What is Orchard Towers like as an office tower? Is it a sleazy area?

Yes. Seriously. It's not known as "the four floors of whores" for nothing, and to top it off quite a few of the whores in question are streetwalking ladyboys :shock:

If you go in there in the daytime it is deader than cordroy. Just a bunch of shops (tailors, camera shops, opticians and the like) and closed bars and tatoo parlours. If you worked in an office there, I don't think it would be sleezy. I've only walked past there at night (not been in) and it seems alot more happenin' (to be polite!), but unless you worked late into the evening, I don't think you'd see it.

ive been there once...

it was past 1am, together with some friends, out of curiousity, how it looks like and what going on in there...

it was a shocking reactions, cuz ive never thought that there are lots of ladyboys in there.

u wont believe this but its true, there were bunch of ladyboys waiting for caucasians and teasing them, like touching and flirting.... showing their.... (v.) its kinda traumatic cuz i didnt have any idea how would this ladyboys flirt guys... but theyre really good... in fairness, theyre all sexy....

but nways, its harmless.

just wanna share my experienced. thats all!

Ooops! Had to read that a couple of times. Looked like, "Have I been a transsexual Bangkok too long?" :roll:
