Loved this. Neat little enclave. I thought it was better than Little India and Chinatown. Some really trendy little shops, great feel, cheap pashmina, friendly people. Must visit place.

The Kampong Glam is a nice area near the Arab Street, which has a lot of restaurants. If you are ever in this neighbourhood in the evening, do check it out. Lots of places to eat local food and a decent place to chill out.

We've been walking from Bugis to Arab Street looking for mosques when we finally found Kampong Glam and decided to rest there for a bit as there are benches and tables there. It was quite peaceful and cool under the shades of the trees.

a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids
play traditional games along the lane. Also home to
