Thai Town in Singapore?

Post by kc_phil » Thu, 04 Jan 2007 11:50 am

Hi Gang.

I just moved here and i am wondering if there is a Thai part of town with a market/bookstore/gang of restaurants? Something similar to THAI TOWN in LA or the area around old Kai Tak airport in Hong Kong.

Similarly i am wondering if there a Thai social/community group or anything of that nature. My girlfriend is Thai and i am trying to find some outlets for her.

Anytips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! :D

Golden Mile Complex? Where all the Thai goods can be found.

Golden Mile Complex is the 'little Thailand' and weekend is usually all the Thai gather for socialising. At times, some of them had abit too much of 'Ma Tai' and create some disturbance. So be a little bit more cautions, me and wife encountered such problematic drunk there just two day ago, just ignore and try not to pick up a fight.

Yeah Golden Mile is the place you want but as other posters declare it can be a bit lairy on a weekend especially Sunday.

Many Taxi drivers will not pick up there or Thai men in the vicinity - ask them ;-)

I took the Mrs her first Sunday in Singapore and it was funny to see it - just like a drunken wedding or party upcountry in the village. I have been to the clubs and disco's on a Saturday which were better - maybe too expensive for most Thai workers at 12 sing for a Heineken?

Among other reasons the Mrs is not coming back to Singapore and staying in Thailand - lonlieness and missing friends and family were a contributing factor but not the only one.

She contributed this herself I suppose by not making an effort but she would say she did not want Thai friends but Singaporean then never made any.

There are plenty of Thai's about and they do range from the Four Floors girls to factory workers to expat wives/gf's - just take it easy and meet who you want to :) :) :)

SE,

It's on Beach Road at the other end from City Hall. Usually can see lots of tour buses there. Golden Mile Shopping Centre is on the Beach side of the road. (Right side if coming from city hall.
