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.

I think this place would be better with a guided tour so you get to understand the background of the place, highlighted places and various cultures that have inhabited the place over time

This is the Muslim part of Singapore, where the Malay society lived here in the past. Besides the great mosque, there are many shops, picturesque streets and an old little palace that has been turned into a museum.
