Bugis Village

Bugis Village, SingaporeBugis Village, Singapore (10 July, 2011)

Bugis Village (GPS: 1.30041, 103.85483) is a row of 34 restored shophouses bordered by Rochor Road and Victoria Street in Singapore. Until 1991, it was a grim row that once housed the red-light district of Singapore. Transvestites are said to often bring their "guests" home to their premises in the walk-up apartments above the shophouses.

The rebranding of Bugis Street saw the end of the flesh trade of the area. Along came a sprucing up of Bugis Village, which is reincarnated as shops, with some budget hotels on the upper floors.
