Derived from two Malay words, Kampong, which means village, and Glam, a type of tree that used to be abundant here, Kampong Glam was the area allocated to Sultan Hussein Shah in 1823. The neighbourhood was also home to the Malay and Arab communities, who made a living selling foodstuff and merchandises.
After Kampong Glam was declared a conservation area in 1989, its rejuvenated allure has attracted locals and tourists alike, who converge here to enjoy its eclectic mix of traditional and modern shops and eateries.
