The pressure to work long hours and an unhealthy workaholic culture in Singapore with reluctance to take annual leave can make it hard for most people to squeeze in any form of downtime. 

For tired millennials, Gen-Zs, digital nomads and even families, there’s a solution that offers a trip of a lifetime and a quick escape without spending your leave days: daycations!

Part of the joy in taking a daycation is spontaneity. You don’t have to come up with an itemised itinerary or even skip that important Zoom meeting, but with just a few clicks you can bring that perfect getaway that seemed unattainable within reach. 

Stayr, a booking platform that allows you to check in and out of hotels anytime, with any duration, is a life-saver for tired individuals who want me-time for just a couple of hours. 

Here’s your chance to plan an escape plan and still make it back to work! These five places let you stay for a couple of hours at a range of hotels from capsule hotels to four and five-star hotels starting at $7 per hour. Get $5 off if you make a booking at any of Stayr’s locations with the promo code JUNEHOLI5 for the entire month of June!
