Arab Street (Kampong Glam) has a ton of beautiful old shophouses that line the streets with many unique shops and a vibrant street life. It’s situated a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle of Bugis.

Previously known as the Muslim Quarter because of the strong presence of the Muslim community in the 50’s. Haji Lane has since been given a facelift, and has turned into a hipster’s paradise. Be sure to look out for the delightful murals around which you’d fall in love with for sure.

Apart from the many unique shops, there are also many charming cafes for a quick coffee break. Walk towards Baghdad Street and you will have an amazing view of the golden onion domes of the grand Sultan Mosque or Masjid Sultan.

We will then take a short drive to one of the oldest streets in Singapore.

Telok Ayer Street is one of the oldest roads in Singapore. It was once the first landing spot for migrants that arrived Singapore by sea.

Some of the oldest architecture buildings in Singapore are located here.

Places of interest:

• Thian Hock Keng is not only a living-monument and architectural masterpiece but also an important stakeholder in Singapore’s history. It started as a small joss house in 1821-1822.

• Ying Fo Fui Kun is a Hakka clan association in Singapore and its clan house was also built in 1881-1822,

• We also visit the Nagore Durgha. A shrine built between 1828 – 1830 to commemorate a visit to the island by an Indian Muslim holy man who was travelling around Southeast Asia preaching Islam.

• Yu Huang Gong (former Keng Teck Whay Building – founded by 36 Peranakan merchants in 1831 – the only surviving Peranakan ancestral hall and clan complex in Singapore) is Taoist temple today.

• Al-Abrar Mosque, founded in 1827 for India Muslims

• Telok Ayer Methodist Church which started in 1889 in a shophouse before moving to its current premises in 1925.

After visiting all of the beautiful architecture, we will walk across to Sago lane, Sago Street, Smith Street and Pagoda Street where we will learn about the interesting history of life in Singapore from the 18th Century.

This marks the end of the tour!
