    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When travelling around the Geylang area, you have to be careful as there are lots of foreign workers staying here, as well as prostitutes since this is one of the red light districts in Singapore (especially the area around Geylang Lorong 6, Lorong 8 and Lorong 10). If you are female, do not travel here alone and try to travel as a group, best with some male friends.
