Agoda in the News offers fantastic hotel specials for the Great Singapore Sale

SINGAPORE (May 7, 2014), one of Asia's leading hotel booking sites and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), is offering superb deals on hotels during the Great Singapore Sale, the island nation's annual shopping festival that sees across-the-board specials on everything from food to makeup to jewelry.

What started 20 years ago to give a boost to Singapore's then-burgeoning shopping scene has turned into an annual event offering sales, specials and deals on a huge selection of merchandise. There is something for all types of shoppers, from individuals selling homemade wares, to independent merchants and right up to global brands. This year the event runs from 30 May to 27 July.

It is the sheer variety of vendors and goods available that transforms the Great Singapore Sale from a simple shopping excursion into a cultural journey. Reflecting Singapore's famously eclectic population, shoppers can browse mom & pop stores in Chinatown or Little India, discover retro treasures at the Thieves' Market, peek into fashion boutiques on Ann Siang Road, or get lost in the massive interconnected network of malls along Orchard Road.

Singapore also offers plenty to see and do if one needs a break from the malls. During the day, recharge your brain with a visit to one of the many museums or art galleries, stroll amid the amazing architecture at Marina Bay, or relax on the beach on Sentosa Island. In the evening, head to a rooftop bar to gaze across the city's futuristic skyline, or check out the cafes and live music in Holland Village.

Especially savvy shoppers can check out the great promotions, prizes, contests, and tax rebates available. More details can be found at before planning the trip.
