Ramadan in Kampong Glam Friday June 23
The holiest month in the Islamic calendar is Ramadan, during which time Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and not even a drop of water is consumed.
During the evenings in this period Bussorah Street in Kampong Glam becomes a hub of activity as Muslims gather to buy food to eat or home to their loved ones. Stall holders entice passers-by with all kinds of Malay, Indonesian, Indian, Arabian and Mediterranean food.
Join in the buzz of the festivities with our annual walking tour and:
Learn how pilgrims prepare for the once-in-lifetime Hajj (pilgimage to Mecca)
Listen to tales of royal palaces, mosques and gardens,
See drapes of lush fabrics and Malay kebayas, glittering gemstones and crystals,
Smell decadent perfumes and frankincense.
Join our Muslim friends to break their fast at 7.10 pm with a meal of rice and curries (included in the price of the tour).
