Or stay at hippy hostel? less than 100 bucks a night heh......

Hipstercity which operates out of a four storey shop house strategically sited on the fringes of Clarke Quay's bustling nightlife district has no doubt rewritten the playbook of plain vanilla hostel accommodation with unabashed inventiveness. From conceptualization to realization a steadfast conviction to define the communal lodging experience on its own terms held sway, hence living spaces swirling in swanky chic yet subsisting on the reflective-with meticulous, endearing staff to match.

Hotel booking sites were misleading users. They've agreed to change

Searching for a hotel room online might soon get a little more transparent, at least for UK consumers.
Major travel websites including Trivago (TRVG), Expedia (EXPE), Agoda and Booking.com have agreed to change the way they do business after a UK investigation found some of them were deceiving users about hotel room prices and search results.

The UK Competition and Markets Authority on Wednesday announced the results of its probe, which focused on issues such as pressure selling, misleading discount claims and hidden charges.

The regulator said that some buyers were warned that other users were looking at the same hotel, giving them a "false impression" of a room's popularity. In other cases, the full cost of the room was not displayed.

While not all of the platforms engaged in each of the unfair practices, they have now agreed to follow a common set of guidelines.

The companies have pledged to display all charges including taxes and refrain from pressure selling. They will be clearer about discounts and only promote deals that are really available at that time.

Capella Sentosa charged 1k per night !?!
I would prefer staying at home
I would too. If the staycation is so expensive, I would just save the money for an overseas holiday.

Book flights on Sunday, hotels on Friday to save money: Report

Flights and accommodation in the Asia-Pacific may cost less if booked on certain days, according to a 2019 pricing outlook report by travel companies Expedia Group and Airline Reporting Corporation (ARC).

The report derived average air ticket prices for flight-booking days and departure days from data on over 295 million passenger trips from October 2017 to September 2018. Accommodation data was taken from 19 booking sites with over 895,000 properties worldwide.

The data was based on standard average prices, excluding prices after discounts or promotions.

The Changi Village Hotel offers a pretty good deal too. In the day time, you can take a boat ride over to Pualu Ubin.

Good suggestion.

I see offer of $112 a night for a superior twin room over the March school holiday weekend (16/3 to 17/3) :shock: Looks like a steal!
