Singapore is known for its iconic landmarks such as Marina Bay Sands, the Merlion, and Gardens by the Bay. However, there are many lesser-known destinations that are just as fascinating and unique. These hidden gems are often tucked away in the city’s neighbourhoods and offer a glimpse into Singapore’s diverse culture and history.
For this reason, the Singapore Tourism Board has introduced SingapoRewards, a new programme that offers free experiences to tourists from abroad. Visitors will have the opportunity to try nearly 40 new or off-the-beaten-path experiences in Singapore for free under this programme, which will continue through 2023.
Meanwhile, from 7 March 2023, short-term visitors to Singapore who qualify may choose a complimentary experience from a list of SingapoRewards activities that have been carefully chosen. Many of these encounters will offer access to uncommon, exclusive activities or showcase lesser-known points of interest.
Even for repeat travellers, these encounters will provide fresh perspectives on Singapore. Book and redeem via the VisitSingapore app or SingapoRewards microsite.
