Tips and tricks to planning your next Singapore staycation – Brand Expedia’s Singapore Staycation Study

Brand Expedia recently released the findings from its 2018 Singapore Staycation Study, which surveyed over 500 Singaporeans aged 21 and above who were the decision makers for their holidays. The survey results are quite interesting, and if you have time, you should read the full results here. But more importantly, how do you benefit from all that information? Well I’ve sieved through all that information and here’s my tips on how to maximise your next staycation as well as advice to hotels on what they need to do to entice more Singaporeans to go for staycations.

If you’ve never been on a staycation, try it!

First of all, if you’ve one of the 36% of the population who have never gone on a staycation,  know that you are in the minority! You may feel uncomfortable about going on a staycation, or wonder what’s the big deal about it, but give it a chance because you just might love it so much you might become one of those frequent staycationers who average 4 staycations a year!

Expedia – Essential Food Guide to Asia

[Sponsored Post]

Want to go on a quick foodie getaway but no time to do any research on where to eat? Does the thought of having to sieve through and compile information from numerous websites put you off your holiday before you’ve even started? Don’t you wish for a trusted expert to tell you all the answers?

Your prayers have been answered because Expedia has come up with the Essential Food Guide to Asia. Basically, it’s a website showcasing the best food that Asia has to offer, from street food all the way to Michelin-starred restaurants. Currently cities such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai and Taipei are featured. Simply choose the city, type of cuisine and type of eatery and a list of recommended eateries will pop out. If you click into each of the eateries, you will be able to see a brief description of the eatery, the average price, address, contact information, as well as its location via Google maps, all within the same page.

I like that the whole interface is very simple and clean. Expedia’s guide would be useful for time-strapped travellers, as you can basically obtain recommendations on where to eat with just a few simple clicks. Also, if you’re travelling to a few Asian destinations, you’ll find the standardised information format very convenient to navigate.

There currently aren’t that many eateries featured on the site, presumably to ensure that only deserving eateries get listed. With so many food guides out there, we don’t want yet another food directory. What we want is for someone to actually sieve through all the noise. Going down the path of “expert guide” is probably a smart move, if Expedia is able to deliver on its intentions.
