Finding Luxury in Kampong Glam

Traveling when your currency has little strength compared to the neighboring countries means decent accommodation becomes very expensive for you. When traveling solo, booking a hostel is budget friendly and also you get to meet stay with other people.

I found this hostel called Five Stones Hostel in Kampong Glam Singapore. It's located in Beach Rd and on Kampong Glam neighborhood. In Singapore, there are several neighborhoods with a certain ethnicity takes the character. Kampong Glam has this mix of Malay and Middle-eastern culture vibe, a Muslim neighborhood. Along the streets, you can find restaurants mainly sells Turkish and Middle-Eastern food, with very chill setting--tables on the streets, live music playing in the background.

Staying in a shared room, having shared bathroom in a hostel may not look exactly like a luxury, but this one for me definitely was. The reason being was the iconic Sultan Mosque. It is only 5 minutes walk from the hostel. It was nice to have it as a place to start the morning and come home to after a day of exploring 🙂
