What you can expect

Join me for a private tour of the colorful Kampong Glam. Explore the historic streets, admire the conserved shop houses and let me show you through some of the best spots in the area.

We will meet at MRT station. We will then make our way on foot to Kampong Glam. Let’s start our day by having a sumptuous snack of delicious murtabak and roti prata. Or perhaps a dish of lontong or nasi lemak depending on preference. We will then wander down narrow streets, learn about neighborhood history and discover the remnants of the indigenous culture here, Malay and Indonesian folk traditions and middle-eastern goods.

Along the way, you'll spot traditional businesses that have been around for generations, admire the Sultan Mosque and the old Royal Palace. We will make a stop to enjoy a local tea and snacks such as curry puffs, lopes or the local malay kueh depending on availability. We can also sample some tropical fruits depending on availability.

During this tour, we'll visit Bussorah Street, a lively pedestrian area and also the hippest street Haji Lane. When your tour ends, you are free to continue exploring on your own. Perhaps browsing for souvenirs at the nearby Bugis Market?

The tour can be tailored to your wishes, just let me know what would you like to include in the plan.
