Specialising in Malay textiles, crafts, jewellery and traditional clothing, Joo Chiat Complex is bustling with activity, especially during Hari Raya. Recently renovated, this 25-year-old shopping complex features rows of shops selling everything from traditional Indonesia herbs and remedies, to gorgeous Kebayas (traditional Peranakan costume).
Here, you’ll also find traditional Malay wear such as Baju Kurung (Malay traditional costume for women), Baju Melayus (Malay traditional costume for men) and Hijabs (Muslim headwear), available in a variety of designs and colours, complete with exquisite brooches and pins. You can even tailor your own traditional costumes at the numerous tailors within the mall. Gold jewellery in elaborate and flowery designs can also be found here, and are a favourite among the Boyanese.
Drop by Joo Chiat Complex this Hari Raya with your whole family and stock up on festive goodies such as Malay cookies and cakes, as well as new clothes for this joyous occasion.
