Marina Bay Sands and Resort World Sentosa have launched special deals for Singaporeans to experience non-gaming attractions with subsidies.
Singapore.- Singapore’s Resort World Sentosa (RWS) has announced it is accepting government vouchers as part of payment at the venue.
In a press release issued to promote its staycation deals, the operator said the “the value-for-money promotions and packages can be purchased using SGD$100 SingapoRediscovers Vouchers from 1 December 2020 to 30 June 2021.”
Marina Bay Sands, the other major operator in Singapore, has also been accepting SingapoRediscovers vouchers since November, according to a publication on the company’s website. The vouchers can be used at its attractions, museums, rides, and to pay for part of a stay.
The vouchers are part of government efforts to aid the tourism industry. In July, three government agencies launched the country’s largest domestic tourism campaign in history in an attempt to boost local tourism.
The campaign had a SGD45m (US$32.5m) budget and was a joint initiative from the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), Enterprise Singapore and Sentosa Development Corporation.
As part of the campaign, each Singapore citizen aged over 18 received SGD$100 (US$74.98) worth of vouchers, which can be used to purchase tickets to attractions and book hotel stays.
Vouchers cannot be used to play in casinos but can be used at food and beverage outlets, theme parks and attractions in the resort.
