Visitors who enjoy a little bargaining will find it here among the historic shops selling textiles, perfume and more. Along with traditional Muslim food offerings, some Western restaurants have settled into the area, creating a Singaporean blend of cultures. Make sure to stop at the island’s largest mosque, the Sultan Mosque, a landmark in the Kampong Glam Malay Heritage District.

It was very nice, interesting and easy to navigate. The history is more visable and easier to follow. The shops offer a much more local produce with much more interesting and artistic items.

This is the trendy place to be on a Friday night. Come early to get parking before the streets are pedestrian. Large variety of cafes and restaurants

Loved to see a place special for my people. Like being back at home except for a different weather, cleaner environment and different political atmosphere. The place is nice quite, not well represented like chinatown or little india, but gets a pass mark anyway.

I take backpackers around the city when I have time. And this is the first stop of my free walking tour. I like this place because this place has everything. It has souvenirs, good food, good architecture, and cool wall graffitis for photos!

A wander down Arab Street is highly recommended. It is so interesting, with lots of little shops to browse through selling all kinds of middle eastern home wares, clothing etc. Can highly recommend Aljunied Brothers (no. 95) for beautiful perfumed oils.

Evening prayer around 6:30-7pm was happening when I arrived! Lots of people sitting down having food together inside the mosque and outside in the restaurants. Lovely atmosphere. The mosque is stunning and well looked after.

The Arab Street has some really nice chic bars and restaurants. You'll find the best kebabs and middle eastern cuisine here. The place is usually packed in the evening, so best to go early and find a suitable dining place.

Nice place with loads of restaurants around, and also gift shops. Had dinner in one of the Arabian restaurants with the family. Food was really nice but a bit pricey.

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

Hi, Bugis Street MRT Station is just around 500 meters away from Bugis Street. That should be the closest.
