Add a Point to the Map

Bussorah Street is a pedestrian street set right in the heart of Kampong Glam. It is a favored tourist destination and a national heritage site. Little two-storey shop houses line both sides of the street, and together with the Sultan Mosque at the northern end, this creates a magnificient photo opportunity (if only there was no 7-Eleven).

These shop houses have been restored and showcase either First Generation Shop house or Late Shop house style architecture. The First Generation Shop house styled architecture is believed to have been built between 1840 to 1900. They have simple designs and lack ornamentation. Little Shophouse, Merlor's Curios, and Trippies can be found here.

Shophouses with Late Shophouse style architecture were built between 1900 to 1940 and display a mixture of Malayan and European architecture styles. Their exteriors are elaborately ornamented.
