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.

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....

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.
