Apply for the Tourist Guide Study Award by 13 October 2018
Dear Tourist Guide,

The application window for the Tourist Guide Study Award is now open.

The Tourist Guide Study Award encourages guides to attend courses to develop and deepen specialist skills that are needed by future economic growth sectors or in areas of demand. Unlike the past, visitor profiles are becoming increasingly more varied in terms of background, language types and needs. There is hence a need for tourist guides to upskill and strengthen their knowledge and capabilities. This will help strengthen their employability in getting more jobs and creating greater value for the travel industry.

Successful applicants will receive a monetary award of S$5,000 to defray out-of-pocket expenses associated with the course that the applicant would be taking. Click on the attachments to find out more about the previous study award recipients.

For more information on the study award including eligibility criteria and supported courses, go to bit.ly/touristguidestudyaward. For enquiries, please email [email protected]

Regards,

Restoration works of the Merlion Statue at the Merlion Park tentatively from 1 October to 9 December 2018.
Dear Tourist Guide,

The Merlion Statue at the Merlion Park will be undergoing restoration works tentatively from 1 October to 9 December 2018. Further updates will be given nearer to the date of commencement of works.

While the restoration works are in progress, the statue will not be available for photo-taking as scaffolding will be erected around it. The nearby Merlion cub statue, however, will be available for photo taking.

We seek the public's understanding as the works and barricades may cause some inconvenience during this period.

For any feedback or clarifications, please contact STB at 67366622 or our Tourist Information Hotline at 1800-736-2000 (Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays, from 9am to 6pm).

Best Regards,
