It is a place rich with Malay culture and influence. Home to a large Malay population since the 1920s when the residents from Kampong Glam were relocated here, your senses will be treated to a wondrous and delicious array of authentic Malay cuisine, ethnic goods, arts and crafts.
Shops are packed close to each other, bringing to mind the rustic charm of Singapore in the mid-80s. You will stumble upon treasures like Balinese-themed home décor and other great gift ideas for friends and family.
If what you see in Geylang Serai is not enough, keep walking until you reach the link that leads you to Joo Chiat Complex which is chock full of Malay textiles, crafts, jewellery and traditional clothing!
*Note: Pasar Geylang Serai is relatively easy to access. It takes 5-10 mins to walk there from the Paya Lebar MRT (EW8) Station. If you are driving, Jalan Pasar Bahru would be the nearest public carpark (ERP) to the market.
