Ease tour guide rules for seniors


THE process to become qualified tourist guides should be made easier for senior citizens ("STB reviewing tourist guide rules" by the Singapore Tourism Board; last Monday).

The current accreditation rules are too lengthy and complex.

Why not introduce a streamlined course that seniors can complete? I am sure many of them would be delighted to market Singapore to tourists and, at the same time, spend their time gainfully.
