Trip101 has partnered with Filipina travel content creator Kenna Duque, who spent an enlightening weekend at lyf Farrer Park Singapore, a strong contender amongst the various apartment hotels that have sprung up to accommodate Singapore’s many visitors.
Singapore has several names. While “Lion City” and “Garden City” are two of its more popular ones, the myriad cultures that call it home have also led to this island nation being called “instant Asia.” A simple walk through Chinatown or Little India will introduce visitors to unique cultures that coexist peacefully. Apart from having cultural wealth, Singapore is also an economical powerhouse with a skyline dominated by sleek skyscrapers equipped with cutting-edge technology. It’s no surprise, thus, that the nation is flocked by tourists drawn to its one-of-a-kind charm.

Cozy living in One of A Kind (Studio)
Kenna’s choice was the studio, which she described as “clean, well-lit, and equipped with all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay.” She also particularly appreciated the plush queen bed in this studio, which according to her, guarantees a good night’s rest. Next to the bed is a long desk with enough space for both work and play, depending on your needs.
One of her favorite parts of the room was the large window by the bed with a view of the city. She also appreciated the minimalist décor, which created a soothing space to relax in.
