Summary

Since pre-independence days, Geylang Serai has served as a hub for the Malay and Indonesian communities in Singapore.  
 
It was home to the Malay Village, built in 1989 to showcase kampong life and sell ethnic handicrafts, traditional costumes and souvenirs. In the fasting month of Ramadan leading up to Hari Raya Puasa, the area comes alive with performances and bazaars, as families shop for new clothes and delicious goodies. 
 
Follow the artists from Urban Sketchers Singapore through this eastern neighbourhood as they document its key landmarks and scenes of daily life. After you’ve worked up an appetite, feast your eyes on the sketchers’ delicious depictions of nasi padang, biryani , satay, otah and other Malay and Indian dishes at the two-storey Geylang Serai New Market and Food Centre.
Available since: 11/17/2020.
