Kampong Glam is a palette of colour. From the small haberdasheries along Bussorah Street – with its two-story shophouses on either side – you can buy decorative materials, buttons and ribbons. It’s a good place to buy hand-made souvenirs too. One of the most popular pastimes of Kampong Glam is smoking a hookah pipe and sipping tea (despite the heat and humidity) at an outdoor restaurant, while watching the world go by. The golden dome of the largest mosque in the country, Sultan Masjid, can be seen at the end of the palm tree lined walkway.
