'Enjoy real value for money' in Singapore

Travellers booking flights to Singapore will discover that every budget is catered for on their arrival in the city state.

This is according to the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), which revealed that visitor arrivals to the microstate increased 17.6 percent year-on-year in January, totalling 908,000 – the highest ever recorded in the month.

STB’s northern and western Europe area director Eunice Yeo said Singapore is a "melting pot of culture and colour" thanks to a mix of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian nationalities.

Highlighting the island city state’s value for money, Ms Yeo said it has a range of accommodation, inexpensive cuisine and "competitively priced visitor attractions".

"The city’s super efficient and inexpensive public transport system enables visitors to travel around the city easily, further maximising their travel budgets," she commented.

"The sheer range and quality of Singapore’s tourism product means that all visitors, whether on a shoestring or splashing out, enjoy real value for money."

Preliminary figures from the Pacific Asia Travel Association recently revealed a three percent year-on-year rise in the number of international visitors travelling to the Asia Pacific region during November 2009.
