Good reason to visit Singapore Half price entrance fees for Malaysians at 15 attractions
SINGAPORE’s well-known cele-brity contractor Phua Chu Kang was in town recently to urge Malaysians to visit his country in conjunction with the Half Price Singapore Surprise campaign (HPSS).
Singapore Tourism Board (Malaysia) area director Gerald Lum, who introduced Phua to guests during the launch, said HPSS under Singapore Tourism Board’s 2009 Reasons to enjoy Singapore was specially designed for Malaysians travelling to the island.
“We want to give our Malaysian neighbours a unique and memorable time when visiting Singapore, hence this campaign is specially targeted at Malaysians,” said Lum.
Malaysian tourists will be enjoying half price entrance fees at 15 popular attractions like the Singapore Zoo, Night Safari, Jurong Bird Park, Science Centre, Singapore Flyer, Sentosa Imbiah, HiPPO River Cruise and Captain Explorer DUKw Tour as well as the three new entries, The Mint Museum of Toys, GoGreen Segway Eco Adventure and Desperados at Sentosa.
All they need to do is produce their passport and embarkation card at the ticket counters to enjoy the promotional rates from May 29 to June 30.
Malaysians can choose to pay the corresponding published rates in Ringgit Malaysia (RM) or get a 50% discount off published rates if they choose to pay in Singapore dollar.
However, no change will be given if the transaction is made in Ringgit Malaysia. The promotion is not applicable to Singapore permanent residents, Malaysians with Singapore work permits, employment and those with student passes.
Some popular shopping malls on the island will also be open till 11pm for late night shopping during its Great Singapore Sale which runs from May 29 to July 26.
Shopaholics can also look out for two new additions on Singapore’s premier shopping belt along Orchard Road which just underwent a multi-million dollar makeover.
The two malls are Orchard Central, dubbed as Singapore’s tallest shopping mall and the up market Ion Orchard which will be open to the public in May and July respectively.
“The HPSS campaign has been well accepted by Malaysians as it allows them to stretch their ringgit further for a value-for-money experience at popular tourist destinations in Singapore,
“It is also another good reason for Malaysians to spend quality time with their family,” said Lum at the launch in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
In line with promoting these value deals, Tiger Airways is offering 15,000 free air tickets to those tra-velling to Singapore from Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu or Kuching. The booking period is from May 7 to June 7 and travelling period is from May 29 to July 26.
