The past bazaars were more happening....
Overall Score 
 
3.5
The Hari Raya Bazaar is a must-go event, if not for the shopping, go there for the experience. The bazaar usually opens by the first day of the fasting month and it goes on till the eve of Hari Raya Puasa. IMHO, best time to go is during the mid month onwards and after sundown.

There's plenty of food, plenty of merchandise. There are plenty of traditional dresses (both male and female) for you to choose from. The atmosphere has always been festive though a well-performing economy seems to drive the festive atmosphere even higher.

Having said that, I remember the bazaars during the years when our economy was booming. It was heady to say the least. Toxicating even. Back then, when the old Geylang Serai was in existence, I'd dare say the atmosphere was the best and the nostalgic amongst us would agree, I'd dare say.
