This is my usual go to place and many local Malays for halal food, muslim garbs, wet market, and for that unique malay herbs, spices or even tonics and ointments. Too much too be seen here especially if you are not a local. It gets crowded on weekends and public holidays, and especially so when it's nearing Eid Fitr or... More

Singapore is definitely a very modern city in a state of flux. The Geylang market was built when the Singaporians realised they had destroyed too much of there history so although not old there is a traditional Singaporean market feel about it with lots of stall selling lots of different things and of course food stalls selling lots of different...

I developed a craving for Nasi Briyani this morning and it didn’t go away, after several hours. I decided to go to Geylang Serai for a particular stall I patronised 2 years ago. When I arrived, it was closed. No choice. I walked around toying with the idea of Nasi Padang, which there were several stalls with queues. However, I... More

When one thinks of Singapore, only the well-publicized tourists attractions are brought to mind. Geylang Serai is usually mentioned in a passing remark - if at all. Many visitors are not aware that Geylang Serai is the focal point of the Malay community in Singapore. It is the heart and soul of the Malays here. If you want a good,... More

Visiting this market will result in a different experience from other markets. True, this market is not top in cleanliness, but the stores here are different from what you will normally see in Singapore. Visit during hari raya for huge crowds!

A nice place to get variety of Malay foods and reasonable prices at the wet market. It is a shame though most food stalls choose to close early in the afternoon and quite a number choose not to open for a few days during the week.

If you'd like to try or you're a Malay food fan, this is the place to go. A lot of Malay food shops are here. Nasi biryani, Nasi Padang, Kambing Soup (mutton soup), Tulang soup (mutton bone soup), Tulang Merah, Roti Prata, Murtabak, Mee Rubus, Roti John, Satay, many so on. I often come here to have Kambing Soup which... More

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
Geylang
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city center, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colorful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
