I have been wanting to visit Kampong Glam for the longest time and an opportunity presented itself after a meeting in town today. Traditionally a Malay residential area with ethnic-based activities, it is today a very touristy area. Thank goodness I blended in quite well in my casual attire and digital camera. Several shopkeepers even asked me where I came from. One asked "You're from L.A?" I simply smiled. Anyway, enjoy the tour with me...
The beautiful Sultan Mosque.
Another view of the mosque.
It is today a neat little shopping enclave for textiles and regional handicrafts.

Rattan goods for sale.
A quaint looking little kiosk. I wish it were for sale.
