Pasar malams, also known as night markets, are what make Singapore so special and bring liveliness to our nightlife.

While it is uncommon to see pasar malams all the time, it means that you should seize the opportunity to visit one when there is a chance.

Here’s the chance to visit Singapore’s “biggest” pasar malam from December till early 2023, before Chinese New Year.

Woodlands MRT Station Supposedly Having the ‘Largest Pasar Malam’ That’ll Reopen Before CNY

The next bazaar will be held at Woodlands from 21 December 2022 to 21 January 2023. It is also deemed as Singapore’s largest bazaar (according to its organiser).

Just so you know, CNY 2023 is on 22 January 2023, so this is the pasar malam for CNY if you can’t head to Chinatown.

Most other pasar malams are gone within a week or so, but the Woodlands pasar malam gives you ample time to visit. If you want to avoid the crowd, you can choose to drop by when it is not so crowded, such as the weekdays.

If you want to enjoy lots of delicious light bites and sweet treats before eating lohei and hotpot for the next few weeks of Chinese New Year, this is the chance.

Located just right next to the MRT station, it is very convenient, even for those who stay all the way at Pasir Ris. 

Food that You Must Try 

When it comes to pasar malam, there are several “traditional” foods that people normally would buy.

This includes tapioca cakes, sweet corn, kueh tutu, tea leaf eggs, and vadai. These foods bring back nostalgia and it is often the ones we eat while growing up. There is nothing that can possibly go wrong with these food.

We also have foods that are highly raved about by everyone on social media. For example, the iconic sweet potato balls, cheese beef cubes, and the ramly burger.

Expect to see snaking queues when you see these stalls at the pasar malam—but no doubt, every minute of queueing is worth it.

Another must-try food is the rosti—which is essentially fried potato strips, but as simple as it looks, it is heavenly.

Surprisingly, it costs from just S$6 at the pasar malam, which is more affordable compared to other places.

Lots of Space to Sit

Do not worry about not having anywhere to sit because the largest pasar malam comes with abundant seats for you.

What is even better is that everywhere is sheltered so you do not have to worry about you or your food being soaked.
