What You Can Expect

Singapore at Night: Cultural and Historical Tour of Chinatown

Singapore's Chinatown Night Walking Tour

Join your guide, an expert in Singapore's heritage and colorful history, at the Chinatown MRT Station on Pagoda Street. During an informative 2.5-hour tour, you’ll discover age-old vices — and learn about ‘entertainment’ still practiced today on the fringes — as you explore the shadow-side of Chinatown by night.

Glimpse side streets on a walk through Chinatown, where a proliferation of brothels and opium dens crowded the streets by the end of the 19th century. Then take a coach to Geylang, Singapore’s still-thriving red light district, and get a behind-the-scenes peek at its numerous back alleys during a walking tour of the area.

Other highlights include the pedestrian-friendly Food Street with its mesmerizing array of street food stalls, and a stroll down Club Street, where you can soak up the buzzing nightlife of one of Singapore's trendiest clubbing areas.
