IN a challenge to dispel misconceptions that the real Singapore is not only about shopping malls on Orchard Road and chilli crab, the Singapore Tourist Board took 18 key MICE professionals from Australia and New Zealand on a hosted, three day ‘Discover the Real Singapore’ MICE famil this month.
In keeping with the board’s new ‘Get Lost and find the real Singapore’ campaign, the group visited a number of the destination’s hidden gems, such as a cooking School on Pulau Ubin and newest offerings relevant to the MICE industry, including the Singapore Flyer breakfast experience.
The group were also lucky enough to undertake a hard hat tour of the new Gardens By the Bay project (see p3), with the first phase of this stunning creation
scheduled to open on 29 June.
