Singapore Promoted as the Miami of Asia at Athens Event

Singapore was promoted as the “Miami of Asia” during the “Fly Cruise Seminar” event for Greek travel agents that took place recently in Athens.

The event was held to introduce Singapore as a leading tourism and cruise destination in the market of Southeast Asia to Greek travel agents that specialize in outgoing tourism.

During the event, travel agents were informed that Singapore in the coming years is expected to emerge as the “Miami of Asia” thanks to the country’s unique natural wealth and culture, as well as its recent infrastructure investments such as the ultra-modern Marina Bay Cruise Center; Changi Airport, which holds the title of world’s best airport for a seventh year based on Skytrax rankings; and “Jewel”, the $1.3 billion complex at Changi Airport, with a 130-foot indoor waterfall, internal forest, shops, etc. stores.

Moreover, the Greek travel agents were informed that Singapore is a destination ideal for travelers wishing to combine air, land and sea.

“The travel experience does not end with a stay in Singapore… Travelers can arrive at the destination on flights of Singapore Airlines and Scoot, have their holiday on land and then continue on a cruise to Southeast Asia on cruise ships of Royal Caribbean, enjoying dozens of entertainment options and visiting new destinations every day,” it was underlined during the seminar.
