Most of the stalls in the food centre on the upper level closed in the evening. While there are many other food options around the area I always miss some of my favourites at the food centre such as the Alhambra Satay. With the opening of the Mr. Teh Tarik outlet which is suppose to open 24hrs, I would be... More

This market is not really worth the effort of a special trip, but it's interesting enough to wander through if you happen to be in the area. Surprisingly busy on a Sunday morning, with long queues of people at the various food outlets on the upper level. Unless you have a particular fascination with local markets, or if you actually...

Excellent Malay and Indian food upstairs, an enormous wet market downstairs. the best Nasi padang in Singapore is served at Hajjah Mona nasi padang. The Asam pedas is wonderful, as is the sambal served with it.

My wife and I like to get the whole cultural experience while in Singapore, so I wanted to see places outside the typical tourist places. Unfortunately, the marketplace is typical of what we would see in the Philippines--where my wife is from. Except the people are largely Malay. I suppose I would have enjoyed it more if I had never...

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...

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
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.
