Shopping in Geylang Serai

This ethnic enclave of the Malays is another colourful exotic sight to soak in. Right in its midst is the Malay Village, a showcase of traditional business and cultural activities which bring back sweet memories of old kampong days. Its shops display a potpourri of items from handicrafts, rugs and fabrics to furniture and antiques.

Drop by the wet market and indulge in the smells of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. Skirting the market are shops where you can pick up CDs of both traditional and modern Malay "keroncong" music for memories of your holiday in Singapore.

Pop into the modern Joo Chiat Complex and you'll be amazed at the dazzling array of textiles, clothes and jewellery shops which greet you.
