Dear Tourist Guides,

With effect from 1 January 2019, public areas within the Orchard Road precinct will be designated as a No Smoking Zone (NSZ) where smoking will only be allowed at Designated Smoking Areas (DSAs). Visitors to Orchard Road can look forward to a healthier and more pleasant shopping environment.

Please refer to the attached advisory letter and the DSAs boundaries at Orchard Road from National Environment Agency (NEA) for more information.

It is advisable to check online for the latest Designated Smoking Area at https://www.nea.gov.sg/ORNSZ

Soft Launch of Area Tourist Guide Scheme
Dear Tourist Guides,

One of the recommendations by the Tourist Guide Taskforce set up in 2015, is the Area Tourist Guide (ATG) scheme. The ATG scheme was previously known as the Specialised Tourist Guide scheme. The scheme has been renamed after taking in feedback that 'Area' refers more accurately to a guide who possesses expertise in an area of expertise.

The ATG scheme allows domain knowledge experts to share their passion and knowledge with visitors. To ensure visitors receive good guiding services, these individuals have to complete requisite training for basic guiding skills and knowledge. The scheme also allows better segmentation of guides for visitors to identify TGs according to their special interest.

The ATG scheme will be soft-launched today. Going with a soft launch will allow for refinements to the scheme based on industry feedback (where necessary). Please see attached application form and infographics for more information.

Regards,
Tourist Guide Licensing Department
