Abandoned: Old Brunei Hostel


Another abandoned place in Singapore. This one is one of the best looking I’ve seen. It’s right smack in the middle of the multi-million dollar homes of Tanglin.

Apparently between the late 50’s and early 80’s the government of Brunei sent many of it’s students overseas to study as it did not have enough schools and teachers. The hostel on Tanglin Hill Rd was built to house these students. It’s been abandoned now since the early 80’s. It’s quite valuable land, I wonder how long it will last.
