Singapore: The Serangoon Neighborhood
One big advantage if you stay on bed and breakfast is that you taste a different flavor of the city. While hotels and lodges will always give you the 3-5 star experience, if indeed it is available on the city, there is a certain charm waking up to a home right in the city. You could wake up on a real house, with furniture , sometimes with little children. You could feel the real thing – how it would be to live in the city.
