SINGAPORE (May 4, 2011), Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Inc. (Nasdaq: PCLN), is encouraging shoppers to bag a deal at the Great Singapore Sale. To make sure travelers can shop and stay in style, has secured some fantastic rates for the duration of the sale.

Running from May 27 to July 24, the Great Singapore Sale is an annual event that turns the tropical city-state into a shopping extravaganza. Across the city, participating retailers serve up discounts of up to 70 percent on everything from high-tech electronics to the latest fashions – even spa and beauty treatments go on sale.

There's something for every type of shopper, the event stretching from the mega malls of Orchard Road to the hip boutiques of Bugis Street. Visitors can not only snap up savings, they can take in some of Singapore's most iconic landmarks along the way. Must-see attractions like the Merlion, the durian-shaped Esplanade building, and the sleek Marina Bay Sands provide fascinating diversions between shopping sessions, with arts, entertainment, and great dining at hand around the clock.

While shopping is the focal point of Singapore during the eight-week sale, travelers also have the opportunity to catch some world-class entertainment. Marina Bay Sands hosts The Lion King musical until the end of June, Sentosa Resorts World presents the acrobatic spectacular Voyage de la Vie, and the Singapore Arts Festival runs until June 15 for those with an interest in theater and the visual arts. For travelers arriving in Singapore early, the week-long Audi Fashion Festival from May 13 is an exciting prelude to the sales.

As always, Singapore is a treasure-trove for travelers interested in exploring different cultures. Singapore boasts a rich heritage, with Malay, Chinese, Indian and British influences found everywhere: Peranakan shophouses line Joo Chiat Road, Hindu temples dot the city, and historic hotels like Raffles and the Fullerton give travelers a taste of old Britannia. For foodies, Singapore offers endless opportunities to indulge, with chili crab and laksa amongst the city's signature dishes. Hawker food is also delicious and plentiful.
