On 19 June 2015, TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel site, announced the launch of TripAdvisor Singapore 50, a special hub created in conjunction with Singapore’s 50th birthday. Presented by InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®) hotels in Singapore and in partnership with Viator, the hub will house a list of 50 iconic places to visit in Singapore, based on TripAdvisor data on the most-reviewed attractions and eateries in the country.
“TripAdvisor’s list of 50 iconic places to visit is an ideal starting point for taking in everything that is unique about Singapore,” said Cindy Tan, vice president, APAC at TripAdvisor. “We are delighted to team up with IHG hotels in Singapore and Viator to present exciting travel offers and experiences to the millions of TripAdvisor users that come to our site each month to plan and book their trip to Singapore.”
The list of 50 attractions includes perennial tourist favourites such as the Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Zoo, Universal Studios Singapore, Merlion Park and the Singapore Botanic Gardens, as well as popular Singaporean neighbourhoods such as Orchard Road, Chinatown, Little India and Clarke Quay. Other iconic things to do include having the famous Singapore Sling at Long Bar, enjoying local food at Lau Pa Sat Festival Market, understanding Singapore’s history at the Changi Chapel and Museum, shopping any time of the day at Mustafa Centre and visiting the islands of Sentosa or Pulau Ubin.
To complement TripAdvisor’s list of 50 iconic places to visit in Singapore and to provide travellers with a complete SG50 experience, from 20 June to 31 August, travellers can enjoy special deals and discounts on all six IHG hotels and a selection of Viator tours in Singapore, covering some of the must-see attractions such as Night Safari, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Zoo, Sentosa Island and Universal Studios Singapore.
