Joo Chiat Road junction during Geylang Serai Bazaar and light-up 2017

Geylang Serai Bazaar 2017 – Jun 14, 2017

Popped over to the Geylang Serai Bazaar and light-up for a look-see. I haven’t visited this for seven years, not after moving away from Geylang in 2010. Lots of online coverage piqued my interest, and so I decided to make a trip to see how it’s like nowadays.

It’s large. Much larger than the ones I used to stroll by. I can’t remember exactly as it’s been a while, and there’s been lots of changes in the area, but I think the current bazaar covers what was once the Malay Village. There are also long rows of stalls lining one side of Geylang Road, all the way from Haig Road to Joo Chiat. Definitely some major festive preparation ongoing here! The whole area was abuzz with activity, and full of people of all ethnicities.
