We may still be in the first few days of 2020, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start dreaming up our year’s travel adventures. With renewed days of annual leave and 9 long weekends at our disposal, early planning is essential if we’re aiming to snap up the best deals possible.

Between 17th and 19th January 2020, these travel deals will be made available to you at the Changi Recommends “Around The World” Travel Fair. Everything from hotels to unlimited data SIM cards will be going for up to 69% off, and you can also expect free goodie bags and a lucky draw chance to win a 2D1N stay at Bintan Lagoon Resort.

Here’s what you can expect:


Up to 69% off attraction tickets, passes and unlimited data SIM cards


We’re always on the prowl for a good travel deal or two – and here, you can snag everything from unlimited data WIFI rentals to overseas transports for a fraction of the price.

A thing to remember is that these deals operate on a first-come-first-serve basis. They also change every three hours at 12PM, 3PM and 6PM during the 3-day event, so keep your eyes peeled and get ready to chiong once the new deals are broadcasted.

Test your luck and reflexes at claw machines and speed challenges

Scouring the fair for travel promos isn’t the only thing you can do there. To liven up your bargain-hunting experience, there’ll be a bunch of interactive activities that you can do together with your friends and family.

Completing each activity will net you a stamp on your “Around The World” Passport, which you’ll receive upon registration. And you’ll want to finish it up, as a fully-filled passport will grant you one entry in the Grand Lucky Draw.

If you find yourself at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the day, you’ll stand to score a Changi Recommends deal for yourself.

You can also look forward to neon claw machines and cash grab machines to try your hand at. All you need to do here is to show them your “Around The World” passport to redeem one chance, which you will spend either trying to kiap a capsule of travel deals or catching a lucky coupon in a very windy booth.
