Singapore’s Arab Street District is an historic part of the island, located just a short distance to the east of downtown. The district is also referred to as Kampong Glam. It is a consumer’s delight, with plenty of shopping and dining for tourists to enjoy, plus several important Islamic sites and other fascinating landmarks. Just to the south is the vibrant district of Bugis.Don’t Miss
Arab Street is famous for its shopping and dining, but there are also some interesting sites to explore.
The entire area has a long and fruitful Malay history which is on display in the Malay Heritage Centre. This fascinating museum includes multimedia presentations and historical artefacts and photos from the bygone days. Tourists should put aside between one and two hours to fully appreciate this museum.
Numerous temples and mosques are located within and near the Arab Street district. For good luck, visitors cannot miss Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple. Just next door is the extravagant Sri Krishnan Temple, which is dedicated to the Hindu god Krishna. Of course, no visit to Arab Street is complete without exploring the Islamic mosques, including the renowned Sultan Mosque.
While in Arab Street, tourists are recommended to simply stroll through the district, and absorb the stunning architecture and historic culture on display here. Some of the shophouses are over a hundred years old, but still operate as they did a century ago – only with a more contemporary twist nowadays.Restaurants and Bars in Arab Street
Arab Street has become famous for its halal food, and also boasts a number of Middle Eastern restaurants serving a range of regional delicacies. Several establishments even have shisha pipes on the menu too. Turkish cuisine is particularly popular in the Arab Street district. Alcoholic beverages are hard to come by in the district, although there are plenty of cafés that offer a laid-back social atmosphere. Even the nearby Bugis district is relatively short on after-hour establishments.Shopping
Batik and silk shops are common along Arab Street. Many of the old-style shophouses still stand today, now home to antique dealers, IT services and other contemporary businesses. The nearby area of Bugis is packed with shopping facilities, from the bargains of Sungei Road Thieves Market, to the bustling alleyways of Bugis Junction.
