    Even if you are not eating or dining at one of these trendy restaurants, the vibrant colors of this place has lots of nice backdrop for photo shoot. The place really comes alive in the night.

    I walked down this street and didn't find it that exciting. Sure it's ok to see all the interesting shops and restaurants but that's about it. It's where the Muslim community first immigrated to Singapore years ago I think.

    This is a small area, so I don’t see anyone making a day out of it - but it’s definitely a must see in my opinion. Very neat area to look around. I didn’t eat there personally, but there were several appealing restaurants in the area. Sultan Mosque was very impressive.

    As the covid outbreak has led to a ban on international travel for Singaporeans since mid March 2020, weekends are spent visiting local attractions, many of which I last visited as a student or teenager. Little India is a bustling, colourful business community that stirs around midday and becomes busier and more crowded with each hour. It is a community of shophouses centred along Serangoon Road, offering a slice of Indian culture in cosmopolitan Singapore.

    A walk along Serangoon Road (or even a drive through it), is a feast for the senses, with vendors selling everything under the sun (practically all imported and not just from India) from exotic spices, sarees, fabric by the metre, accessories from solid gold jewellery to plastic baubles and great local food, with thosai, roti, biryani being popular choices, as well as non Indian options such as chicken rice, hot dogs and kebab/satay. Weekday evening is a good time to visit if you plan to explore the area on foot and pick up some souvenirs, especially during Deepavali (usually in November) when Serangoon Road is decked out in fairy lights for the festival.

    With the Indian diaspora growing daily over the past decade, enterprising merchants of are importing more ethnic products and seasonal merchandise for a ready market. Today, even Indian festivals hitherto unknown among non Indians and hardly observed by the indigenous Indians in Singapore, such as Pongal, or winter harvest festival (in January) sees Serangoon Road all lit up for six weeks to spread cheer, attract more visitors and drum up sales.

    If you've been to Singapore a lot and want something a little different from the glitz of downtown then the Katong district offers something different.

    From eclectically coloured older houses which are begging to be photographed to a good mix of restaurants and cafes, this is a nice area to take a stroll around and then get some refreshments.

    This is a calm and quite street where one can rekax, dine and do some retail shopping.
    Its a conservation area and we found several wine bars serving traditional or international food. This place give a glimpse of singaporean history and chinese architecture of the houses.

    My family drove through geylang on the eve of Ramadan and the lights were amazing. It looks like driving through a tunnel of lights. The stalls have also increased and many new fusion food were available. What is most convenient is there's an area where you can sit down to eat and best of all, it's aircon. The comfort in this weather is most welcome.

    New buildings with various restaurants and renovate urban park above Tanjon Pagar Mrt station will just astonish people passing by. Either the stylish skylines or the greenery path ways certainly relax and release urban tensions.

    When this riverside street of pubs and restaurants opened more than 2 decades ago, it wasn't as popular as the nearby Clark Quay or Boat Quay as they were closer to the business districts for the happy hour crowds. Thus since then this riverside street, being in an upper class condominium residential areas appealed to those whom prefer a quieter evening. Better ambience and a romantic evening can be had whether you wine and dine or just take a walk down the river. Today, in the Covid19 pandemic, the scene is much different. Since tourism, pubbing and clubbing is non existent, working from home encouraged thus much less working crowd in the business districts, Boat Quay and Clark Quay are quiet daily and begs for business while Robertson Quay is bustling with diners daily. Mostly residents in the area love the fact that you can now dine out, stay on for a drink till late. Afterall currently all drinking activities has to end at 1030pm thus no point going far. A change of fortune and Robertson Quay is well poised for a boom for now.

    Cute street with lots of shops. Very friendly people, with tons of food options. Quaint family rum shops that house a variety of things. Colourful streets that are great for photo ops!

    The central business district is filled with skyscrapers, like most of the central business districts in other countries. The historical part of this was that Singapore was striving on trade in the beginning. The Singapore river was a very busy port in those days with bum boats transporting goods from bigger ships anchored out in the sea. This is where it all began!
