Public Buses Are Repurposed Into Fancy Rooms At This Glamorous Resort In Singapore
You can soon stay at Changi's new resort hotel with rooms made from repurposed public buses that once served the streets of Singapore
The Bus Collective is a new resort located in the heart of Changi Village, and comprises of 20 decommissioned public buses which have been refashioned into luxury suites.
According to The Straits Times, each room comes furnished with hotel amenities such as king-sized beds, couches, flatscreen TVs, and bathtubs. Besides that, all rooms have an area of 45 square metres.
The rooms may look like any other hotel room, but they retain the original features of an actual bus — including the steering wheel, driver's seat, and windows. Perfect for those who are curious to find out what it's like to spend a night in a former mode of transportation.
But, if you're not going for the concert, there are loads to check nearby the suite
The resort is just a stone's throw away from several tourists' spots such as Changi Village Hawker Centre, Changi East Boardwalk, and Changi Chapel & Museum, reported Time Out KL.
Guests are also welcome to join nature and history tours, including bicycle explorations of Pulau Ubin and a Let’s Go Makan food tour of venues in Changi, Bedok, and Tampines.
Room bookings for a stay starting in December are now open
Room rates begin from SGD398 (which is approximately RM1,400) per night.
This resort is the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, and is a collaboration between WTS Travel and its partners, reported CNA.
However there are only 20 buses on the property, so availability is limited.
