Arab Street Singapore

Why you should visit Singapore’s Arab Street in the early morning

I like Arab Street for its food and the pretty Sultan Mosque.

But whenever I am in the area, the sun is shining too brightly and I feel dehydrated from walking around. There is just too much noise and people–the tourists with their gigantic cameras, cars waiting for the green light and shops laying out their wares on the sidewalk.

It’s sometimes a little too much to handle.

One day, I had the chance to visit Arab Street early in the morning around 7am. It was a different Arab Street without the people and the cars.

It was a little surreal but I liked it. The sun wasn’t out yet and the people were still away.
