agoda.com offers last-minute deals for the Singapore F1 night race
SINGAPORE (September 14, 2011)
agoda.com, Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today released hard-to-find last-minute deals at Singapore hotels for F1 race weekend.
Taking place this year on Sunday 25 September, the Singapore Grand Prix is a truly exhilarating event. The race draws F1 enthusiasts from around the globe and offers an electrifying program of entertainment that extends far beyond the racetrack.
In the days leading up to the event, Singapore comes to life with concerts, theatre shows, street performance and parties. International musicians headlining concerts this year include Linkin Park, Shakira, Boy George, 90s pop icon Rick Astley, rapper Shaggy and Filipina teen star Charice. G-Dragon & T.O.P and Seungri from Korean boy band Big Bang will also be performing.
The Singapore Grand Prix is Formula One's only night race. Staged on a five-kilometer street circuit, the track comprises a difficult 21 turns through the Marina Bay area past some of the city's most famous landmarks. Spectators can watch from several stands around the track – the main Padang stage grandstand located at the checkered flag on Connaught Drive. It takes 61 laps to complete the race, considered by many drivers to be one of F1's most challenging.
As always, visitors to Singapore have world-class shopping and dining at their fingertips. As part of F1 celebrations, select shops, bars, and restaurants will offer extra deals and discounts. Sideshows include Bollywood and Broadway productions, international dance and music, art installations and dance music events, all staged around the stunning Marina Bay area.
To promote savings for travelers during the Grand Prix, agoda.com has secured rooms at special rates at hotels around Singapore for race weekend. Spectators should book their rooms as soon as possible or risk missing out on this truly high-octane event.
