After three months living in Melbourne, I'm back in Singapore for a few days during the school term break. I didn't actually miss Singapore until I arrived at Changi Airport and all the good memories came back to me. Walking along the streets, jumping on the MRT, sweating in the heat- nostalgia. It's amazing how this country feels more like home than Perth.
For my short trip in Singapore, I'm staying at Hotel Clover The Arts. I was intrigued by the artistic murals on the hotel's external walls and rooms. It is a simple, affordable, cosy accommodation for the short term. If you are in Singapore for under a week and are travelling solo or with a partner, this hotel is perfect for you. Located just 5 minutes walk from Clarke Quay MRT and across from the hustle and bustle of bars, restaurants and nightlife of Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay. Every room has a unique mural. I was hoping to get the room with the room-size mural of Mount Fuji but unfortunately, was allocated to an underwhelming yellow flower. Perhaps a daffodil? The rooms, apart from the murals are nothing special. The rooms are small (hence perfect for solo with duo, but not a family), clean and the staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The hotel does an in-house breakfast too for a price but with the amazing location and eateries surrounding the area, I recommend to skip on the hotel breakfast and head out for breakfast at a cafe or local breakfast eatery.
