Geylang Entertainment Walk, Singapore

Geylang Entertainment Walk (Self Guided), Singapore

Geylang is a fabulous nighttime option for those who want something a little different from the heady offerings of the city center. The area delights with an old world ambience that it has managed to hang onto, despite the rapidly advancing modernity happening all round it.

Geylang is particularly famous for its red light district and plethora of bars and restaurants. As you tour the area, walk down the lorongs, the small alleys that run perpendicular to Geyland Road. Those with odd numbers are usually packed with restaurants, while the even-numbered alleys host red light district establishments. The visitor who wants some exciting and memorable nighttime entertainment is spoilt for choice. Delight the crowds by picking up the microphone at a fun-filled karaoke lounge, dine in one of the many restaurants offering traditional and modern Singaporean fare and then party hard in a nightclub.

Geylang also has much to please shoppers. Visit the Geylang Serai Market, a two-story complex where you can purchase Malay, Middle Eastern and Indian products, such as textiles, spice and poultry. Stop by the Malay Village where you can purchase ethnic handicrafts, traditional Malay costumes and many other fascinating souvenirs.
