Why Should You Live in Geylang?
Partly untouched by urban projects and developments and so far spared by the gentrification process that has changed the face of Singapore since the 1970s, Geylang's combination of shophouse scenery and hectic day and nightlife, including foreign workers quarters and karaoke lounges provides an alternative view of elements the rest of modern Singapore generally does not have.
Shophouses along Geylang Road are protected from redevelopment, and many restaurants have sprung up along this major road.
Tanjong Katong Complex, the first air-conditioned HDB shopping complex, was built in the Eastern part of Singapore. Within the neighbourhood, upgrading works to HDB’s Joo Chiat Complex have transformed it into a spanking new shopping hub.
Sri Geylang Serai is a public housing development integrated with the Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre, which is known for being one of the busiest wet markets in Singapore.
