Agoda.com Opens up Fantastic Hotel Deals for the Great Singapore Sale


Singapore (PRWEB) May 22, 2013

Agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), has announced a variety of hotel deals in the lead-up to the Great Singapore Sale, one of the island nation’s biggest yearly events.

Celebrating its 20th year and taking place from 31 May to 28 July, the sale – often abbreviated simply as GSS – is an annual event centered on the one thing that Singapore is known best for – shopping. Sales, specials and super saver deals by some of the country’s best-known retail names are spread out across the city offering shoppers a great way to stock up on their favorite brands while seeing some of the city’s most dynamic neighborhoods.

Of course, most people familiar with Singapore have heard of Orchard Road, the central shopping district of the city and one of the most iconic commercial destinations in Asia. With endless stores, huge shopping malls and below- and above-ground connections linking them all together, the biggest crowds will undoubtedly be here seeking out deals. This includes the massive ION Orchard mall and the Mandarin Gallery.

Other areas heaving with shoppers will be favorite commercial neighborhoods such as Chinatown, Kampong Glam, Holland Village or Little India, where shoppers can find unique objects, novelties and handcrafted items that reflect the unique personality of the neighborhood they’re sold in. Many of these neighborhoods also offer eclectic restaurants, live music and funky coffee shops to help shoppers recharge during their long day.

Shoppers can also check out the inaugural Singapore International Jewelry Expo 2013 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Center from 4 to 7 July, which will showcase displays from leading designers, brands and gemstone suppliers from around the world across 8,000 square meters of floor space.

The best part of the festival is that in order to accommodate the crowds of deal seekers, many of the stores and malls will be staying open late to maximize the shopping opportunities. No more rushing to get everything done before the stores close!

To top it all off, the grand prize of the event is the MasterCard Biggest Spender Reward, in which the biggest spender of the festival can win S$ 20,000. Details are available on the GSS website, but if that’s not an incentive to stock up on new supplies, nothing is! Check out the festival’s official website here: http://www.greatsingaporesale.com.sg

Don’t miss this great opportunity to see some of Singapore’s best sights, and to take advantage of some of the lowest prices the retail hub of Asia can offer. Browse the fantastic hotel deals below and get a comfortable pair of shoes ready for action!

Book Backpacker Hostels in London at Cheap Rates

They are cheap and also the best way to socialize with students from other nations. So you have finally decided to get admission in the top London colleges. Now you must be wondering where to look for accommodation in London. The problem grows more when you do not have any idea about London accommodation- its location, price range or anything related to your stay in the English capital. If you have friends, you may not have problem, as you all can collectively search for the best accommodation option when studying in London. But, if you do not have any friends, you may face trouble. Backpacker hostels in London offers solution to such students who have enrolled themselves for higher studies in the English capital.

Backpacker hostels in London are a lifeline for those students who do not have idea about the capital of England. Backpacker accommodation in London is available at a very reasonable price. It usually offers shared accommodation, where you have to share a room with 4 – 6 other students. The kitchen which is provided with essential cooking appliances and items is also shared by fellow students. There is a common lounge area where you can watch TV and discuss on various matters. If you think you need your own privacy, then you may find plenty of London backpacker hostels, which offer single rooms. In addition to all these features, students can enjoy free internet service.

Another advantage of the group accommodation in London is that, you have the opportunity to meet people from across the world. Many good hostels in London organize social events to break the ice and enliven the environment. BBQs, pub crawls and movie nights are a few programmes that you should make sure to participate, in case you want to make friends. Perfect for both short and long term stays, the hostels in London are also preferred by the solo travellers and working people. So, forget about the hurdles you may face when visiting London for the first as there are numerous backpacker hostels to ease you way.

Sometimes in certain hostels it can feel as though there is an already established group. Perhaps they’re long-term residents or maybe they all just met each other a few days before you arrived. Either way, this can be pretty intimidating, especially if it feels like you’re the only one who’s not part of the group. I know a lot of people who shy away from groups like this and look on from afar half jealous and maybe half disapproving. My advice would be to do everything you can to muscle in on the group! If they’re hostel long termers (especially common in cities where people stay awhile and work like London, Dublin, Edinburgh) then they’ll know all the best places to go and will show you a good time.
