Urban Adventures in Geylang


Geylang is a neighborhood located in the east of Singapore. To be exact, it is located to the east of the Singapore River. The nearest MRT station to Geylang is the Aljunied MRT station. Geylang is famous for its great range of tasty food and this includes durian as one of the top in the list.

There are a lot of stalls selling durian in Geylang. It is not that hard to find a stall selling durian if you want to have some durian simply because those stalls are almost everywhere in Geylang. If you are lucky enough, you will come across a durian stall that has a talking parrot. It is very smart and fun to play with.

Geylang is a neighborhood that has a lot of human activities during the day and night. There are streetwalkers everywhere. Cars traveling endlessly on the road. Old people picking up paper boards on the road to make a living by selling the paper boards.

Please note that there isn’t much lighting in Geylang. Thus, do bring a camera with a flash or load the camera with high ISO film in order to capture the nighttime street shoots.
