Party, shop, eat, and more at historic neighbourhood
As Singapore's Malay heritage enclave, Kampong Glam is a wonderful place to get to know our nation's Malay roots and culture. Its historical significance does not make the district old or merely a destination for school learning journeys. Thanks to conservation efforts, many hip new attractions and events have popped up alongside the ornate mosques, textile shops and traditional architecture. This mix of old and new makes Kampong Glam a lively place to spend your day or evening with your loved ones.
Here are some of our favourite events and activities to do at Kampong Glam...
4. Snap photos with the colourful wall murals
Like many of Singapore’s heritage districts, Kampong Glam features lots of gorgeous art on its walls. Take a walk along the colourful streets of Haji Lane, Aliwal Street, Baghdad Street and more, and you will find a variety of eye-catching murals done by talented local street artists. On top of murals, the shophouses as well as the Sultan Mosque make for charming photos too. Exploring the art and architecture is a great way to get to know the neighbourhood in the little alleys, while getting some beautiful photos for the ‘gram!
