Arab Street, Singapore

3.8
#2 of 17 in Neighborhoods in Singapore
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.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
