Not much of a shopping street. Mainly sightseeing. A nice mosque there but not allowed to enter. Quite hot to walk in the day, maybe the evening/night would be better.

Had a mini food bazaar beside Sultan's Mosque. There were a variety and selection of food but tended to be abit pricey. Good alternative to food bazaar at Kampung Glam... though not as many variety.

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
