Benteng Chinese culture is one of Tangerang’s heritage. It has extremely valuable historical value for the development of Tangerang region, and the preservation of Benteng Chinese culture's value is a responsibility and obligation imposed not only to the Benteng Chinese ethnicity residents but also broadly to all stakeholders. The purpose of this study is to map the perception and preference of the residents of Tangerang Regency towards Benteng Chinese culture as one of the developing Tangerang cultures. The primary data are obtained from the results of questionnaires given to the respondents, i.e. Tangerang residents who are of Benteng Chinese and Non-Benteng Chinese descendants in Tangerang to 30 (thirty) persons respectively. The perception and preference aspects in this study include the dimensions of social, cultural, uniqueness, and originality values. Importance-Performance Analysis (IPA) is used to analyze the data to compare the expectations and interest level in the perception of residents in the forms of graphs. The relationship between Chinese cultures which have added the colors of archipelagic cultures for hundred years should be studied in depth. The research results need to be disseminated and distributed to residents more widely to lessen the gap of perception between Chinese descent and Non-Chinese descent residents.
