Arab Street is a repository of culture for Singapore's Muslim community, with its focal point being the Sultan Mosque. Here, you will find the biggest concentration of halal restaurants and shops selling merchandise from all over the Islamic world. These shops are a riot of color, displaying textiles, antiques, jewelery, artifacts and basket ware. Textile stores are the most prominent, their walls and doorways draped with vibrant rolls of cloths and batiks. At one end of Arab Street near North Bridge Road, you may even get to mix your own perfume from a selection of aromatics like musk, lavender, honeysuckle and jasmine.
