Shilin Night Market event in S'pore still very crowded on 2nd day

The queue for the first day of Shilin Night Market in Singapore was insane:

And it seems like the crowd isn't letting up on the second day, either.

Here's a photo of visitors queuing to enter event premises:

Slightly after 5.30pm on Saturday afternoon, another visitor reported that there was "no queue outside", but a long waiting time for the food:

We went from Eunos to Kranji for the #ShilinSingapore Night Market! This pop-up market is taking place at the Singapore Turf Club Carpark B for two weekends only (this one and next) from 3pm-11pm. We were a tad hesitant to go down having seen the intense crowds on social media but decided to take our chances and support @misstamchiak ‘s popiah ice-cream stall! The risk paid off because when we reached around 4pm, the crowds were still quite manageable.. apparently the peak period is from 5pm onwards! You have been warned! Anyway! If you do drop by, check out @chiakliangsg at Stall 113! We had their Durian and Bubble Tea popiah ice-cream and it was YUMS! Perfect for this weather!🍦

Interested in going the Shilin market Singapore during this Long weekend? Just be mentally prepared for the physically torturing Long queues for the famous Taiwan street food! I had: - Devil’s chicken cutlet (4 hrs Q) - grilled oyster mushroom, savoury sweet potato fries, tempura mushrooms (3 hrs Q) - Brown sugar taro sago milk (20 mins Q) Fortunately the chicken is really good, even though I don’t think I would spend such Long time to queue again. And I would hope that they will improve their Q system as time goes.

SHI LIN NIGHT MARKET 🇹🇼🏮 Swipe to see how I felt about the event // If you guys are prepared to squeeze in a crowd, which probably moves at a speed of a snail and queue for food that takes at least 30mins to an hour, you can head over to @shilinsingapore this weekend and the next weekend. But if not, just find better things to do like heading to @jewelchangiairport, which in my opinion is 1000x better than this place after my entire experience I had at Shilin today. I’ll still post up my experience + food guide on my blog tomorrow so do look out for it if you’re planning to head down or see what you’re missing out on (which is actually not much to be honest 😅). That’s all for now~! #SherEatsShilin #ShilinSingapore
