Ranked 21 among Places to Visit in Singapore
Ideal Time: 2-3 hours
Singapore is filled with streets and neighbourhoods dedicated to a specific culture such as Chinatown or Little India. Arab Street is one such street that retains the beautiful Arab culture while also being in the know of the trends of the world. The street gets its name from history, as an Arab merchant owned it and also because it was known to be an Arab Kampong or village. The shops and stores on both sides of the street proudly display and highlight all that the Arab culture has to offer. The street is splashed with colours and a vivacious, bustling, yet tranquil and entrancing atmosphere. The area around Arab Street includes the Bussorah Street, Haji and Bali Lanes and Muscat Street which together forms the Muslim Quarter.
The authentic street has people pouring in for its classic patterns and colours splashed over its walls. The street makes a great place for photographers and people curious about unique knick-knacks not found in ordinary malls. The Masjid Sultan Mosque with its beautiful golden dome looms over the street. The Mosque is Singapore's national mosque and has been dated back to early 1800s. The street is also home to the Projector, a 40 year old cinema that is unlike any with its diverse array of local as well as international films and events. The street clearly holds a lot of history while still being modern and that awes everyone who visits Arab Street. It is also best enjoyed during the month of Ramadan when the entire place comes to life and doubles the celebration and joy of Ramadan.
