In Singapore’s multi ethnic/racial society, this is the Malay’s equivalent of Chinatown. Its not purely a tourism attraction but it gives an insight into the Malays in Singapore for those who want to know more about Malays in general. Halal food is easy to find...More

A shopping complex catering to local Malays selling cheap fabrics to decorate homes. An old shopping complex just opposite the infamous Geylang Serai Market. Usually very busy during the weekends. Also a supermarket and an eatery available.

quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners
enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy
noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are
