Singapore (PRWEB) February 11, 2013
A leading travel website established in Singapore, GoingPlaces.sg, is now smarter and better with the inclusion of more featured articles and travel resources such as online hotel booking and travel insurance quotation. The vibrant travel portal is taking one step closer to the goal of offering a wide array of all inclusive travel services by partnering with travel operators, international online hotel reservation services and travel insurance companies in Singapore.
The recently published ITB World Travel Trends Report 2012/2013 suggests that outlook for Asian outbound tourism in 2013 to be "overwhelmingly positive." According to this report, "Asia remains the powerhouse for world tourism growth this year with strong growth of 7% in outbound travel as incomes rise and consumers are able to travel more."
Easy Access to Booking Hotel Online
"Over the last two years, we observed that readers of our website include both budget-minded travelers and small groups going on family holidays. Free independent travelers (FIT) usually book cheaper accommodation while families prefer bigger rooms and better hotels near shopping areas," said Lim Phing Phing, founder of the GoingPlaces.sg. "We want to make it easy for our readers to just click, search and book a hotel or a travel package."
Goingplaces.sg partners with leading online hotel booking services: Agoda.com, Booking.com and Hotel.com to offer a wider range of hotel deals from guesthouses that cost US$10 a night to 5-star resort hotels.
