A staycation in Singapore can feel like a real holiday.

With the outbreak of Covid-19, many Singaporeans have had to cancel plans for their favourite pastime — travelling. We know, it sucks. Even us at TTI (The Travel Internally?) are staying put in Singapore because health comes first.

But there’s no need to burn out and cancel your leave. Just do a staycation in Singapore!

There are many awesome hotels in Singapore which are well-worth that staycay money.
You can go glamping by the beach, stargaze in a loft, or drink and feast to your heart’s content before retiring to a luxe hotel room. Plus, no harm helping the local economy tide through tough times. Even Lee Hsien Loong approves. #nationalduties

So here are 11 Singapore hotels which prove you don’t need to be overseas to feel like you’re on holiday:

1) Quincy Hotel — free buffet, all-day bites, cocktails, and mini-bar
