Singapore may resemble Disneyland but once upon a time (circa 1887) it was the ultimate Sin City and for good reason: there were more brothels, opium and gambling dens than you could poke an incense stick at. Take a Friday evening walking tour through the once-notorious red-light district in Chinatown and learn why the area was once known as Bu Ye Tian – the Place of Nightless Days.
Where: Meet at outside Exit A, Chinatown MRT Station (6325 1631). Chinatown MRT. Cost: $15 children; $30 adults.
