Founded by backpackers and soultrippers, The Mahjong is the result of years of pursuing a dream to establish a comfortable boutique hostel that offers cultural immersion in addition to a social exchange for travelers to meet and swap stories.
The Mahjong takes its name from a traditional game that dates back to late Qing dynasty when locals gathered together over a table of 144 game pieces to play and while away the days. Today, the game has evolved into a national pastime and is played everywhere – at home, in the park, even dedicated mahjong parlours around the city. There are various legends on how the game got its name – one being the Mahjong sparrow it was named after, for its petite yet agile body that resembled the game pieces.
“Mahjong is small but has everything it needs”
