STB unveils a series of activities to mark its 50 years

The Singapore Tourism Board, STB has unveiled a series of activities to mark 50 years of tourism promotion and development. 

They'll run in three-phases - Reminisce, Rediscover and Celebrate. 

Among the highlights in the Reminisce phase is a free guided tour and talk at Haw Par Villa which will take place over two weekends in March. 

Visitors can also look forward to cultural performances, a nostalgic themed food bazaar and a vintage flea market. 

STB's Chief Executive, Lionel Yeo says these activities will connect with the young and the old emotionally. 

"For the young, there are many opportunities for them to reminisce the attractions that they enjoy as they were growing up. While for the older residents, they will have a much bigger memory bank of nostalgic stories that they can draw on and we are providing this platform for them to reminisce."

Other activities include collecting postcards featuring iconic attractions and free guided tours to places of heritage such as the Gan Heritage Centre at Bukit Pasoh and Hindu Temple at Tank Road. 

The Rediscover phase will feature unique experiences designed by local tourism enterprises from various sectors, and will run from next month to October. 

The Celebrate phase will showcase festive light-ups and various events, and set the mood for Singapore's 50th birthday celebrations next year. 

Details will be made known at a later date.
