Let’s be honest; Singapore is one of the most beautiful and eclectic countries in the world. Known for being the home of finance and multiculturalism, it should come as no surprise to learn that millions of people make their way to this destination every single year. Of course, tourists need somewhere to stay when they get there. There are countless accommodation options to choose from in Singapore, and although you can shell out on fancy hotels, more and more people are choosing to stay in hostels. More specifically, more and more people are choosing to sleep in a space pod…
Met A Space Pod
So, what is a Space Pod? Unfortunately, you won’t be jetting off into the abyss anytime soon, but this Met A Space Pod is actually a hostel that first touched down in 2015. The aim of this hostel was to provide tourists and nationals alike the chance to stay somewhere a little different. They wanted to create the illusion of space travel, and they have done just that by creating space pods.
Of course, this isn’t a completely unique idea. Capsule hotels and hostels have been around for many years now, and are becoming a popular alternative to dorm rooms. These capsule hotels offer the cheap price of hostels, but with the privacy of a hotel. The only difference is that you don’t quite get as much space as you’d think. That’s because these pods are normally only large enough to sleep one person, without any space for anything else.
Two Of Them
There are now two of these Met A Space Pod capsule hotels in Singapore, but they are both extremely similar. They offer a state-of-the-art capsule that looks like you really are stepping into a space pod. Although it may look small, each pod comes complete with its very own television, air conditioning, charging stations, a vanity mirror, it’s own safety deposit box and even a fire extinguisher! You really don’t need any more space. The pods themselves are completely private, but you will have to share the communal bathrooms.
If you’ve always wanted to walk on the moon, then you might be waiting a little while before this happens. However, you can jet off into space if you don’t mind small spaces. That’s because these space pods are the coolest new accommodation option in the game.
