What to Expect
Meet your guide at Chinatown Heritage Centre in Singapore to start your night tour of Chinatown and Geylang.

Your guide will take you along Pagoda Street, Food Street, and the Street of the Dead, telling you all about the danger and vice of historic Chinatown. In 1887, the brothels in Chinatown were said to be as many and as close together as the teeth of a comb. Combined with a proliferation of opium and gambling dens, it was old Singapore's 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. Then bus across and venture down the streets and alleys of Geylang, where you still might find a hint of the old Chinatown. Tread with us as we go where many men have gone before!
