What You Can Expect
The lantern beckoned him. The new ah ku was pretty, fresh from Canton. High on opium, he made his way unsteadily towards the gas-lit brothel. In 1887, the brothels in Chinatown were as many and as close together as the teeth of a comb. Combine that with the proliferation of opium and gambling dens, it was sin city. It is no accident that Chinatown was also known as 'Bu Ye Tian' - The Place of Nightless Days. Discover vice and tragedy in the shadows of Chinatown by night.

Gives a totally different perspective of Singapore's night life, really enjoyed it.
We met Wina in Pagoda Street Mall next to the escalator from Chinatown MRT station. There were 15 people in our group on 16/08/2013. I had done this tour 2 years ago, expected it to be the same, but Food Street - Smith Street - was closed and only 2 red light establishment left in Chinatown so we walked through to Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Club Street, where we boarded a bus and transferred to Gayling District where most of the red light establishments now reside. We stopped at a restaurant in Gayling to try Turtle Soup(from farmed turtles meat) and Crocodile Stew. Walking in Gayling is not something I would do on my own, glad we were on a tour, felt area is very rough. Dropped back at the Chinatown Tourist Centre at 9-15pm, make your own way back to your lodgings ore where ever you want to go. Very informative tour with lots of history and photo's of how life was when Chinatown was young. Highly recommend this and all the Original Singapore Walks tours. Much cheaper if booked with Viator than paying at start of tour direct to tour guide.
