Owner description: Its major landmark, the Sultan Mosque, sits in the heart of this enclave and is open to all visitors, as is the nearby Malay Heritage Centre, where you’ll learn about Malay history and culture.

Lovely place to walk around and browse. Try the smaller lanes sich as Haji Lane and Arab Street, they have plenty of small shops that sells unique stuff.

Sultan Mosque is of course major attraction in this area, but it's not the only reason to come here.Little different vibe than any other place in S'pore. Nice little shops(remember bargaining) and some good restaurants too.

We had a meeting at the Kampong Glam Community Club, so decided to wander around the area a bit, to catch up on its vibe. We walked from Lavender MRT station. The mature trees provide shade to make walking through the neighbourhood more pleasant than they otherwise would be - and they also add to the pleasant character of the area. Though ostensibly Malay, we found a Thai (actually Isaan, northeastern Thai) sundries market among other establishments. So, as usual for Singapore, there is a blend to each neighbourhood that adds character. If you're looking for an "inner suburban" area to walk through - this might be a candidate.

Being a Muslim area shouldn't put you off coming here. You will probably see less Muslims here then in Sydney and this area is very safe. Sultan Mosque is quite pretty for a few photos from Arab Street. There is heaps of food on offer in different restaurants and Haji Lane is worth a visit. If you walk from Bugis MRT station don't forget to have a peak inside of Parkview Square, a really great art deco building.

this time,I did stay in Kampong Glam,the Muslim area.As Indonesian moslem,I like this area not only for halal food and some of Melayu-Padang food avalaible. The mosque gave me an alert to pray :) The old shophouses are smaller than in Chinatown area and the beauty can be seen day and night.The Bussorah st. that lies in the heart of the kampong is always busy day and night because-mostly-tourists/traveler pass the street, take a look to the shops,tasting the Melayu to India cuisine in the day till late afternoon,and while you are here don't forget enjoying the mediteranean to middle east food,sisha,beers,western cakes in ala fresco table along the street at night.I am surprised.
