Receive the VIP treatment on your travels

For many of us, now that the weather is getting colder, and the dark nights are setting in, we’re keen to pack our suitcases and jet off to somewhere more exotic to get some much needed relaxation and recreation. While that’s the case, it can be quite tough deciding where you should go – there are many lively, vibrant places that offer up a wide array of activities and attractions to keep you amused during your stay. That being said, if you want a dynamic, high impact experience that’s more VIP than budget, then Singapore is a prime place for you to choose.

The tourist industry in Singapore has consistently grown over the last several years, and, while it seems to be slowing, there is still proof that growth is taking place. Looking at the statistics, Singapore saw in over 14 million tourists last year, which is up by 9% when compared with 2011. Although the forecasts put forward by TTG Asia have played down the moderate increase, there is no denying that steady progression in the tourist trade is set to continue. Furthermore, in addition to the billions generated by tourism, the casino scene in Singapore has also created a substantial revenue which has seen high amounts, such as $5.85 billion made in 2012 alone. This significant income is why Singapore’s casino sector is now the third biggest, with Macau, and Las Vegas at the forefront.
