Arab Street, Singapore

3.8
Explore one of Singapore's key cultural hubs at Arab Street. As the name suggests, the district boasts a strong Arabic history and still displays that flavor today. Examine colorful textiles in cozy shops, stop for a chai in one of the many cafes, or take a quiet moment to appreciate the architecture of a serene mosque. Taste fragrant Middle Eastern foods or share a shisha--flavored tobacco smoked through a lavishly decorated pipe--with friends. Arab Street is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Singapore Edition.
