Haji Lane

Shop and Eat in Kampong Glam
Kampong Glam is a culturally rich district bordered by Little India and Bugis, one of Singapore's oldest and most storied neighborhoods. (Bugis was once known for transvestites.) But today Kampong Glam is becoming the hub for artisan foods and crafts, most of them sold out of monochrome storefronts on Haji Lane. Wander the alleyway to discover clothing, accessories, and home decor made in Singapore and nearby countries; multicolored murals; hidden cafes; and lively bars that often host music acts. Just off the main drag, Maison Ikkopu is a hipster haven of single-batch and cold-brew coffee as well as eclectic lunch dishes. Nearby, Symmetry is the best spot for weekend brunch, especially if you're a sucker for truffle eggs and Aussie-style flat whites. For something more traditional, don't leave the area without wandering Arab Street, eating laksa at Kampong Glam Cafe, and enjoying the sights—from hanging strands of marigolds in Little India to the impressive Sultan Mosque.

Haji Lane

An alternative to Singapore's glitzy shopping, Haji Lane is an alley of old shophouses that the city's young, independent designers have turned into funky boutiques and bar/cafés. Shoppers will find everything from clothes and shoes to furnishings and original art.
