Description

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, Chinatown's brothels were as many and as close together as the teeth of a comb. Together with 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. Then ride a bus across to venture with us down the streets and alleys of Geylang where entertainment, in its rawest form, is still practiced today. Tread with us as we go where many men have gone before!
