Fodor's Review

This market is the largest Victorian cast-iron structure left in Southeast Asia. Already a thriving fish market in 1822, it was redesigned as an octagon by George Coleman in 1834 and redesigned, as we see it today, in 1894. It has been transformed into a planned food court, with hawker stalls that are are busy during the day with office workers. After 7 pm Boon Tat Street is closed to traffic, and the mood turns festive: hawkers wheel out their satay carts and bands often

perform inside.
