Guess you can say it is an otherworldly experience.

Shipping Container Hotel, a pop-up boutique hotel housed within cargo containers, has sprung up at a new location: Haw Par Villa.
What's inside the container hotel rooms
There will be just two containers rooms available at Haw Par Villa, sporting a simple and functional interior.
Think soft neutral tones and light wood-textured furnishing, similar to a BTO flat.
Each container comes with a kitchenette and is equipped with an electric stove, a hob, a microwave, a fridge, and an electric kettle to prepare simple meals with.
The container room is fully air-conditioned and comes with wifi, an ensuite toilet, a dining area, a living area, a work or study area, and an outdoor patio.
The living area and study area both have a queen-sized murphy bed, or a concealed wall bed that can be lowered when it's time to sleep.
The container room can sleep up to four, but extra beds (roll-up mattresses) are available for S$50 per bed per night.
One of the container rooms is also pet-friendly, should patrons decide to bring their furry friend along for the staycation.
For patrons who'd really like to lean into the full cabin in the woods experience, they can rent an electric barbecue grill for an additional S$20 to prepare their meals on the outdoor patio.
Patrons of the shipping container hotel can also visit the nearby Hell's Museum, where they are entitled to 50 per cent off the entrance tickets.
There are also other attractions, amenities, and eateries in and around the vicinity, such as Haw Par Villa itself, The Sixth Milestone, a bistro that is located within Haw Par Villa, and Sparkle Mall.
Depending on when the booking is, prices for each container room can start from S$200++ for a night, and more information can be found here.
However, slots are moving fast, and we spy only a small window of availability left, in January.
