What we say: 4 stars

Also known as Arab Street for the main road running through it, Kampong Glam is historically Singapore's Malay-Muslim neighbourhood.

The streets are lined with palm trees and two-storey shophouses selling Middle Eastern carpets, traditional clothing and various knick-knacks.

The call to prayer sounds out from majestic Sultan Mosque and Bussorah Road opposite it has become a pedestrian area with cafes and a souvenir market.

Zam Zam Cafe has been around for more than a century and is a great spot for people watching over a cup of teh tarik and roti prate.
