Geylang in Singapore is a foodie paradise, and the place to visit to try the wide variety of local dishes and specialities, with hundreds of food stalls lining the streets of this neighbourhood. The area is east of the city’s Central Business District and can be accessed via the MRT/subway, with four stops helping you travel around the area: Aljunied, Kallang, ... More>Dakota, Mountbatten and Paya Lebar. There is a shophouse vibe to Geylang, and during the day the area is busy with a multicultural mix of friendly locals. Finding hotels in Geylang is simple – clean and basic as well as mid-range are the order of the day. The area was once better known as the red light district of Singapore, but this has been cleared up to some extent – although it is frustratingly difficult for those in charge to shut it down completely. Despite this thorn in its side, it is the place to come and try chilli crab, roti, laksa and duck with rice. In fact, many Singaporeans will forgo their air-conditioning and tablecloths to get a bowl of fresh noodles in this part of town. The East Coast Park is the largest on the island, and is a great chill out spot, or even to try out some water sports.
