Malaysia, December 2019 – Traveloka, the region’s leading digital travel, lifestyle, and financial services booking platform, is partnering with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to encourage tourists to discover more of Singapore’s hidden gems, popular attractions, and unique experiences. Tourists can utilize the vouchers provided in the “Let’s Go Around Singapore Lah!” travel booklet that they can pick up at the Singapore Visitor Centres (SVCs) at Orchardgateway, Kampong Glam and Funan.
From the hip, eclectic neighborhood in Kampong Glam to the biggest shopping malls, Singapore has many exciting places for tourists to visit. Inspiring tourists to uncover some of these must see attractions, the travel booklet directs tourists to locations across Singapore by using QR codes
The vouchers, amounting to S$15 each, come in a “Let’s go Around Singapore Lah!” travel booklet that offers visitors fun facts, travel tips and hidden gems for their visit to Singapore. Aside from encouraging visits to popular attractions such as Universal Studios Singapore and Gardens by the Bay, visitors can also book lesser-known experiences like the National Orchid Garden and the Tiger Brewery tour from Traveloka Xperience. Providing a fun travel discovery experience, the Traveloka interactive kiosks featuring seasonal themes from Christmas to Chinese New Year will also be available for tourists to explore at the Orchardgateway SVC.
Tourists can also get personalised recommendations at the interactive kiosks when they do a quiz reflecting their personal interests, from 17-26 December 2019. Upon completion of the quiz, visitors will receive a Traveloka Xperience discount voucher of up to $15. This effort is part of the larger Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) signed between Traveloka and the Singapore Tourism Board in April 2019 to promote Singapore as a preferred destination for visitors from five Southeast Asian markets (Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam).
Since April 2019, Traveloka and STB have launched 6 campaigns across the 5 target markets aimed at driving inbound tourism to Singapore and spend on accommodation and experiences. The number of Singapore offerings on Traveloka’s platform have increased to over 200 product listings today.
Terry Santoso, Head of Marketing Traveloka Xperience stated, “This strategic partnership between Traveloka Xperience and STB is aimed at boosting Singapore’s tourism sector, inspiring international travelers to discover the best attractions in the country. Aligned with our commitment to ease the customer’s journey and creating the best user experience, Traveloka Xperience will facilitate tourists to gather comprehensive information on exciting activities that can be done in Singapore while at the same time making it even easier for travelers to find tourism destinations inspiration and book the top attractions, activities, or even tour packages.”
“The Singapore Tourism Board is pleased to support Traveloka in promoting local offerings to visitors through the various SVCs. Southeast Asia is a key market for STB, with Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam consistently within Singapore’s top 15 visitor source markets. Through this collaboration – and the larger STB-Traveloka MOC – we hope to encourage Southeast Asian visitors to spend more time in Singapore, and to explore offerings and experiences that they may not initially have been aware of,” said Mr John Gregory Conceicao, Executive Director of Southeast Asia, Singapore Tourism Board.
“This partnership further underscores Traveloka’s commitment to promoting tourism across the region,” added Terry. “Since launching in Indonesia in 2012, Traveloka has evolved to become a discovery platform where Traveloka Xperience not only provides consumers with a way to book travel to their favorite destinations, but it also serves as a one-stop solution for consumers to enrich their journey through various engaging activities.”
Traveloka Xperience’s informative travel booklet will be available at the three SVCs below from now until 15 November 2020:
