Break up a holiday with a stopover in Dubai or Singapore

November 29, 2013 Wholesaler No Comments Email Email

Many Australian travellers are breaking up their holiday by stopping over for a few days in Dubai or Singapore before continuing on their way to their primary destination or heading back home.

According to Excite Holidays, since the Qantas and Emirates tie up, the company has seen a dramatic increase of about 71% in hotel bookings to Dubai. However, Singapore still remains popular and is no longer seen as a mere stopover hub en route to Europe or Asia.

Recent and dramatic tourism developments in Singapore have made it an even more vibrant and exciting destination for travellers. New developments like the 57th floor Sky Park, the 150m long infinity pool and observation deck at Marina Bay Sands, Sentosa Cove, Universal Studios, the Gardens by the Bay, the world’s largest indoor skydiving simulator and the F1 are some of the major draw cards that attract Australian visitors to the island.

In addition to world-class shopping and delicious cuisine, travellers can book an activity during their stopover in Dubai or Singapore. The 4×4 Dubai Desert Safari and the Singapore Zoo Night Safari are the two most requested activities booked through Excite Holidays.

Other popular activities and sightseeing tours booked in Singapore include skip the line tickets to Universal Studios, Sentosa Island day trip, Singapore city tour, Chinatown trishaw night tour, Jurong Bird Park Tour and tickets to the Gardens by the Bay.
