While Haji Lane is a shopper’s paradise—one of the trendiest in Singapore—it isn’t just for fashion; foodies can head here for an authentic Middle Eastern meal and art lovers will find a collection of colorful murals. In the evenings, many of the restaurants double as live music venues, and coffee shops convert into relaxed hookah bars. The street extends between North Bridge Road and Beach Roach.
Things to Know Before You Go
- Nearly all businesses on Haji Lane accept major credit cards.
- While short and narrow, Haji Lane warrants at least a couple hours (or a half-day) of exploration.
- Don’t forget your camera; the colorful street art is Instagram-worthy.
How to Get There
Haji Lane is in the Muslim Quarter near downtown Singapore. To get there by public transportation, take the MRT to Bugis Station. The entrance to the street is a short walk.
When to Get There
Most of the shops cater to a young clientele, and if you come early in the day, you’re likely to be met with more gated and locked stores than open ones. Whether you’re planning to window shop or supplement your wardrobe, it’s best to visit Haji Lane in the late afternoon or early evening.
After you’ve explored Haji Lane, don’t leave the Muslim Quarter without heading a couple streets over to see Masjid Sultan (Sultan Mosque), one of Singapore’s most recognizable landmarks and a designated national monument. Muscat Street has some of the city’s most interesting architecture.
