Singaporeans have a large appetite for travelling abroad and it’s no secret.
The figures show it all: Singaporeans took an average of 5.2 trips over the course of 12 months, according to a survey by marketing technology company Criteo conducted in April this year.
Additionally, it was found that two in five Singaporeans book their trips at the last minute, usually to regional countries such as Hong Kong and Thailand.
But what if we told you that it’s possible to go further – literally – and visit other destinations while saving money at the same time?
Travel site TripAdvisor has done all the hard work for those of us who have caught the travel bug by revealing the ideal times to visit some of the most popular holiday destinations in the world.
The Luxury for Less Guide comprises eight lust-worthy destinations along with the time periods with the lowest hotel rates.
The list also suggests the “best value time period” to travel, which is defined by TripAdvisor hotel price comparison data and factors such as local weather and seasonal activities.
From the concrete jungle that is New York City to perennial-favourite Tokyo, travellers will get an idea of when to visit these spots if they wish to avoid the peak season when prices would inevitably be higher.
