Many of us have probably gotten used to working from home by now.

With a lot of offices and universities closed during the pandemic, we're forced to make do with our beds, desks, and even dining tables at home.

After a while of working from home, you might want a change of scenery.

Personally, I find myself shifting from one corner of my house to another, all in the name of "spicing things up" and to save myself from being bored of the same view.

On a brighter note, there's been a recent trend that has taken the Malaysian hotel industry by storm and a lot of places are now offering fancy work from hotel packages.

Instead of checking-in for a night's stay, you are now welcomed to work in either hotel rooms or lounges and enjoy their super 'atas' ambience.

Here are a few local hotels which offer attractive work remotely packages:

1. The Chow Kit, Kuala Lumpur

Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, The Chow Kit takes pride in offering luxury at an affordable price tag.
