Geylang Guided Walk, August 27
27 August @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us for this very interesting guided tour of Geylang – the only legalised red light district in Singapore. From the food to the vice, we’ve seen and heard all about Geylang; but have you ever walked through it all?
Faced with issues like overcrowding from the influx of foreign workers and the social stigma of prostitution long before the rest of Singapore read it in the news, Geylang has certainly had its share of adventures over the years. Hear about these – and their resulting social and environmental impacts – first hand on this tour.
This is a three-hour walk, so please eat something beforehand; and do wear comfortable clothes and shoes too. During the walk, we will need to designate the participants into groups of up to 5 persons as we move from point to point.
Date: 27 August
Meeting place: TBC (we will email everyone about the meeting place closer to the date)
Looking forward to seeing you. Slots are limited, so you have to be quick to register!

“The tour was great and we certainly learnt, and saw, a lot more about Singapore than what I thought I knew. I’ve also decided to be more aware of my surroundings when walking at night.“- Peter Brock
