Geylang Tips (7)

Malay Village - a can't miss!

If you find yourself in Geylang, be sure to check out the Malay village for an eye-opening vision into local culture. Go with a positive attitude and an open mind, the locals will welcome you with open arms. I was personally on a mancation and using Francis McDougal's singapore guide to find some (special) massage places, but I'd HIGHLY recommend at least a couple hours in Malay village, no matter what your reasons for being in Geylang are! ;-)

Geylang- an overview.

Well what to say about Geylang, Singapore! The most famous Red Light Area. Streets are managed by Lorong where the even and odd numbers are situated opposite the road. During day time it is an open air market. Shopping heaven for people with low income. During night the streets are full of beautiful girls and their pimps. There are plenty of transit hotels, body massage parlors and of course brothels. You can find girls from different Asian countries. The place is cheap, clean and safe. I think prostitution is legal in Singapore, because I saw police patrolling just to make sure no body is gonna hurt. I didn't ask anything to the girls or their pimps, so don't know about the price, but saw banners at the hotels something around S$15-S$30 for 1 or 2 hours. If you are looking for some fun, you can give it a try. Good Luck and Play Safe!

Open air market

I had the opportunity to spend some hours in Geylang, begin of afternoon, before leaving Singapore by Bus (bus station located in Lavender street, 10 minutes walk from Geylang).

Geylang is well known to be the (or one of the) red light disctrict, but this was not visible for me at that time. I realy appreciate this place and the open air market.

Perception during the night is totaly different, in my understanding.
The road and streets are managed as Lorong here, and the system was not so clear for me.

Famous Singapore Eateries

There are many famous local food in Geylang area. Some of them are the frog leg claypot porridge, steamboat teochew fish head and Fried Hokkien Mee.

But this area is an area with many activities, for example, prostitution, illegal gambling etc.

I advice ladies to go in groups and/or with guys.

Malay Village

A little bit tired but they are trying to up date it, the Malay Village is interesting. You wandered through exhibits that showed what it was like to live in the 1950's. They had wedding exhibits as well as transport, art etc. This was the first part of Singapore that I came across cats which as a cat lover I really loved.

Geylang

Geylang is one of the wonderful ethnic areas that exist in Singapore. It is mainly a Chinese area but there is also a mosque and an Indian presence. There are good Chinese restaurants and shops and some great examples of older Singapore style architecture with the classis 5 foot ways.

It is also quite a good place for budget accommodation. However, be aware that this is one of the main red light districts of Singapore. The small roads that run perpendicular to the main roads in Geylang are called Lorongs. On one side of Geylang Road there are odd numbered Lorongs with the even ones on the other side.
On the even numbered Lorongs can be found a number of brothels and there are working girls (and lady boys) plying their trade on the streets. Like all of Singapore it is quite safe and apart from being propositioned you won't have any trouble but it may not be the type of environment in which you wish to stay.
