With upsized Ramadan Bazaar, Geylang Serai opens

The streets of Geylang are alive with the sounds and smells of the annual Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar, which is bigger than ever. There are over 700 stall spaces available this year, which are 10 times larger than last year's, and it takes place over 36 days, until April 22. With an upsized edition this year, you'll be spoilt for choice as the bazaar offers a wide variety of delicacies and snacks, from sweet to savoury, spicy to mild, whether traditional or more innovative offerings. The F&B stalls are all either MUIS halal-certified, Muslim-owned, or checked by SuChi Halal Consultants to make sure everything meets halal requirements.

Most of these are located in the Street Bazaar section, a large part of which is located along Engku Aman Road next to Wisma Geylang Serai.

Each stall has a sample-sized affordable option to ensure that everyone can get a taste without the cost of their budget.
