The end of 2016’s first half only means one thing for the world traveler


June has come to an end and you can look at the second half of the calendar from two angles. You might think that the summery half of 2016 is coming to a close, what with the rainy season dampening your sense of adventure, or, you can choose to think that the bolder and even more adventurous, half of the year just blew its doors wide open.

Bolder and more adventurous?


The comemorative area of the Australian National War Memorial features the Pool of Reflection and the Eternal Flame in honour of those who served for Australia and New Zealand.

Think about it.

In the later part of the year, the other half of the world — far away lands less explored and visited by travelers from this side of the planet like yourself — is probably just waking up from the springtime, shaking off a snowy coat from a long winter and pretty much just getting revved up for their turn for fun.

Convinced yet?

Here’s something to give you that last nudge: the country’s biggest, grandest and most daring travel fair and raffle draw of the year, the Singapore Airlines and sister carrier SilkAir x MasterCard mid-year travel fair that’s set from July 8 to 31, 2016.

Huge promotions and travel treats will be offered, so we’ll start you off with the basics and give you a step by step guide. (We know how easy it is to palpitate at the sight of such great travel deals!)

The basics 

The travel fair is exclusive to MasterCard holders and KrisFlyer members. If you aren’t a KrisFlyer member yet, sign up before the fair on for free.

The Airline is offering all-inclusive round trip promotional fares for travel out of Manila, Cebu, Davao and Kalibo from July 8, 2016 to March 2017.

These travels rates range from USD180 up to USD950. Remember the less explored destinations mentioned earlier?

That might be good enough for most, but those are just a handful of all the holiday stops being offered to choose from.

Business Class All-In Fares

Get your in-air luxury fix beginning from USD890 or at a truly indulgent USD3,500 to promise yourself that the trip itself — and not only the destinations in Asia, Europe and the US — will be just as memorable.
