SingapoRewards, which was introduced by the Singapore Tourism Board, gives foreign tourists freebies while they are in Singapore. Visitors will have the chance to try nearly 40 new or “off-the-beaten-path” experiences in Singapore for free through this programme which will run through 2023
BEGINNING 7th March 2023, eligible short-term visitors to Singapore can select a free activity from a list of hand-picked SingapoRewards activities that practically guarantee unforgettable experiences. Many of these activities will provide access to unique, exclusive experiences. Even for seasoned tourists who have already visited Singapore, these experiences will collectively offer fresh perspectives. Bookings and redemptions can be made through the VisitSingapore app or the SingapoRewards microsite.
Mr Keith Tan, Chief Executive Officer of the Singapore Tourism Board, said, “Tourism has returned strongly to Singapore since our borders reopened fully last year. As more international travellers return, we want to enhance their experience in Singapore by introducing them to hidden gems that are unique to our country. By focusing on innovative experiences, SingapoRewards also provides a platform for local businesses to launch and test new products and offerings. I invite all visitors to explore our city’s diverse offerings through SingapoRewards, and to share their positive experience with others.”
