infamous red light district, complete with opium dens and
whatnot, Chinatown underwent a government planned gentrification
program in the 1970s and is now one of Singapore's most fashionable
areas. The ubique tess 2 and 3 storey shophouses that once
housed many a samll warehouse and trading company have been
turned into delightfully romantic boutique hotels, chic designer
shops and trendy restaurants.
