The Malay-Muslim ethnic enclave of Kampong Glam is the city state’s hipster ’hood and buzzing creative hub. The Old Lion City juxtaposes with new Singapore in the area around Arab Street – Bussorah Street, Haji and Bali Lanes and Muscat Street. It’s a haven for boutiques selling brightly coloured textiles, aromatic tea and Persian rugs; come in the mood for a wander and a haggle. Or just relax with an ice cream and an artisanal coffee at the Working Title café and watch the world go by. §
