Here, you'll find the Malay Heritage Centre, once the Istana (palace) of Singapore’s Malay royalty, which showcases Malay history, customs and traditional dance and music performances. The most famous landmark is the Sultan Mosque, Singapore’s biggest mosque, recognisable by its majestic golden dome. For a spot of shopping, head to Bussorah Mall and Arab Street for handicrafts, gorgeous batik and silk fabrics, essential oils and exquisite perfume bottles. Or wander through the many charming side streets including Haji Lane and discover some surprising finds like the White Room that boasts designer accessories and a small collection of designer labels such as Yohji Yamamoto and John Galliano. Don't forget to visit the area’s many eateries and restaurants, and enjoy delicious nasi padang (white rice served with a selection of curried meat, seafood and vegetables) and teh tarik (tea with evaporated milk that's poured back and forth between a container and a glass).
