Default Movable hotels

We're in a huge era of transformation of accommodation... With AirBnB, the possibilities for temporary accommodation are mind-boggling, and becoming even more so...

That's why this idea seems to be of our time!

The essential idea is to transform shipping containers into livable dwellings - equipped with bathroom, kitchen, dining area, a bedroom, and which can sleep 4 people.

These shipping containers can be placed where you can't place permanent structures. And - because they are shipping containers - they can be moved!

What you have is effectively a movable hotel!

The guy's idea is to move them every few years...

It can cost around $50,000 to $80,000 US dollars to transform a shipping container into what is effectively a small apartment. (And this is in Malaysia / Singapore, so it could be cheaper or more expensive to set up in other places due to different labor costs.)

Very interesting idea, though...!

We have visitors from all over the world here... Maybe this could work in your neck of the woods?

Entrepreneur's out-of-the-box idea for shipping-container hotel in Singapore

Best wishes!
