Offering you insight into the origins of the Malay population that graces the Singaporean landscape is the Malay Heritage Centre, which is a must-visit cultural landmark during your time here. The heritage centre is amongst many sightseeing locales in the area, best enjoyed from a convenient and comfortable 3 star hotel in Singapore such as the Days Hotel Singapore. With gracious hospitality and a central location, this economy hotel in Singapore is an ideal host for your cultural forays into the city. Venture into the historic neighbourhood of Kampong Glam, which once held the royal seat of the Malay Sultanate upon arrival in Singapore. Within the grounds of the Malay Heritage Centre, you will come across an impressive replica of a Bugis (a boat) as well as iconic Gelam trees. Explore the centre and be treated to a journey into one of the most important cultural communities in the country, rendered in splendid relief via an array of artefacts, engaging multimedia features, and compelling dioramas, as well as other exhibits. You might also be in luck and be treated to some interesting cultural programmes and workshops that highlight different aspects of Malay society. It is a splendid testament to a significant ethnic community in Singapore, and is a worthy addition to any cultural itinerary.
