Arab street is in the Muslim community area.....
What a busy, bustling street this was with trafffic and pedestrians!

Old shop houses, bazaar style shopping, heaps and heaps of beautiful fabrics for sale, a great place to buy from if you are a Dress maker.
This area is also renowned for batiks from Indonesia and Malaysia, which have been hand-made and sold in sarong lengths. Machine-printed batik with traditional designs is also available by the metre or in ready-made clothing including shorts, sundresses, ties, etc and much more.

There is quite a bit of caneware, rattan and straw products, trinkets, just a fun place to explore, and don't forget to haggle if you want to buy!
