How do you make the most of your business trip and explore Singapore like a local? It's all about where you stay...
The life of a corporate traveller can seem like an exciting one, but the novelty of being a frequent flyer can fizzle out in an instant – especially if your itinerary involves a marathon of business meetings. After all, no one likes to be stuck catching up on work day and night when there’s a whole new city to explore! The trick to making the most out of your business trip boils down to picking the right hotel, and we’ve got just the one for you. Located at Clarke Quay, Park Regis Singapore offers everything you need to make it a smooth and productive trip, including a meeting room, workstations, and even bi-monthly seminars and networking sessions. The perk? You’ll be staying in the middle of the action, so you can soak up the city when you’re off-duty.
Here’s how to nail the Workation in Singapore…
CBD by day, vibrant neighbourhood by night
Office workers throng the areas surrounding Park Regis Singapore during the day, but come nightfall, it transforms into a vibrant entertainment hub. After a long work day, head to one of Clarke Quay’s many restaurants and clubs, such as Cuban cantina Cuba Libre, Mexican restaurant Muchos, and of course, Singapore’s most famous club: Zouk.
All the perks in one package
Another major draw is Park Regis Singapore’s comprehensive #sginsiders Workation package. To ease the stress of a business trip, Park Regis Singapore has included all the essentials (and then some) in this package. It includes two bottles of fruit juice and a daily buffet breakfast for two, perfect for that perk-me-up before business meetings. The package also comes with the complimentary use of a ‘handy phone’, comprising free unlimited international phone calls to ten destinations, local calls, and unlimited 3G mobile internet.
If you have some time to spare, why not explore the city using the hotel’s bicycles or e-scooters, which are free for up to two hours. Cycle or scoot to nearby Chinatown for chicken rice from the Michelin-starred Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodles, or slurp up traditional Chinese desserts at Mei Heong Yuan Dessert. The Civic District, home to the National Gallery Singapore and Asian Civilisations Museum, is also a quick ride away if history and the arts are more up your alley.
Rub shoulders with local entrepreneurs
Taking business travel to a whole new level, Park Regis Singapore has launched a networking series with local networking group The New Savvy. Happening once every two months, you’ll receive insights from special guests (its first edition featured The New Savvy’s Anna Haotanto, Love, Bonito’s Rachel Lim and Wander’s Krystal Choo), and mingle with fellow like-minded attendees.
Local executives, you can have a slice of the pie too. Park Regis Singapore has customised its Work and Play meeting room package for Singapore guests, and it includes the complimentary use of a projector and screen, audio system, flip charts and writing materials, with free-flow coffee and tea to get those ideas brewing.
