This place has a golden mosque, one of the biggest in Singapore. Surrounding the Mosque there are lots of place to eat with different budget. some of them are open until very late. Singapore scene only comes alive after sunset and temperature is cool down.

This is certainly a hidden gem with live music and a great atmosphere. Went here with a few colleagues after work and had a great nights craic. Narrow streets with brightly coloured fronts, a must for a couple of hours if you're in town.

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
