Arab Street Singapore
Lying between Victoria Street and Beach Road, in the Kampong Glam area is Arab Street. In 1822, the area was mapped out to be the Muslim quarters in Singapore. Arab street soon flourished and became the main shopping street. To date, it is an area where you have to visit in Singapore.
Arab street is still a key Muslim centre in Singapore with the Sultan Mosque as the heart of Kampong Glam. Moving on to the present day, Arab Street now houses many chic shops and eateries alongside the traditional textile, aromatics and handicraft shops.
First generation shophouses from 1840-1900 could still be found in Arab Street.
The other attraction you can find in Arab street, is just a lane away. It is Haji Lane, a place where you have to visit in Singapore.
Haji Lane is a narrow back alley in the heart of the Arab quarter. It has now become world famous, although it may not look like much at first glance. Haji Lane is in fact a hip and trendy shopping destination for young Singaporeans, who come here to shop for cult labels and vintage clothing in the off beat boutiques.
As day turns into night, seats from the small cafes, bars and restaurants spill out into the street and neighbouring five-foot ways, encouraging the clientele to kick back and lose track of time.
We personally love Arab street for its nostalgic charm and the laid back feel to the whole place. It has that vibe where you are simply transported to time when things were slow and easy. It is like being in an era gone by.
So if anyone ask you for places to visit in Singapore, then tell them that Arab street and Haji Lane is where they have to visit in Singapore.
