Changi Airport has developed a new "Weekend Escapades" mobile application, that provides users with destination-based content and maps, flight searches and the latest airline promotions.

The application contains information on 30 cities across 11 countries located within a five-hour flight radius of Singapore. It not only covers the usual weekend dining and shopping hotspots in popular destinations such as Bangkok and Hong Kong, but also the less-trodden cities of Asia.

Users can search for ideas on where to eat, shop and stay for different price ranges. A short itinerary is also offered for each city with accompanying maps and an events option lists the festivals taking place in these countries.

The application's content was prepared by the team behind the Lonely Planet Asia and Escape! magazines.
