Set against soaring skyscrapers and all that glitters in Singapore, this is a tour through its contrasting underbelly. Google ‘Geylang’ and you will find stereotypical adjectives giving clues to its reputation – from multiple mentions of crime to listicles of delicious late-night offerings.

With the help of different stakeholders on the ground, Geylang Adventures presents a multi-disciplinary interpretation of the neighbourhood and the changes over the years. From the contrasts of vice and exploitation to the practices within religious institutions, be captivated by the shared narratives that emerge. The journey is hosted by residents ‘Ah Boy’ and ‘Ah Girl’ and showcases perspectives of the secret lives of five unique people in Geylang.
