Singapore bags Asia's top city attraction award
Singapore on Thursday won awards for being Asia's top city attraction and the best meetings and conference destination at what is touted as the tourism industry's Oscars.
The Republic lost out in both these categories last year to Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok respectively at the World Travel Awards.
"Winning awards is always a nice icing on the cake but at the end of the day, sometimes we win some, sometimes we don't," said Ms Jeannie Lim, executive director of conventions, meetings, exhibitions and conferences at the Singapore Tourism Board.
"More important to us are the pillars we are building to sustain ourselves as a vibrant destination for the future."
