You need a respite from working hard at work/ school all year round- you can’t even remember the last time you took a break. On the other hand, you wouldn’t want to break the bank while giving yourself a well-deserved rest.
Well, who says you have to spend on extraorbitant airfares to another country to calm your frazzled nerves? Singapore might be a small island, but there is no lack of activities for you to recharge.
For one, try having a staycation locally – be at home, away from home. Choose a quiet place if you must, away from the city’s hustle and bustle.
Free yourself of troubles and thoroughly relax – which shouldn’t be too tall an order, not with staycations with unique concepts. Not only can you take the chance to lounge, you can get some Instagram-worthy pictures!
Here are 8 hotel staycation ideas so cool, your pictures are bound to chalk up countless likes on Instagram!
