Home to famous kueh stalls and the much-loved Ramadhan bazaar, Geylang Serai precinct has many hidden gems that are just waiting to be (re)discovered. Through the eyes of five exciting playwrights, tour the district to a curated playlist of original radio plays inspired by the lives and rich mercantile histories of its residents.
Highlights include visiting the oldest bookstore in Singapore and learning the history behind a popiah recipe passed down through three generations, amongst other familiar – if often overlooked – stores.
Take on the journey at your own time and pace. Whether you’re spending time enjoying chee kong or browsing the variety of offerings available while enjoying the plays,
Geylang Serai Trails promises an exciting afternoon in one of Singapore’s most iconic neighbourhoods.
Download the digital map here. The trail will be available from 12 December onwards.
