While exploring the Kampong Glam enclave on a hot, sunny afternoon, cool down and treat yourself to a refreshing scoop of Italian ice cream at aROMA, a new takeaway shop on Arab Street that serves up Gelato.
This humble gelato store features an alluring array of flavours that many might find usual in comparison to its other Italian ice cream counterparts. Be dazzled by the likes of their Chocolate Chili, Strawberry with Mint, Watermelon and Lemon with Basil—all of which happen to be heavy hitters among regulars.
The best part is, all their ice cream is made daily in-house using only fresh and natural ingredients.
Being blessed and content living in a multi-racial society such as Singapore is a privilege that many people overlook. This diversity is what brings our little nation together, fusing people from all backgrounds and cultures into one big and happy family.
With this, it brings us the opportunity to explore these races and their specific cultures in a more in-depth setting—with various monuments, religious buildings, heritage centers and more that are available to us at any time and are generally free to visit.
As a local, you can always take a day off or use a day of your weekend to take a breather and immerse yourself in Singapore’s heritage. If you are visiting from overseas, this will be your definitive guide to do all these things in a span of a day. Here is How to Explore Singapore’s Heritage in A Day For Free.
Kampong Glam is a neighbourhood in Singapore that is so rich with heritage and culture. Located in the vicinity of Bugis and just beside popular areas such as Arab Street and Haji Lane, Kampong Glam houses one of the most iconic structures in Singapore—the Sultan Mosque.
However, Kampong Glam is so much more. Exuding the charm of old heritage and marrying it with modernisation; that’s what Kampong Glam is today.
The entire area is now a very trendy place where bars and cool cafes have been popping up, juxtaposing traditional shop houses selling textiles, antiques and more. It is one neighbourhood in Singapore you must visit if it is your first time to the sunny island. And for locals with no plans this weekend, #BeATouristInYourOwnCity.
