Can't Travel Yet, Go for a Staycay at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering!

It is uncertain when leisure travel will be resumed. Many of us have cancelled our overseas travelling holiday plans for this year.

Before the pandemic, I would travel at least 2-3 time a year. Why I love to travel? Beside taking a break from my work, it is the ultimate adventure which exposes me to new types of people, different ways of living, and opens up my mind.

While we are all waiting for leisure travel to resume, a staycation in Singapore is the closest thing we have to a quick getaway - minus away the hassle of dealing with an unfamiliar environment, currency or transport system.

A staycation is perfect for couples who live separately with their respective families, bffs who usually travel together, or families with kids who don't have a swimming pool near their homes and wish to enjoy one at a hotel. 


Having a staycation is so easy! You need not worry about booking of air tickets, last-minute packing, currency exchange, the mad airport dash, planning of leave, complex itinerary planning and so on.


It is definitely a great and cost-effective getaway! Much more affordable as compared to travelling overseas which there are more expenses like your Airplane tickets, accommodation, transportation, food & itinerary expenses.

Even by just having a weekend staycation, you get to feel as if you’re transported to an entirely different time and place. 

If you have a loved one who is feeling down because of a cancelled trip, or someone you simply want to cheer up, a staycation always makes for a good gift!
