Singapore Tourism Board and Singapore Airlines Join Hands to Make Singapore the Choice Stop-Over Destination in Asia

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 24, 2014

Today, the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Singapore Airlines (SIA) unveiled a new partnership that will make traveling to and through Singapore even more enticing for U.S. visitors. The Singapore Stopover Holiday (SSH) package brings together unique offerings with Singapore Airlines to inspire those whose journeys have them stopping in Singapore by granting access to a wide array of activities and exploration opportunities.

Priced from U.S. $ 35, the basic stopover package includes a choice of accommodation at over 35 hotels and free return airport transfers. For an additional US$ 12, it also includes complimentary admissions to over 15 of Singapores key attractions, including the city-wide SIA hop-on bus, admissions to the latest state-of-the-art conservatories at Gardens by the Bay, 5 museums passes, guided walking tours of heritage precincts and free civic district bumboat tour. Visitors looking to immerse in Singapores renowned street food culture can also enjoy a free street food tasting sampler from the popular nighttime hawker market, Makansutra Gluttons Bay, or if checking out the hottest roof top bar is more your cup of tea, a complimentary pour at the world famous 1-Altitude rooftop gallery and bar is also part of the deal. Some of these experiences are specially curated just for Singapore Stopover Holiday passengers from the U.S.

To top off the deal, for a limited campaign period, travelers can take advantage of outstanding airfare-only deals on flights from the U.S. to Singapore and a range of Asian destinations including Bangkok and Bali, priced from $ 912.

Singapores unique and dynamic cityscape coupled with its multi-cultural offerings have always been a perfect twin with some of our neighboring destinations, be it the resorts at Bali or the beaches in Thailand. This stopover product really hopes to give visitors a compelling reason to come sample all that Singapore has to offer, said Kershing Goh, Regional Director, Singapore Tourism Board, Americas.

Singapore Airlines prides itself on making the unique culture of Singapore accessible to travelers all over the world, said Mr. Sek Eng Lee, Regional Vice President Americas for SIA.
