With the crazy crowd at the newly opened Jewel Changi Airport, you’d think Singaporeans would be all queued out. Yet, throngs of people also made their way to Shilin Singapore, the local version of Taiwan’s famous Shilin Night Market, last week, which is also happening this weekend on April 26 to 28 (Fri to Sun), at The Grounds@Kranji.

Organised by Invade, the folks behind the Bangkok-inspired pop-up container bazaar ArtBox, the day-to-night market features “over 300 Taiwanese and local” street food, drinks, artisanal products, games and performances. And in case you missed the many crowd-filled social media snaps and news coverage on the event, Shilin Singapore was packed. Crazy packed. Queues were reportedly everywhere, even to get into the market itself.  

Because you can’t trust everything you see on the Internet, we decided to head down on Day 3 (21 April) to check it out for ourselves and find out if the crowd was truly as massive as some claimed. How foolhardy we were.
