The Singaporean’s Escape Plan – Top 10 Best Hotels To Getaway In Singapore

I love to travel. No, that’s incorrect…I love to escape.

From the busy life in the city to the rest of the world, I just can’t get enough of the feeling when I reach the airport and start walking through duty free to gates of my next destination.

Even if I can’t afford to travel overseas, I would still go on a mini holiday in Singapore just to ESCAPE.  Needless to say, I have stayed at a number of hotels in my own country 🙂

But which ones were truly my favourite in terms of ambiance, food, location and overall service? From one Singaporean to another (and you guys all over the world), here are my top picks for hotels in Singapore so come and escape with me…
