This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly colored fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Center and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.

"Historical and Tranquil"
reviewed 3 weeks ago by Sylvia K
Going to places of worship always give people the feeling of peace and tranquility. Sultan Mosque, built in 1824, is one of the largest mosque in Singapore.
To get to this mosque, you have the option of taking a bus or the MRT. I would recommend taking the MRT as it is the fastest, yet comfortable mode of transport. Assuming...
"Enjoyable and fascinating insight into Malay heritage"
reviewed February 9, 2018 by Penelope B
We spent a fascinating hour or two and learnt a great deal about the history of Singapore and the region from a Malay perspective. Our guide Peggy was friendly and very knowledgeable. There are many interesting artefacts, costumes, photographs and day to day items on display. There is a marvellous display of boats of the Malay Archipelago and a fascinating...
Located a short walk from Lavender Metro station, the Mosque, despite being found close to Arab Street, the exterior is shabby and covered in banners and posters. As a result, this put us off visiting and we far preferred to visit Masjid Hajjah Fatimah on Beach Road.
"Nice gallery in Haji Lane for Japanese animation fans"
reviewed July 21, 2016 by LLoke
As a long time fan of Studio Ghibli, I was pleasantly surprised to come across the Polar Bear gallery by chance. It was a real highlight and experience to see actual hand-drawn movie prints. I would recommend this to anyone who appreciates Studio Ghibli's works.
It was quite nice to see the toys, books, things of our childhood days. Brought back many pleasant memories. Though it is a small place but it's crammed full of things. Admission is free. Do drop by for a visit to experience Singapore's past.
This was another visit with my husband to Nox Dine in the Dark.
This time with our daughter and a visiting guest from the US.
As always our experience from Nox was first class!!
The staff are always on hand with a friendly smile, the professionalism and sense of humour of the servers is always outstanding.
The ever changing menu...
Went here to try their new menu. I’m in love with the arancinne balls! It’s crispy on the outside and the mozzarella filling is goeey and melty inside. The creamy truffle mushroom on the toasts is perfect too.
The calzone pizza look so unique and tasted really good. Overall we are satisfied with the dishes and the taste fits the...
"Nice ambience, quality food, good selection of wine, awesome staff"
reviewed 4 days ago by demogus
Have repeatedly brought my business clients to this place for light discussion. Everyone love the place. You don’t have to raise your voice to hear the other party speak.Very Polished. Serve quality food with a wide selection of wine to go with. Not forgetting the friendly staff that makes the experience so much more wonderful. Definitely be back again
Bustling, manic, full on and a great place for lunch. This Muslim restaurant is a wonder place for good fast food. Freshly cooked Murtabak is a must. Wonderful fresh lime juice too. Don't leave Singapore with trying lunch here.
Tucked away in a small area near the Moslem Cemetary. HAs an Australian flair and offers good coffee, breakfast, and other light fares. Service was fast and good. The atmosphere is laid back and a good place to chat with friends or read a book. It offers both indoor and limited outdoor seating.
It was the best of rooms, it was the worst of rooms...
There are two types of rooms at the Village Hotel - those that have been renovated and those that haven’t.
The renovated rooms are fantastic! Great beds, bathrooms terrific and, on the whole, superb value for money.
I did move rooms whilst I was there. To an unrenovated...
The hotel is very well located. Near Haji Lane, just two substations from Chinatown and Little India. And not far from many other things. The room is really clean, well equipped just no windows (for our price) unfortunately. The staff is great and helping.

My family stayed one night this hotel. The hotel was located beside Arab street, so there was good point to start Singapore trip, I think. We were 8 person and stayed 2 room, that's no problem. The room was a little small, but it was no uncomfortable to stay because of duplex type. We stayed comfortably.
Stayed in a single room which is very tiny and no windows (it's specified), however, you've got everything you need from tea/ coffee making facility to slippers. Found the shower arrangement a bit awkward as it wets the whole bathroom when you have a shower. Friendly and efficient staff and basic breakfast. Suits people who use the room for sleeping...
Good hotel, 20/30min away from the center, on foot, but easily doable. Very clean and cozy. Breakfast is limited but good quality. Overall a good stay. Big plus: handy (they give you a smartphone with internet/GPS that you can use for free, which is very helpfull) downside: no pool
