Agoda.com opens up fantastic hotel deals for the Great Singapore Sale
SINGAPORE (May 22, 2013)
Agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), has announced a variety of hotel deals in the leadup to the Great Singapore Sale, one of the island nation’s biggest yearly events.
Celebrating its 20th year and taking place from 31 May to 28 July, the sale – often abbreviated simply as GSS – is an annual event centered on the one thing that Singapore is known best for – shopping. Sales, specials and super saver deals by some of the country’s best-known retail names are spread out across the city offering shoppers a great way to stock up on their favorite brands while seeing some of the city’s most dynamic neighborhoods.
Of course, most people familiar with Singapore have heard of Orchard Road, the central shopping district of the city and one of the most iconic commercial destinations in Asia. With endless stores, huge shopping malls and below- and above-ground connections linking them all together, the biggest crowds will undoubtedly be here seeking out deals. This includes the massive ION Orchard mall and the Mandarin Gallery.
Other areas heaving with shoppers will be favorite commercial neighborhoods such as Chinatown, Kampong Glam, Holland Village or Little India, where shoppers can find unique objects, novelties and handcrafted items that reflect the unique personality of the neighborhood they’re sold in. Many of these neighborhoods also offer eclectic restaurants, live music and funky coffee shops to help shoppers recharge during their long day.
Shoppers can also check out the inaugural Singapore International Jewelry Expo 2013 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Center from 4 to 7 July, which will showcase displays from leading designers, brands and gemstone suppliers from around the world across 8,000 square meters of floor space.
The best part of the festival is that in order to accommodate the crowds of deal seekers, many of the stores and malls will be staying open late to maximize the shopping opportunities. No more rushing to get everything done before the stores close!
To top it all off, the grand prize of the event is the MasterCard Biggest Spender Reward, in which the biggest spender of the festival can win S$20,000. Details are available on the GSS website, but if that’s not an incentive to stock up on new supplies, nothing is! Check out the festival’s official website here: http://www.greatsingaporesale.com.sg
