    Matchbox is a totally awesome place to stay in Singapore, if you're on a budget! It's right smack in a great lively area. Plenty to see while walking around. This was also my first time staying in a pod/capsule hotel and I absolutely loved it!...More

    You can't beat this hostel for the price and the location. The plywood pods provide a respite of privacy and are ample for the modest in size. Bigger people might feel cramped here. That said, the facility itself seems to have been neglected. Lightbulbs were...More

    Chinatown
    Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
    sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
    sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
    blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
    Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
    almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
    continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
    the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
