Owner description: 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.

A lot of great restaurants for any budget. The place is very lively and young. The Mosque is also very beautiful.

“Too commercialised”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

Sometimes when you overdo the renovation, the place loses its original colours. When I travel,I'd stray away from the malls but look for the small shops and lanes by the streets. But it's totally a turn off when you start to see things you could find at JJ market and Bali....

“Great Alternative Flavour- Great for afternoons or evenings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

Take a stroll & have a 'teh tarik'. Rows of 'shisha' smokers would be lining the streets. Check out the older looking cafes for the real flavours.
