Looking to explore one of Singapore's oldest and most exciting areas? Make sure to visit the Kampong Gelam district, known as the heart of the Muslim culture!
Kampong Gelam was once reigned by Malay Sultans, but those days are long gone and it has since transformed into one of Singapore's oldest and hippest neighborhoods! The area used to be an ethnic enclave for the Muslim community in the 1800s. Now, it's a melting pot of vibrant cultures from all over the world and you'll find majestic cultural buildings, eye-popping street art, countless restaurants & bars, and trendy shops. And although Kampong Gelang has evolved into a mecca for arts and entertainment, the neighborhood still remains deeply rooted in history, so you'll get a taste of both Singapore’s past & present.
On this tour one of our amazing local guides will take you on a walking trail through Kampong Gelam, sharing all their knowledge about the area's rich history!
