The problem is, choosing one can be tricky as there are so many sites offering the same hotels for different prices.
Advertised prices are also often very different from what you end up paying, since these websites often add all sorts of hidden costs to your booking.
Step in, ChangiHotels. This new platform promises a clear pricing mechanism as well as competitive pricing, so that you won’t feel cheated when you actually see the final cost of your booking.
The website also boasts rooms in over 5,000 destinations across 70,000 properties, which means you’ll be spoilt for choice in a good way.
Here are our top picks for an unforgettable getaway that’ll make even your high-SES friends envious.
2D1N Ipoh, Malaysia
Maybe there’s a public holiday coming up and you’re thinking about a short getaway. Why not go with a recommendation by The New York Times? We’re talking about Ipoh, Malaysia.
M Boutique Hotel Ipoh is located a mere 2km from the city centre. This means less time traveling and more time discovering all that delicious food in the city.
Address: No. 2, Hala Datuk 5, 31650
3D2N Bangkok, Thailand
If you’ve used up most of your annual leave early in the year, opt for a weekend trip to a nearby city. And there’s none better than Bangkok, which serves up a unique blend of cafes, night spots and shopping streets.
Sitting in the heart of the Thonghlor district, this property is within walking distance of Jim Thompson House and Central World mall. Nestled in lush greenery, the hotel is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok city life. And its central location means that the major attractions are just a short taxi ride away.
Address: Sukhumvit 55 (Thonglor) Sukhumvit Rd, Klongton Nua, 113, 10110
5D4N Kathmandu, Nepal
The more adventurous traveller might want to end the year with a journey less travelled. Why not explore Kathmandu, often dubbed the Gateway to the Himalayas?
Five days in the Nepalese capital are a great introduction to its charming culture. For a comfortable stay, opt for the luxurious Hyatt Regency. A UNESCO World Heritage Site sits on its doorstep and inside, you’ll be treated to the finest Nepalese hospitality as well as sprawling gardens fit for royalty.
Address: Po Box 9609, Taragaon, Boudha, 0, 0
8D7N Melbourne, Australia
Craving a luxurious experience? Look no further than The Hotel Windsor, in the heart of Melbourne’s civic district. Guests can reach cultural and shopping sites easily, among them Federation Square and the National Gallery of Victoria. This 100-year-old hotel is a bit like the Raffles Hotel Down Under, so you know you can expect nothing short of the best.
We love the hotel’s Afternoon Tea, renowned in Melbourne for its elegance and mouthwatering spread. Served in the One Eleven lounge, a typical spread includes ribbon sandwiches, savoury pastries, French patisserie, and freshly baked scones with housemade Windsor jam and double cream. Hotel guests get priority for the highly sought after tea.
Address: 111 Spring Street, 111, 3000
10D9N Seoul, Korea
Feeling dulled by the humdrum of work? Maybe it’s time to find release in the vibrant streets of Gangnam, Seoul. Nestled right in the middle of Gangnam, you need only step out of the lobby to find yourself amid the life and roar of the night. And if the lights and noise prove too much for you, or if you’re just tired from a long day, there’s always the rooftop garden to unwind at.
Address: Teheran-Ro 25 Gil, Gangnam-Gu, Seoul, 10
