Book Now »


The famous (sometimes infamous) Geylang district has the highest concentration of religious organisations in Singapore and is the unofficial red-light area of Singapore. Flanked by 2 rivers, it was originally a Malay community but it now play host to new migrant communities.

At the wee hours of the morning while the rest of Singapore sleeps, this is the only place that still has traffic jams. The word Geylang may mean factory or farm or even the name of a Malay tribe but to Singaporeans, it means great food all times of the day and night.

Let’s explore this colourful neighbourhood of how it exists to feed our mind, souls and bodies.


Sample over 10 dishes of popular Singaporean foods. History of Geylang and the migration from city. Singaporean ethnicities & their religions. Taboos, laws & red-light activities.
