Kampong Glam audio tour: Wander through the heart of Malay culture in Singapore

Duration

clock1 day 6 hours 45 minutes

Overview

    Did you know that Malay is Singapore's National Language? Not English or Mandarin! Want to know why? Take a self guided audio tour around Kampong Glam for some clues.

    This self guided audio tour traces the historical influence of Malays in Chinese-dominated Singapore.

    Despite the proliferation of 'unIslamic' bars and restaurants serving alcohol, Malay influence is abundant in central Singapore's Kampong Glam district. It's home to the Malay ruler's historical palace and was once the centre of the region's Haj trade – a trade serviced by a port located within walking distance from the Sultan's palace, on nearby Beach Road.

    Modern Singapore is immersed in Malay food, culture, traditions and language – the local 'Singlish' tongue could not exist without Malay – and the city's Malay history is an essential part of truly experiencing Singapore!
