Arab street runs parallel to Ophir road & stretches from Rochor canal road on one side & ends at the junction of Beach road in the central part of Singapore. Similar to China town & Little India, it is a conservation area under Kampong Glam. However, the back drop to this place at night can be a glittering nearby modern building from few angles.
If arriving by train Bugis is the nearest station. More than 25 bus routes pass via nearby North Bridge road, Victoria street, Ophir road & beach road. Other nearby roads have names like Baghdad street, Bussorah street, Jalan Sultan etc.
The iconic structure nearby is that of a mosque with golden dome. Minarets of the mosque are illuminated after evening with changing lights. If properly dressed, one is allowed to visit this religious place during visiting hours. Village hotel located above Golden Landmark shopping complex is at a stone’s throw away.
The entire area has unique shop houses that offer fabric, carpet, handicrafts, perfume, carpet & lot of café & restaurants serving halal food. This is charming place with a lot of history attached to it & you will notice a different vibe that is missing in the shopping malls anywhere.
