Singapore STREETSCAPE - Charming Arab Street

The Sultan of Singapore and his Malay followers once resided here. This has been a historically important area in Singapore since its founding.

Today, it is a conservation zone.

Panoramic overview - the area can be spotted by the red roofs of the rows of shophouses



Here are some pics I'd taken in the area

Wow, I never realized how many old buildings the city had. I am more impressed by what is happening at street level than the skyline.
