I have always loved visiting markets and places where the local people buy food. There is a special atmosphere around such places, they are vivid and colorful. Fresh vegies and fruit, fish and what you can or cannot imagine for your kitchen. They sell clothes suitable for muslim women too. The food in the hawker centre was delicious and cheap.

It's best to buy where locals buy, and this market is no exception. Come with recipes in mind, and you'll leave with full bags. A great way to spend an hour or so.

My first visit here even though I've returned to Singapore multiple times. Location is extremely accessible by buses which stops within walking distance. Eat all the yummy local Malay dishes here.....nasi padang, mee siam, soto, mee rebus, satay, cakes, chicken rice, etc. Also Indian biryani, soup kembing, rojak., teh tarik, rose ice drinks & bandung. etc. There are a couple...

There is a huge variety of food to buy- I didn't explore the dry are of the markets- but from walking past it looks well... More

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.
