Best to go early in the morning with kids, everything was just opening around 10am but it was nice and quiet to view the mosque and Malay heritage area. A trip to Mustafa from here is also easy.

This area may be considered part of Kuala Lumpur. The people here are mostly Malayans, Malay architecture and mosques are everywhere, yet you can still find many tall modern buildings. Like little India and Chinatown, this place is a must to visit. Don't miss Sultan...More

Interesting to walk through and see the various shops and restaurants. In the end, you will find the Masjid Sultan Mosque which you can visit. In the various roads you can find artwork along the walls.

This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers
an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk
down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block
over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly
coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for
a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids
play traditional games along the lane. Also home to
the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most
