SINGAPORE (May 9, 2012)

agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced a fantastic range of hotel deals in time for the Great Singapore Sale.

Every year, Singapore throws the spotlight on one of its best features: shopping. This year, from May 25 to July 22, the city opens the floodgates to shoppers, with special promotions and big sales offered in every district – from the street stalls of Bugis to the malls of Marina Bay.

For the shopper with a few days to spend, Orchard Road demands at least a full day. Underground passageways link several malls, each with its own collection of international brands. Orchard Road’s interconnecting buildings allow shoppers to browse sheltered from the tropical weather, with plenty of places to grab a quick bite between purchases.

In ION Orchard shoppers can browse the flagship stores of Cartier and Dior, while the luxurious Knightsbridge mall houses Topshop/Topman and a selection of premium UK and US fashion labels. Orchard Building nearby is home to the flagship store of H&M, opened in September 2011 and offering more than 30,000 square feet of fashion.

On the waterfront, Marina Bay Sands is home to some of Singapore’s newest and sleekest shopping experiences. One stand-out attraction is the Louis Vuitton Island Maison concept store, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia and only the fifth in the world. This angular glass building features the latest collections of ready-to-wear and leather goods from LV, plus a full floor of LV luggage, an LV-curated library and a watches and jewelry section.

On a more local tangent, travelers can get a taste of Singaporean culture by browsing the shophouses, market stalls and pushcarts of Bugis, Little India, Chinatown and Kampong Glam. Here, visitors can find handcrafted items, boutique gifts and curios, textiles, vintage clothes, local designer labels and the full range of young adult fashion.

As an incentive for international travelers to come and enjoy the savings, the Great Singapore Sale offers special tourist discounts at a variety of malls across the city. Travelers can sign up for a Tourist Privilege Card for great prices on fashion and dining, plus big percentage store discounts and special gifts.

To help travelers save on accommodation – and leave them more to spend at the sales – agoda.com has secured special hotel deals in a range of Singapore city hotels. Shoppers should book one now for big discounts – up to 55% off!
