A few news nuggets for those domiciled in Singapore:
- SQ is launching a capital express linking Singapore to Canberra (Aus) and Wellington (NZ). This is a through flight with the stopover in Canberra.
- Those born in the year of the monkey (click here to view which one you are) may win a 7D cruise to Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon) on Royal Caribbean. Sign up at their facebook page (you need to like it…and comment). Pity that you need to travel on 29-Jan if you win!
- Airbnb seems to be upping the ante with offers to stay in the former homes of celebrities. I wonder if Emily Blunt has a “ex-home” in London to bnb…
Suan told me that there is an equivalent to Airbnb in South Korea. Apparently only in Korean, the site also fixes you in accommodations in private homes.
Product innovation is indeed critical, especially in the tourism industry.
