What You Can Expect

Singapore at Night: Cultural and Historical Tour of Chinatown

Singapore's Chinatown Night Walking Tour

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.

Join your guide, an expert in Singapore's rich heritage and colorful history. Venture into the fringes where entertainment, in its rawest form, is still practiced today. Highlights of your night tour include Food Street, Club Street, Singapore's 'East End,' and discovering numerous back alleys of the Red Light District.
