinese immigrants to the region who are instead generally referred to using larger umbrella terms such as Malaysian Chinese , Chinese Singaporean , Chinese Indonesian or Tionghoa , or Thai Chinese , categories under which the Peranakan Chinese might be considered be a minority subset. Popular accounts of the Peranakan Chinese in Malacca, Singapore, and Penang sometimes state exclusive descent from the royal retinue of a purported Ming Dynasty princess named Hang Li Po or Hong Li-Po [13] [14] — mentioned in the Malay Annals as having made a marriage of alliance with the Sultan of Malacca in the fifteenth century [15] — but the historical evidence for this likely romanticized claim is unreliable. The word Peranakan — which can have very broad and labile meanings in Malay and Indonesian and, when used in common parlance, is simply an indicator of heritage or descent — may also be used to refer to other ethnic groups in the same region. However, the latter usage tends to be less common, and the prominence of Peranakan Chinese culture has led to the common elision whereby the word "Peranakan" on its own is often used to refer specifically to the Peranakan Chinese. The Peranakan Chinese are also sometimes referred to as the Straits Chinese or Straits-born Chinese , though these terms are not interchangeable.
