“Royal Singapura”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Trees and plants are endemic to South East Asia. The part about the old empire of Singapore was also fascinating to those unfamiliar to regional royalty.

“Interesting little cafe and boutique area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

This is a compact, interesting, and atmospheric little area to stroll around, with designer shops, cafes and restaurants, and stacks of carpet shops. If you want to buy a silk carpet from Afghanistan, this is the place! But there are also more moderately priced items on offer, such as lovely pashminas and table runners. I loved the general ambience. The place really swings at night - I can especially recommend Cafe le Caire, where we had several great middle eastern meals.
The area is easy to access - just a short walk from the Bugis MRT.

“History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

It was a fun way to learn about the early history of Singapore. We had a chance to go into the mosque to view the muslim prayer hall.

“Shabby Chic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

The artistic hub of Singapore this area is filled with amazing boutiques showcasing everything from quirky local designers, jewellery, vintage and even bicycles. At night the food at the arabc restaurants is delicious, reasonable and a shisha is always a great way to end the night.

“it is a bit tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

This is a new tourist precinct but it is a bit tired.
Some of the restaurants are good but the museums arent really that interesting.
