Nestled in the neighbourhood of Balestier is Whampoa, an old estate filled with charming shops. These range from heartland bakeries, TCM halls, foot massage parlours to a 24-hour FairPrice outlet and several kopitiams. At the heart of the Whampoa estate is the Whampoa Drive Food Centre and Wet Market.
There, you’ll find a wet market (Blk 92) for groceries and two hawker centres. And out of these two food centres, the one at blk 91 is lovingly known as the morning market as it opens at 5 am and closes by 2pm, while the other, Blk 90, is known as the night market, where hawkers open for lunch, dinner and supper.
