Before the circuit-breaker and social distancing measures were enforced, no one knew what a work-cation was. Well, at least I didn’t know what that was until I saw the hotel and apartment advertisements.
“Have a change of working environment while staying safe” were the words on said advertisements. That sounded interesting enough, but I didn’t want to overspend on a hotel room so I decided to try getting some work done in a serviced apartment instead in Chinatown instead.
Truth to be told, I was doubting the whole idea of it. After all, who goes on a “vacation” to do work? Why am I spending more money to do work?
But in the name of research, I ended up booking a one bedroom apartment in Chinatown off Booking.com and stayed there for a night.
There weren’t any options for a shorter duration of stay for this apartment, but there are hotels that offer hourly packages if you really want to work outside of your home during the day.
