It's not just about shopping discounts. Staycations, city tours and even brewery visits will be on offer at this year's Great Singapore Sale (GSS), which kicks off today promising something for everyone.

Now in its 21st year, the event is pushing "lifestyle" activities more than ever.

Miss Lau Chuen Wei, executive director of event organiser Singapore Retailers Association (SRA), said: "This year, a person can get to have a variety of experiences. It's not just about sales and offers, although those are great to have.

"The GSS is a great opportunity to introduce these experiences to people - not just tourists but locals."
