Lau Pa Sat Festival Market

Top 10 Hawker Centers in Singapore-Trip Advise

This premium hawker center in Singapore's business district has over 5,500 square meters of interior space, enough to seat over 2,000 diners feasting on the fare sold by the Market's 200-plus food stalls. Formerly housing a wet market, the intricate cast-iron structure dates back to 1894, having been built by the British using components imported from Scotland. The market was converted into a hawker center in 1973.


After dark, Boon Tat Street beside Lau Pa Sat transforms into an al fresco satay street, with about dozen outdoor stalls grilling satay, chicken wing, and barbecued seafood for a rapt crowd seated on plastic chairs set out on the street.
