“commercial display of mixed heritage”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

the entire area of Kampong Glam is a colourful display of mixed heritage that presents itself in the form of straits born (peranakan, indian muslim, javanese, malay) eateries, knick-knack and antiques outlets.
would be extremely convenient for Muslim travelers from other parts of the world to swing by at this place as the Sultan Mosque and halal cafes and restaurant are all with reach.

“Glam!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Back to the rich and vibrant old days of singapore, a sense of nostalgia all around, and ideal spot for avid photographers or getting your wedding photos done . Try out the variety of food that kampong glam has to offer. Who says old is boring anyways?!

“Kampong Glam”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Nothing much to do, just walk about, and see the little shops around the area selling antique stuff like an old spinning top made from wood and using a rope.

“Try the heritage trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Immerse yourself in this cultural experience. Color outside the boundaries - explore outside the usual attractions and routes. It was fun also for me to learn more about the Malay culture. Passing by it does not meaning seeing it, seeing it does not mean understanding it. Take a moment to truly understand this part of Singapore culture.
