Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city centre, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colourful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.

"Authentic experience "
reviewed 30 January 2020 by janjastokelj
I was interested to try something bit different, so I headed to this market in Geyland not far away from the East Coast park. I haven't tried Malaysian food before and I didn't want to order a particular dish, so I just asked the old lady about each ingredient and decided there and then. I enjoyed the experience very much,...
In the present busy life schedule this is a must place to visit. I found the peace and tranquility here, sitting in the quietness relieves the stress and answers a lot of running questions in your mind.
I recommend to visit here surely

"Interesting Monastery Complex"
reviewed 19 November 2019 by plwh888
Foo Hai Ch'an Monastery was founded in 1935 by Taiwan-born Japan-ordained Venerable Hong Zong who came to popularise Buddhism in Singapore. He was succeeded by Venerable Miao Shou in 1975. The monastery founded the present day Ren Ci Hospital and Medicare Centre at Novena.
There are few interesting buildings within its complex, the main building is the prayer hall houses...
Delicious simple food. I ordered from food delivery. Century egg pork porridge from Xin Bee Congee (#01-191) & fried carrot cake (#01-26) . Both are delicious! The porridge is very traditional hainanese style, tasty and smooth. Large pieces of century egg and pork balls. It also comes with fried dough stick. The carrot cake is so fragrant and not too...
It was a random google search that I have done when I was around the neighborhood and I was really amazed that there is such a hidden cafe within the Old Airport area!
Very open concept cafe where you can see the whole cafe on once glance. The sunlight shines through the glass wall of the cafe and it's really...
Forget hygiene and etiquette....wait for a table as busy waiters whizz past you and you are at their mercy waiting to be acknowledged as a waiting customer. Frog bones and food debris get wiped off under your gaze and you order the porridge, the main highlight. Enjoy the tasty semi spicy frogs legs porridge...understand what this cuisine is as first...
we loved our stay here. the room was clean quiet and the staff helpful and friendly. We also loved the location. approx. halfway between the airport and centre. Transport and shopping excellent. This area of Singapore is vibrant. will definitely recommend a stay. Maureen is an angel as are her colleagues too.
Th soundproof of room is not so good, it will be better to improve the soundproof. I can easily hear the sound of water flow of next room. The counter staff is very kind and provide the considerate answer for the customer.
Just returned from an 8 night stay.
We booked to visit family member in University. Didn’t need a fancy holiday hotel, so the Lilly fitted our needs fine. Staff very friendly and helpful. Location is the red light area of Singapore. A few bars that was obvious, but no issues. Many restaurants and lots of family’s and people around.
It was a nice and clean hotel in 10-15 minute taxi from the airport. Shopping center, market, restaurants are located nearby. We are satisfied with one night stay for transit.
I don't quite remember why I picked this hotel but everything was a further walk than expected. The walk to Kallang MRT station is too long. The walk to the two "nearby" hawker centers is also too long.
just enough space to open your suitcase. The towels also have their name on it. I guess to remind people where they...
