Get cosy in a Muji-style capsule hotel
Solo travel can be liberating, but for those who need some time to warm up to the idea of travelling alone, there are plenty of solo staycay spots in Singapore to choose from. For a taste of minimalist living, book a night's stay at the KINN Capsule Hotel at Clarke Quay, which features capsule-style rooms with pull-down blinds, dual charging ports, a concealed shelf, and a pull-out round mirror.
Where: KINN Capsule Hotel, 39 South Bridge Road, Singapore 058673

Snuggle up to a good book at MangaWork
Trust us, there's nothing better than curling up in a comfy spot with a good book. Book a visit to Mangawork, a Japanese-themed workplace and lounge, where you can snuggle up on a window-adjacent bean bag in the Thinker room, or sprawl out comfortably on a tatami chair in the Napper room. For Manga fans, there's also a ton of Manga comics to sift through and borrow from the library by the concierge. Otherwise, catch up on your favourite Netflix series with the touch-screen tablets provided to each room, complete with power sockets and high-speed WiFi.
