Being alone in a buzzing country also have its benefits like exploring places on your own, and that in itself is already an adventure.
I rented a room in Tampines. A modest flat with three rooms in it. A Malaysian family owns the unit and lets the two rooms. I rented the other one with a close window. This is because it is directly facing the buildings walkway. It's a privacy thing. Anyway, Tampines is a hour train ride to the central business district. This station is a residential area so most of the buildings here are apartments and condominiums. Bugis is almost 30-45 minutes train ride from Tampines. Both stations are along the same green line so no need to change trains to go there.
