DISTRICT 14 - GEYLANG

Though it holds an infamous reputation as Singapore's red-light district, Geylang is much more than its shady background. Yes it's true that the district has plenty of dubious karaoke lounges, bars and brothels to boot, but the colourful neighbourhood is also home acclaimed local food, Singapore's oldest Malay enclaves and authentic charm untouched by urban redevelopment. e skyline that represents the city-state's modernity and wealth in every damn picture of Singapore, the Marina Area is where everything of note happens. From F1 races to fireworks celebrations; from the hottest parties to the coolest bowls of ice kachang, downtown Singapore is the junction where culture, food, shopping and entertainment meets.
