Over 90 exhibitors, with a vast selection of travel choices and destinations, are there to help you live the whole book.  Irresistible tour packages, customized tours, cruises, and many more possibilities await you under one roof at Singapore EXPO Halls 3 & 4 from August 17 to 19, 2018.“NATAS travel fairs continue to be the best platform for travel agents to launch fresh products and publicize existing ones, reaching out to both new and seasoned travelers,” remarked Mr Clifford Neo, Chairman-Outbound Tours of NATAS. “Thus, it is heartening to see that an increasing number of NATAS members and travel industry partners are participating in our fairs and taking up more space with each fair.”After several years with less participation NATAS is growing again with impressive booths throughout the fair. In March NATAS Holidays welcomed 83,291 visitors. This edition has over 90 exhibitors offering the most affordable and invaluable deals in 720 booths. It is not just travel agents that are participating but there are airlines, cruises, hotels, National Tourism Organisations and travel related business who will be displaying their products and services.NATAS Holidays 2018 provides fun for the whole family with a carnival-like atmosphere featuring an exciting, interesting and entertaining lineup of stage performances which includes knowledgeable destination talks about Finland and African safaris. There will be cultural song and dance presented by Taiwan Aborigines

Visitors have the chance to win attractive prizes in the NATAS Grand Draw with the top prize a pair of Premium Economy Class tickets on Singapore Airlines to Los Angeles, New York or San Francisco. There will also be more airline tickets, cruises, hotel stays and more will be up for grabs.“The significance of tourism is so much deeper than simply entertainment,” Ambassador Jip said. “Indeed, the very fact that it is an ‘ism’ is that not a reflection of depth. The expansion of people-to-people exchanges through tourism is very important as it enables people to understand the culture and history of other parts of the world. Tourism is not just fun – it brings people together. Life is short, the world is very wide. If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.”

While Asian Journeys encourages you to read about travel, we also encourage you to get out experience the world and live adventures you never thought were possible.

NATAS Holidays 2018 is open to the public from 10:00am to 9:30pm Friday August 17 to Sunday August 19, 2018 at Singapore EXPO Halls 3 & 4. Admission is free.
