Singapore is made up of a beautiful mix of people from different cultures and backgrounds. This means that we are not defined by just one stereotype. Hence having many places of interest that attract travelers – and even locals – to visit.
Just one area out of the plethora, is along the East West Line – from Eunos all the way to Bugis. Especially now that Ramadhan is approaching, the place is only getting much more colourful than on normal days.
This is due to the abundance of bazaars that will be set up on 2 major areas – Kampong Glam and Geylang Serai. During this period, smaller cafés and F&B business owners use this advantage to rent a stall to boost or promote themselves.
Therefore the night markets are often packed with people scavenging for “hipster” food and beverages – hipster as in out of the norm or peculiar.
Apart from the usual search for traditional clothing for the celebration of Eid, people also look for home furnishings such as carpets and fabrics for curtains. Arab Street is famous for these household items.
Just a 5 minute walk away is the Malay Heritage Centre, a cultural centre and museum in Singapore that showcases the culture, heritage and history of Malay Singaporeans – yet another tourist attraction.
Go all the way down Victoria Street / Kallang Road and you’ll end up at the other hype area this peak period – Geylang Road, where both sides of the road are covered by tents for the crazy packed bazaars.
Not only is this place frequent by the Malay / Muslim community but Chinese, Indians, Eurasians – and anybody at all – are also seen queuing up for the latest Thai Milk Tea and Fried Giant Squids.
The excitement is so hype that even our clients want to be seen. So much so that our billboards located at Tristar Complex are all fully booked till the end of the year.
However, we do have another prime site that can catch the crowds – Hotel Boss.
As a place of temporary residence for tourists itself, it is strategically located at the cross junction of Jalan Sultan and Victoria Street, leading to Kallang Road which then leads to Geylang Road. It perfectly catches the eyeballs of travelers going to and from one huge bazaar to another.
Within the vicinity of mosques and places of halal eateries, it certainly is a prominent placement to target the massive crowds. As mentioned earlier, peak period is coming!
