SINGAPORE (August 29, 2012)
agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced hard-to-find rooms in some of Singapore's most stylish hotels for the F1 race weekend.
The Singapore F1 is one of the nation's most exciting and anticipated events. F1 enthusiasts from around the world converge on the city to take part in the thrill of the races and experience Singapore's world-class dining and vibrant after-hours scene.
Scheduled from 21 to 23 September 2012, this year's Grand Prix event promises something for everyone. While the main race is the undisputed climax of the weekend, supporting events make for an action-packed three-day weekend for all attendees. In 2012, supporting races include the debut of the GP2 and Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli races on the Marina Bay circuit, plus the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, now in its 10th year.
Each year, concerts by leading artists entertain ticket-holders between races. These concerts have become just as much a part of the Singapore F1 experience as the races themselves, and for many they're even the main highlight. This year, international headliners at the F1 stands are Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Taiwanese superstar Jay Chou, Noel Gallagher of Oasis fame, Bananarama, The Proclaimers and Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders.
Outside of the F1 event, Singapore offers plenty of cultural and leisure pursuits. A visit to Orchard Road is a must for shopaholics, art lovers will appreciate the Singapore Art Museum's program for September and, as always, there's the lure of a cold Singapore Sling at Raffles' Long Bar. For fun family-friendly activities, travelers can head to Sentosa for some beach time or take the Night Safari bus through the open-air enclosures of nocturnal creatures such as lions, tigers, and hyenas.
