From cultural landmarks to superb eats and indie boutiques to bespoke cocktail bars, there’s something for everyone in Kampong Glam.

It’s a strange paradox that one of the oldest precincts in Singapore - an important gathering area for the original settlers in Singapore, the Malay and Muslim communities - has over the years embraced modern shops that are bohemian and alternative.

This curious mix of trendy and traditional means that you could be eating nasi padang (Indonesian dishes flavoured with spices and served with rice) in a century-old conservation shophouse, shopping for new wave boutique clothing and chilling out at a brand-new bar on the same visit. 

That’s what creates the buzz in this place and it’s why people keep coming back to the area, whether they’re hipsters or history buffs.
