Although the Ministry of Manpower has updated its guidelines to allow more employees to return to the workplace, working from home remains to be the default job set-up as it adheres to the social distancing guidelines.
Despite this, not everyone is blessed with a peaceful space at home. Employees have to strike a balance between their personal and professional lives without being distracted with other factors. Concentrating on one’s tasks takes a whole lot of patience and discipline.
If you are looking for a suitable place for a rewarding workcation or a work-from-hotel option to escape the distractions inside your home, look no further than the places found on this list.
