Geylang: The Final Frontier?


Price: S$70 / ticket

Geylang conjures up an image of a red-light district, which indeed it is. But it’s so much more than brothels and cheap eats.

Scratch the surface and you'll find a wonderful ethnic mélange with a dominant Chinese character. Today’s Geylang is home to numerous Chinese religious associations and temples, and also a mosque named after a female benefactor, plus churches and a Hindu temple. We’ll zig-zag the “lorongs” (lanes) to delight in best examples of “Chinese Baroque” architecture with the lavish use of tiles and ornate plasterwork and further, we will visit some beautiful homes and a traditional Chinese instruments shop.

Along the way, we’ll discover many other hidden facets of Geylang, an under-rated and misunderstood gem!
