Once upon a time, Kampong Glam was the royal headquarters of the Malaysian sovereign while visiting Singapore. Nowadays, it is a mainly Malay-Muslim neighborhood with stunning historical architectural features. Gold leaf mosques, pastel shophouses and stunning archways line the streets of this neighborhood, begging you to pause for a moment as you stroll. Cafes and restaurants fill out the storefronts not otherwise occupied by galleries, museums or places of worship and education. Hands down, my favorite neighborhood in Singapore.
Kampong Glam was probably my favorite spot in Singapore. It's vibrant, culturally rich and there's lots of little stuff to see. The Masjid Sultan (Sultan Mosque) is stunning and the neighborhood is fun. It's a stark difference from the chaos and sterility of Orchard Street.
A neighbourhood where you'll find trendy cafes, eclectic shops and plenty of Malay, Turkish, Lebanese and Moroccan restaurants. You'll also be able to visit the Sultan Mosque and the Malay Heritage Centre, a museum located in the former palace of the Malay sultans in Singapore.
Somewhat more satisfying than the contiguous Little India neighborhood to the west, Kampong Glam is the heart of Muslim Singapore, with a pretty mosque, a host of excellent Middle Eastern restaurants, and tons of silk and carpet shops to browse on Arab Street. Touristy, but also photogenic, with some lovely classic shopfront architecture.
Attractive historic district with food vendors and shops. Worth a stroll.
Tip: most tourists go to the restaurants on Bussorah Street, but just down the street you will see a local coffee shop/restaurant where there are a lot of locals. It's much more cheaper there and honestly the view of the Sultan mosque from here together with the entire street especially at sunset is much better
