Brace yourself Singapore for a new travel festival is in town! Breaking free from the confines of the traditional travel fair model, Klook is pleased to launch the Klook Travel Festival, a one-of-a-kind experiential travel fair that brings together and celebrates travel, fun and community under one roof. The Klook Travel Festival will also be the first fair in Singapore to exclusively target a growing segment of Free and Independent travellers (FITs).
The event space will comprise eight photogenic experiential travel zones, featuring Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia, Europe, Australia and the USA. Each zone is decorated with mini replicas of iconic photo spots in these destinations such as the Bali Swing, the iconic Stylenanda bathtub and even the Trevi fountain of Rome.
There will also be Klook promo codes for attendees who book on the day and 1-1 flash deals on stage and at each of the respective travel zones which will house themed booths by Universal Studios Japan, Japan Rail (JR) West, Korea Tourism Organisation (KTO), Hong Kong Disneyland, Hong Kong Airport Express by MTR Corporation Limited, Sunway Lagoon Malaysia, KTourStory and Evan Evans.
BUILD YOUR OWN HOLIDAY
Inspired by the “build-a-bear” concept, head on over to the Klook’s “Wall of Fame” in each experiential zone and pick up card collectibles that let you mix and match activities for that perfect holiday. The wall will feature a selection of best-sellers and curated gems from 17 countries that range from essentials to oddball experiences.
Have burning queries about a Klook activity? Hop on the “Ask Klook” carousel where staff will be on-hand to answer your questions and dispense travel advice too.
Paying tribute to the romance of rail travel, the event will also feature a booth designed to look like a train station. Rail experts on Japan, Europe and China will be around to share their expertise and help with booking queries.
