Singapore’s Overall International Visitor Arrivals (IVA) reached 15.6 million, representing a strong seven per cent year on year growth, confirming the city continues to be an attractive travel destination. “We’re thrilled that increasingly more Australians are visiting our city and we’re excited to present the diverse range of experiences that Singapore offers all year round and this year we want to continue telling more Aussies why Singapore should be featured in their holiday plans,” Singapore Tourism area director Oceania Sharon Lam said. Singapore’s year round calendar of events will soon look to attract more Aussies than ever before, with both the popular Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix and inaugural Women’s Tennis Association Championship happening this year.
