Best to go early in the morning with kids, everything was just opening around 10am but it was nice and quiet to view the mosque and Malay heritage area. A trip to Mustafa from here is also easy.

Kampong Glam
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
coloured 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 Centre and one of Singapore’s most
