Lau Pa Sat

Located in Singapore‘s financial district, Lau Pa Sat is not just a historic market but a landmark that dates back to the 19th century. Today, it thrives as a vibrant culinary destination where locals and tourists alike come together to enjoy both Singaporean and international flavors.


Lau Pa Sat is one of the most popular food markets in the country, or what locals refer to as a ‘hawker center’, (open-air complexes with many stalls that sell a wide variety of affordably priced food), thanks to its wide variety of food and its unique Victorian design. You can find everything from traditional food like satay and laksa to global dishes like sushi and kebabs, all prepared fresh at the stalls. An easy 5-minute walk from the Raffles Place MRT Station.
