    SLS made it to #5 on the list.

    great place for tourists to get chopped like carrots.

    Oh puh-leezze... she's over dramatizing.

    First, not everyone in the world is brainwashed at the robot factory to think joyful politically correct thoughts: enjoy the culture, the variety of food, the heritage, blah blah blah...

    Poverty Porn?? Has she even compared the price of our homegrown "leggy streetwalkers" versus that in the region?

    It's the real world, baby. Next time that author goes to Amsterdam, make sure she sticks to the 7 day tour on how the Wooden Clog Was Born, and dutch poetry.

    What a joke.

    In ancient times when a town has an ogre problem, they have to do unpleasant things like choose the fairest maiden for sacrifice.

    We're far more civilized then that, we feed tourists to our SLS Ogres at Floors 1~3

    i like how she calls them "hookers".

    perhaps someone should point it out to Tessa Wong that it's almost like calling the Japanese "Japs" to their faces.

    and honestly it's really much ado about nothing..her commentary is longer than the article itself!

    slow news day, perhaps?

    I'm curious.

    What's debasing about the term 'hooker'?

    Well, Geylang is real, wild and non-sterile..... The same cannot be said of many other places now, Chinatown for one.

    geylang is the new Singapore.
    the energy there is admirable, and full of immigrants bustling about, starting up new businesses along the way.

    U're right. I went pass one of the single digit lorong there many months ago on a Sunday morning & saw some very interesting old apartments which I thought would be nice to shoot but think better don't anyhow bring a camera there

    They need to keep you stupid so that you will not ask intelligent questions.

    Salacious or not, that place has more vibrancy and real street life than many planned districts.
