Aqueen Hotel Lavender
Aqueen Hotel Lavender is located at the fringe of Singapore’s city center and a 10- minute walk from Lavender MRT Station (EW11). For visitors arriving by air to Changi Airport, it is a comfortable 35-minute train ride along the Green Line (East-West) to Lavender MRT station.
Lavender Aqueen Hotel is also just an 8-minute taxi ride to Singapore Marina Bay Sands Casino if you itch for some jackpot action or a few hands of blackjack.
Convenient Base for Day Trips to Malaysia
For visitors who wish to maximize their Singapore trip, they can head over to Golden Mile Complex to book affordable 1-day tours to Malaysia. Over at Golden Mile Complex are many economy and premium coach enterprises offering various 1 or 2-day tours to nearby Malaysian cities. One can take their same day coach packages to Johor Bahru for farms visiting and durian tasting or for the shopping aficionados; to Johor Premium Outlet to bargain hunt for branded fashion at knockdown prices.
Golden Mile Complex is located on Beach Road which is just two streets from rear of the prominent building of Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) of Singapore. Getting to ICA building from Lavender Aqueen Hotel is very easy – just walk to Lavender MRT station, enter the underpass and come out from Exit A on the side of ICA building.
At the same time, foreign visitors can also extend their short-term visit pass over the counter in ICA building.
Delicious Local Food under One-Roof
Visitors are blessed with the existence of the Lavender Food Square which is less than 5-minute walk down Lavender Street from Aqueen’s hotel doorstep. The sprawling food court serves predominantly local Chinese-style dishes like the famous chicken rice, wanton noodles, pig’s organ soup and beef noodles. You will find a smattering of Muslim (must try – Old Bibik’s Nasi Rendang) and Indian food stalls too and the best thing is Lavender Food Square operates till late into the night.
A tip for foreign visitors – whenever you see a long queue outside a particular food stall, you should join in because the locals are known to queue up to 1 hour just for good food!
When you are at Golden Mile Complex also known as mini-Thailand by the locals, you can try out authentic Thai food (probably the best in Singapore) dished out at many of the cafes with real Thai chefs.
Unusual Mix – Arts and 24-hour Shopping
Aqueen Hotel is located near to Jalan Besar district that are dotted with many old-world charm shop houses and it is in one of these traditional shop houses at 265 Lavender Street that the Moni Art Gallery stands out. Moni Gallery specializes in contemporary oil paintings and sculptures produced by world’s artists. If you prefer Chinese ink paintings, head over to Xuan Hua Art Gallery nestled in Bussorah Street, a row of quaint, refurbished shop houses from the colonial era and belonging to part of Singapore Arab Quarters heritage.
