Muslim Quarter

Hmmm, looks familiar...


The winner is Andy! The picture was taken in the Arab quarter in Singapore. While not technically Arab street I decided to give it to Andy anyway. The funky Haji Lane is just around the corner and is a must visit for those looking for independent clothing stores and cool cafes. I really loved the color, food and vibrancy of this area. It just goes to show you that Singapore can be interesting ;)

Please go check out Andy’s website Sharing Travel Experiences. Its a great resource for travelers as well as fun read for anyone spending a day on the couch.

Welcome to Travel Photo Contest Friday. If you’re a new friend, each week I post a beautiful picture (at least I think so) from my travels and you guess where it is. The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country, and Place) will win a link back to their blog with the anchor text of their choice in this post (keep it clean and relevant).

This week I’ve included a lot potential clues to help us bounce back from difficult one last week. Leave your guess and recent post in the comment section below. Last week no one was able to guess the location of St. Blaise in Dubrovnik, Croatia so good luck this week.

I will also stumble and review the latest post of anyone who leaves a comment even if the winner has already been picked (up until next Thursday). I’m a bit behind on the Stumbles and reviews as I’m swamped with work at the moment, but don’t worry I always get you in the end. Yes, the prizes heavily favor the blogging and travel geeks amongst us. If you don’t have a website, then leave your favorite website or better yet a charity that deserves attention.

Good luck!

Guesses aside, all comments are welcome!

    I think it’s looking towards Arab street, on North Bridge road, Singapore. Great pic!

    I think it’s North Bridge Road looking towards Arab Street in Singapore!

  3. It’s definitely Singapore. The road sign says “North Bridge rd” and the Tel no: “65354700″ is a Singaporean number and the numerous shop signage are all Singaporean addresses. Can’t be more specific than that right? Since North Bridge road is a long stretch, I echo the place should be near Malay Heritage Centre or Arab St. As a Singaporean, its a shame I can’t remember stepping foot in this area, probably drove past though. At the same time, I’m proud that many people at least recognize the place is in Singapore!

    I agree with the others, It appears to be Singapore. I can’t remember the name of that mosque but I know I’ve been there!
