The Singapore Red Light District

By Sam (from Malaysia)

Surprisingly, the first Singapore red light district in the 19th century was started by the British for the men working away from their families. Today, whilst actual prostitution in Singapore is still legal, walking along the street and soliciting your services is not.

Prostitution is well organised and, in brothels, girls have regular health checks. General safety is high by regional standards and the risk of being ripped off or robbed is low.

The Chinese Malaysian women are the ladies most likely to come into contact with western men, particularly those looking for romance. They increasingly meet via:

Paid sex in Singapore is not limited to girls in professional brothels, you can also find freelance working-girls in the bars around Orchard Towers and take them back to your hotel room.

I’ve had experience with both girls in the brothels and freelancers from Orchard Towers. Some were good, others were downright scary as you’ll read later.

In this article, I’ll describe what to expect in the Singapore red light district in both the brothels and when picking up girls at a bar.

Sex Tourism in Singapore

The Singapore red light district is widespread and you can find brothels in several parts of the city. Everything is more regulated compared to other places in Asia.

Girls of different nationalities from South East Asia and Eastern Europe work in Singapore. Most are from Vietnam, China, Thailand and Indonesia. The Europeans are either Russian or Ukrainian and tend to be very pricey.

You are unlikely to meet many local Singaporean girls in the sex trade because the island is one of the richest places on Earth, education standards are unrivaled, and most local ladies have plenty of other ways to make money.

Despite the lack of local ladies, Singapore has attracted a great deal of immigrants who will happily provide the sexual encounters you're looking for and the place is notorious for being able to satisfy your wildest dreams. I know people who go to certain parts of Geylang for threesomes or to fulfil other more bizarre fetish fantasies.

Singapore is highly developed and has a lot to offer the more affluent gentleman.

Geylang Singapore

Geylang has lots of Lorongs (alleys) branching off the man stretch. You can find regulated brothels between Lorong 2 and 30 which have large red street numbers to identify them. Most of them open from the early afternoon until 5 am.

I’ve visited Geylang several times over the last few years. The brothels look rundown and a bit dodgy from the outside, which does make going inside for the first time a bit intimidating.

Once inside the receptionist will tell you to sit down and she'll offer you a drink; she’ll then ask what you’re looking for in terms of race, type of girl, and what you want to do.

Sometimes a girl is available and waiting, other times you’ll need to wait. You’re not obliged to accept the first girl that they offer. Be firm and they’ll find someone else. Most of the time you won’t have to wait longer than 10 minutes unless you want something particularly unconventional.

The receptionist tells you the price and you pay her, not the girl. It’s so official that you could probably get a receipt for business expenses if you asked!

There are some very sweet girls to be found in Malaysia and it is easy to find them online. Gold-diggers are a rarity and you can expect to have lots of fun on:

A typical scenario starts with the girl locking the door and undressing both herself and you. She will then wash you with soap in the shower before drying and licking your body!

Sex follows, with standard sessions typically last up to 45 minutes. You’re not expected to tip the girl as she gets paid by the brothel. However, if you want the same girl again then give her a generous tip. Trust me, the second time will be much, much better!

Visiting Geylang has advantages and disadvantages. The main benefit is that most services are regulated, thereby ensuring safety and cleanliness.

You pay a fixed price, don’t need to worry about theft, and the girls have health checks but, at the same time, it’s a business and you have less flexibility, so don’t expect to share a few drinks and a conversation beforehand.

A tip from experience, go as early as you can. Rooms are cleaned in the morning and the later it gets, the dirtier and more unhygienic the rooms get.

Orchard Towers Singapore

Orchard towers is another infamous part of the Singapore red light district. The 4 floors of whores as it is commonly referred to is the most well-known naughty area in the city.

There are lots of bars there which are full of freelance working girls from all across Asia and Eastern Europe. You can also find erotic massage parlours and advertisements for escorts.

You don’t need to worry too much about theft at the regulated places in Geylang. However, you do need to be careful with the ones you meet in Orchard Towers.

The bars aren’t strip clubs or a-go-go bars. They’re just bars where ladies of the night – mainly Thai, Filipina, and Vietnamese, go to ply their trade. You can find higher-end Ukrainians on the fourth floor.

In my experience, the girls are more attractive but more costly than the girls in Geylang. They always come up to you and ask you to buy them a drink before negotiating a price and heading back to your hotel room.

Most hotels allow you to take a girl back to your room. In fact, I’ve heard rumours of wealthy businessmen taking girls from Orchard Towers back to the Shangri-La, but that’s a story for another day. I stay in budget accommodation and have never had any problems. Short-time hotels are available too, and the girl will know where to find the nearest one.

A quick point about picking up a freelancer in the Singapore red light district; there are a lot of ladyboys hanging around and some may be difficult to spot in the dim lights, so be aware of this if they’re not your thing.

Singapore Red Light District - other places

A lot of tourists don’t know that the Singapore red light district extends further than Geylang and Orchard Towers. There are other naughty options to be found in Little India and Chinatown, and they tend to cater more for locals at slightly cheaper prices.

In Little India, the red light district runs along Desker Road and Petain Road, both of these are a short walk from each other.

Desker is one of the oldest in Singapore but the girls I’ve seen there weren’t as attractive and it feels more sleazy and unhygienic. Go to Petain Road if you’re just looking for cheap satisfaction. I’ve found that this is one of the cheapest options around town.

Keong Saik Road is in Chinatown. This was most active in the 1960s and only a few brothels remain. Again, it’s cheap compared to Geylang.

Points to Remember

  • Geylang is more controlled and you’re almost certain to fulfill any desire you want but the girls may not be top-notch, and the rooms can get dirty later on.
  • For a more attractive girl that you may want to take back to your room, go to Orchard Towers. You can also find cheaper places in Little India and Chinatown.
  • The Singapore red light district satisfies most desires but you should be prepared to pay more than you would elsewhere in South East Asia.
  • Singapore is highly developed and people have lots of cash to spend, which means that prices are pushed higher...
