SG Hotel on Wheels (SHOW)
An innovative staycation concept, SG Hotel on Wheels (SHOW) is spurred on by the popularity of various ‘pop-up’ retail engagement concepts and promises a new experience every time you visit. SHOW seeks to offer a new refreshing ‘staycay’ experience inside and out with every venue it moves to. With each shift, SHOW offers a brand new view, new activities, new experiences and a new backdrop for your staycations.
At its first pop-up at Downtown East, Begonia Open-Air Carpark, choose from five uniquely designed family suites that comfortably accommodate 4 adults with one queen-sized bed and a double sofa bed for kids, a kitchen, dining area, and living room.

Mummy Valerie visited with your family (2 adults + 2 kids) with the experience sponsored by SHOW! She had 2 x 20ft containers and here are her thoughts on the experience!
Unfortunately, it was raining when we checked in so we couldn’t take photos of the containers and the surrounding. We were please to find Netflix on TV and the kids spent the next hour watching a movie before taking a nap.
By evening, the rain subsided and the Uncle Ringo’s carnival came to life. We decided to takeaway and eat in for dinner as it was very crowded at the eateries. Also each container was given 2 Wild Wild Wet Entry Tickets but we didn’t get to go due to the wet weather. Luckily these are valid for 2 weeks.
We felt that the Downtown East is a good place to have this experience as it is filled with lots to do for families, including Wild Wild Wet, Upwall, Pororo Park, etc, and there is no lack of food options.
The 20ft containers were not meant for 4 pax, thus families should consider taking the 40 ft containers. We were also surprised that our 20ft container doesn’t have a bar fridge. Finally, for those with young children who need to sleep early, do note that the loud music from the carnival will only end around 10.30pm.
Prices starts from $239 per night for 20-footer rooms (for 2 pax, inclusive of a pair of Wild Wild Wet day passes), and $299 per night for 40-footer rooms (for 4 pax, inclusive of a pair of Wild Wild Wet day passes).
