Interesting to walk through and see the various shops and restaurants. In the end, you will find the Masjid Sultan Mosque which you can visit. In the various roads you can find artwork along the walls.

The Kampong Glam is a nice area near the Arab Street, which has a lot of restaurants. If you are ever in this neighbourhood in the evening, do check it out. Lots of places to eat local food and a decent place to chill out.
