If your looking for shops with fashion and arts combined then come to Haji Lane. Just along Arab Street is the narrowest lane in Singapore which caters hip and trendy shops and bars you wonˊt find in malls. Your eyes will be entertained by the wall arts and even the pipes!

This place is so cool, i have been telling everyone that i know to go there! It is a street filled with boutique shops, independant designers, cafes, restaurants, bars and there was even a live dj in the middle of the street the day that i went! I am so glad that i stayed to walk around (my friend brought me there and it was so hot that day, i was thinking of leaving as soon as my friend left!! The trick is to go INSIDE shops where there is air conditioning!!) Dont forget to go upstairs - there are shops there too!!

The surrounding area is also definitley worth going to, there are lots of shops selling fabric, buttons and other DIY things in the next street. There is also a VERY unique perfume shop there. I cant remember the name but you'll know it when you see it! There is a big apothecary table there and they can custom make you a perfume in about 90 minutes and you can even choose a unique bottle to store your perfume in.

There is also a street leading up to the mosque with a bunch of restaurants/cafes, and a bunch of shops there with some good cheap deals (i'm not talking about souvenirs, i tend not to buy those very touristy things since they rip you off for something that is usually quite useless). Dont forget about the food right outside the sultan mosque - YUM!

Only thing about this place is it's a little hard to find - but certainly worth the search!!

Its a little street that runs parallel to Arab Street. Great little trendy shops and now occupies the old houses here, just to walk down the street in the afternoon and in the evenings are great.. seeing the old Singapore.

Haji lane & the arab street area is the perfect place to spend an afternoon (& night) if you are into cute old buildings, interesting boutique shopping, markets stalls (behind the mosque) & middle eastern food complete with shisha.
Easy to get to via bugis MRT & a short 5 minute walk around the raffles hospital.
While the numerous egyptian, persian, lebanese restaurants looked fun, we ate at a very cute bar/restaurant called Crostini & were rewarded with great food & coffee in air con but still with a great view out to the street.
The shops may be aimed more at the ladies - but I guarantee you will be interested & captivated by this place if you spend the time to poke around.
Will definetely go back on my next visit.
