A short hop away is Kampong Glam which is the second part of our tour. We'll visit small local eateries and try Indonesian and Malay inspired dishes.

What To Expect

At the heart of Little India, the Tekka centre is a hive of food and activity. Your guide will introduce you to one of Singapore's best wet markets. You'll explore the narrow aisles past local vendors selling every herb and spice you can imagine. See where our hawkers get their produce and learn how Singapore imports different types of food.
The Tekka centre also houses a fantastic hawker centre. We will spend time eating dishes from some of our favourite hawkers here. It is a great spot to learn about local life and to immerse yourself fully. Sitting down and eating with the locals is a real experience and one you won't forget.

Little India
Little India is a fascinating area to explore. Your guide will show you the hidden spots in this bustling neighbourhood. We will visit local food vendors and learn about their lives and their dishes. We'll try specialities like fresh briyani, fragrant dosa and mouth watering sweets.
Little India is one of the oldest areas of Singapore. It is the epi-centre of Singapore's Indian community and as such is a must visit for every food lover. As well as great food the area is awash with the colours of fresh flower garlands that are sold on the streets. A multitude of shrines and temples appear on our route through the back streets. We'll see small family run shops and learn about the area's history and it's importance to Singapore today. Bathed in stunning street art and full of smiling residents, this is one of our favourite places to visit in Singapore.

Arab Street
Arab street is famous in Singapore for it's carpet and lamp shops. Located in Kampong Glam the street is teaming with small shops and businesses that have been here for generations. It is also a great place to eat.
The closeness to the Sultan mosque means that there are many Malay and Indonesian inspired food places for us to enjoy.
The whole area was given to the Sultan of Johor in the 19th century. We can visit the old palace which is now a Malay heritage centre. We will also visit the Sultan mosque with its huge golden dome. This is one of the most famous mosques in Singapore and is always full of life.
The small pedestrianised streets off Arab street provide us with a chance to show you our favourite hidden gems. This area has a retained a lot of old school charm. The small shophouses that once housed Chinese labourers are now home to small boutiques and cafes. It's a great place to explore and eat.

Kampong Glam
Kampong Glam was named after the Gelam tree that used to grow in abundance here. In the 19th century when the British divided Singapore, this area was given to the Sultan of Johor. Over the years many Malay families settled here. It has remained one of the most important Malay areas in Singapore.
Although Kampong Glam is very close to the city, once you are in it's tiny back streets you will feel a million miles away. Local street artists have done an amazing job in creating a walk in art gallery down every alley. The small shophouses have been beautifully restored and now house some fantastic places to eat and drink.
There is a village feel about the place that you don't get in many other parts of Singapore. Some families have had their shops here for generations. We'll visit some of our favourites enjoying the sites, sounds and of course tastes along the way.
