There are plenty of out-of-Singapore experiences to make up for the lack of travel. You can "travel" to:

- Japan at a sakura-filled cafe in Orchard Road
- Korea at an autumn-themed cafe in Tanjong Pagar
- Taiwan at a minimalist cafe in West Coast
- Hong Kong at a glamorous hidden cafe in Chinatown
- Spain at a rose-filled bar near Somerset
- Thailand at a $0.80 boat noodle bistro in Yishun

Adding to the list is a breathtaking Japanese restaurant with a zen garden that'll instantly transport you to Kyoto, Japan: Keyaki Restaurant.

Located at Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore, the Garden Pavilion next to Keyaki Restaurant looks straight outta Kyoto. Clad in traditional Shoji-inspired screens, the pavilion overlooks a beautifully sculpted Japanese garden and a koi pond.

This 40-seater private dining space was built in 2018 to provide diners with a sense of exclusivity and luxury. It can be customised for private luncheons and dinners, cocktail receptions and even weddings.

Besides the architecture and garden, there's more to remind you of Japan like the Japanese posters and a giant tanuki statue.
