Arab Street not only refers to a street, but also a neighborhood in Singapore. It is located in Kampong Glam, Singapore downtown. This place offers a very different ambiance from the rest of the country, as it has retained most of its Muslim traditions. Masjid Sultan which means Sultan Mosque in Malay, is a very popular place of worship. We couldn't get in the Mosque, as they don't allow tourists these days.
Haji Lane is yet another popular street, located in the Arab Street neighborhood. It has gained a lot of tourist attraction lately for its Sheesha Bars aka Hookah Cafes. You can buy plenty of Arab & Muslim clothes, traditional oil based perfumes and buy Arabic books here. Middle Eastern restaurants are available in plenty and you can choose between Egyptian, Turkish, Iranian and other restaurants.
