Hmmm ... I´m one of those people who doesn´t only look at the down town of a city but also at the rest, at the residential buidlings, at the suburb, which actually consist in Singapore almost only of slums .....

So the down town gets 10 from me and the whole city at all maybe 5.

erm... actually there aren't any slums in singapore... i live in a 1600sq ft apartment at the furthest end of singapore on the 4th storey and it cost about USD290,000 in a property slump = bargain price.. this apartment is in a major residential area... at this price it can't be a villa but neither would i call it a slum...

in the second pic with the blue building and green buildings under construction... those apartments there go to the millions.. and even higher the nearer they get to the city centre...

i know many of the buildings look like shit on the outside but they are rather valuable and some can be done up really nicely... juz think of hongkong with bigger apartments at slightly lower prices ...

hope this corrects ur image of singapore wif slums

THERE ARE NO SLUMS IN S'PORE!!!

Hi Warszawiak...

I was totally puzzled by your comments. Why do u say that there are slums in S'pore? Have u even visited this beautiful garden city? Here is S'pore, we have ABSOLUTELY NO SLUMS!!! I can confidently say that S'pore is the ONLY COUNTRY IN ASIA, and perhaps the world that had acheive this. We may not have the most spectacular skyline(2nd to hk), but as a whole country, nothing compares to s'pore.

We have the world's best goverment housing scheme, that had been awarded the United Nations Human Habitat Award more than a decade ago. It only gets more and more beautiful outside the downtown area. Every single inch of the country is well-maintained, and every single apartment block is repainted or upgraded every 5 years or so. All the streets are lines with trees and bushes and there is at least a playground or park for every 5 min walk! The governmnet spends billions every year just to upkeep the neat and tidy image.

We have developed to a stage where we are not talking about clearing slums anymore. All the slums had been developed into beautiful housing estates more than 15 years ago. We are now into bringing the standard of living to a height never seen before.

Trust me, thats what S'pore is! Why do u think thousands of people are queing up to migrate here from all over the world? If u say the town area deserves 10, then the whole country deserves 100! U think the world calls S'pore a "clean and tidy city" and a "garden city" for nothing?

I am so sorry if i had over reacted, but its just too disturbing to hear people say that there are slums here. This is the first time i had heard somebody say this. Come visit S'pore and look at the beautiful houses we all stay in, the countless parks we lay in and the gleaming offices we work in! Hey guys, I think its time to post pics from outside the town area!

I'm sorry , but I'm alittle disturbed by the thought of Singapore having slums, it's like saying the Vatican has beggars.

In fact, I'm more proud of Singapore's 'suburbs' than the city, do you know that the city is "dirtier" and "uglyer" than the suburbs?

It is a known fact that Singapore is the only city in the world apart from Rio De Janerio, that has a rainforest within city limits, so any extra land is filled with primary rainforest.

No slums at all, the 'poor' people live in these:

This is considered as a poor standared of living which the younger generation can't tolerate:

I'm sorry if I'm a little harsh here, but this statement must be made very clearley to anyone who thinks that Singapore has slums.
This is about 1/4 of Singapore:

Housing estates:


The short houses are not slums, but expensive landed property and shophouses the highrises are cheaper.

Well said rEXxx and great pictures Cliff!!

Go easy on warszawiak. He probably has not been to Singapore and might be assuming just because its in Asia, there have to be slums. You lot have certainly set that record straight!
Singapore has often been described as a 'first world oasis'

Singapore is nice. A mixture of east and west, and you can see that in the archictecture.

9/10
