When Singaporeans aren't travelling, they are always looking for ways to escape from their everyday life.
Sadly, unlike neighbouring countries in Southeast Asia, Singapore isn't big enough to take road trips.
So the closest experience to taking a vacation is checking ourselves into a hotel to tune out the world for some self-care during the short weekend staycation.
The year is coming to an end, and if you're feeling generous and have a little more money to splurge on yourself, here are some of the most expensive hotels in Singapore, according to a survey done by Luxury Hotels.
The survey compares the most affordable double room across Singapore during September 2019, known to be a peak period where hotels tend to be the priciest.
The price tag may be hefty, but at least you can truly say you've experienced the life of a Crazy Rich Asian; even if it's only for a night.
