Carpet sellers, fabric shops, a lovely mosque and some fantastic Middle-Eastern food: that's Arab Street. More picturesque in my opinion than Little India, a good way to kill a couple of hours is to wander thru first one, and then the other of these colorful neighborhoods, snacking as you go.Recommended for:

Arab Street is such a lively and interesting street based in the Arab Quarter. Singapore has a gentrified feel to the city-state, so it's refreshing to see a genuine part of the city that feels unvarnished. Plus, there's a majestic looking mosque located here, and it's the oldest in Singapore.Recommended for:

If you want to avoid all the hustle and bustle of Singapore, visit Arab Street. You will see the other side of Singapore where it feels like time "moves slower" compared to the rest of the city. I enjoyed browsing all the little shops at Arab Street and next door Haj Lane

I love Arab street, it has an authentic feel of old Singapore. A walk down Haji Lane and you can enjoy good Halal Food, smoke a Sheesha pipe and hear live music. Not your style? Awesome Mexican food awaits you at Piedra Negra located at the corner of Haji Lane and Beach Road across from the Parkroyal hotel!

Singapore is always knocked for being a little too new and sterile, too Disneyland Asia. I think that's why I like Arab Street (and Little India too). There's still an authentic feeling here-- The restaurants and cafes feel "real"...they've less of a trendy atmosphere and are a lot more relaxed. Browse the fabric and rug shops, eat some middle eastern or halal Indian food, and make a point to come back at night to smoke some sheesha at a cafe. The latter is popular amongst the younger generation here, and the crowd makes for a fun experience.
I've only been here a handful of times, but I think I'll make it a point to spend some wandering the streets on my next visit.
