Malay Quarter Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Rose Street is the best place for exploring the Malay Quarter, located on the slopes of Signal Hill and lined with a multitude of brightly coloured houses. The quarter's name comes from the Malays descended from Muslim slaves brought here by the Dutch from their Asian colonies in the late 17C. It also comes from the descendants of rebel Muslim chiefs from Malaysia who have succeeded in preserving their culture and religion. Don't miss the Noon Gun at the foot of the hill, fired at noon on the dot from Monday to Saturday.
