Whether you plan to stay and play or take a day trip, you won’t be left disappointed once you’ve come here. Tracing back its history to the pre-industrial era where giant goods manufacturers used to be headquartered here, the city has plenty of modern and hip cafes that were built out of the vacant industrial properties.

9. Industrial-style bedroom with modern art pieces

Minimalistic design is the recurring theme of this one-bedroom apartment. Starting from the marble dining tables with matching seats, to the rustic timber furniture and state-of-the-art decorations, each piece of furniture exudes an unparalleled elegance. We also like the way the timber plantation shutters add a warm feel to the overall look of interiors. Its modern kitchen is also another highlight of this property.
