Proximity to tourist attractions is one of the primary considerations when it comes to choosing suitable accommodation for your stay. If sight-seeing is a high priority for you, it only makes perfect sense to stay near the places you plan to check out. 

Getting around Singapore is generally hassle-free, but why not make things more convenient for you by staying at hotels that are near dining, shopping, and adventure spots? Here are some of the best places to stay where you get easy access to the sites that matter.
