Desker Road is one of the oldest red-light districts in Singapore. It is just walking distance (500m) to Petain Road. Activity over here has been dying down over the years. These days, it’s busiest on Sundays where it is a favourite haunt for thousands of Singapore’s Indian and Bangladeshi construction workers as it is situated within Little India. This place is most active during the night.
This area used to be a stronghold for illegal transsexuals to do their business.
Located near Mustafa Centre, the brothel is situated in the alley between 2 rows of shophouses which is flanged by Desker Road and Rowell Road.
Working girls & Prices
Walking along the alley behind Desker and Rowell Road, within the open backdoors of the shop houses, you will find bored ladies on plastic chairs watching TV and flipping through magazines. Most of these ladies are in their late thirties to fifties. There are some transvetites as well and there is a mixture of Chinese, Malays and Indians. The ladies in these brothel houses are licensed and opening hours is from noon to about 20.00hrs. Prices start from $20 to $40. Once a customer agrees with the price, the lady will guide the customer to a unhygienic, small cramped room for the action. Late into the night when the shophouses are closed, illegal transsexual streekwalkers start to parade along the two blocks facing the roads of Desker and Rowell. Towards the end of the night, some might flash their plastics. Prices for these illegal streetwalkers range from $20 - $100, depending on the type of services and whether it is an outcall service.
