Lovely place to visit if you have a spare day, quaint little roads with shops and restaurants. Great for an afternoon stroll. Close to Bugis so can walk to there after

Good place to take pictures and to pick some souvenirs. Shops opens after 11.00 am, so better to visit in the afternoon.

This was an unexpected find. We did a walk from Little India to Kampong Glam and really enjoyed exploring the streets in the precinct. The only letdown was that we couldn't look around for longer.

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
