Fare of the Month: Singapore Airlines Gives a ‘High Five!’

Singapore Airlines is the world’s most awarded carrier. Why? It is recognized for its 1) top-notch service 2) onboard experience 3) food quality and selection 4) seamless and frequent connections (especially via the world’s most awarded airport, Singapore’s Changi Airport) and 5) widespread destinations.

Those are five great reasons to fly Singapore Airlines, and we’re featuring five cities onboard the airline with our Fare of the Month. Offering the best value of any airfare out there, this one takes you to five amazing destinations: Paris, Denpasar, Bali; Singapore, Hong Kong and San Francisco.

This August, experience and explore three continents when you book this incredible Airfare of the Month, departing from Canada-wide gateways, and booking now.

Paris

Set your sights on the City of Light, the first stop on this dazzling route. Speaking of sights, there is no shortage of things to do and see in Paris. This August, may we suggest you:

See

We’ll let you in on a little secret. Les Grands Voisins is arguably the coolest spot in Paris, especially during the hot summer. Housed in a former 16th-century hospital, the compound is described as a “utopian village”, packed with markets, restaurants, cafes, and locals in-the-know.

Taste

A trendy treat in Canadian cities, why not taste mouth-melting macarons in their country of origin? Invented in Bordeaux, these pretty, pastel confections adorn Paris bakery windows, giving the couture windows on the Champs Elysées a run for their money.

Tour

For a hip Parisian summer experience, tour the lively, open-air bars (guingettes) along the Seine River, housed on barges, ferries and dotted with twinkling lights, perfect for a sultry August night in Paris.

Denpasar 

The second stop is Denpasar, bucket-list Bali’s biggest city and busiest hub.

See 

See beautiful Bali from a bird’s eye view on a breathtaking Balinese swing, towering metres high over lush landscapes. 

Taste

As the saying goes, gado-gado is a dish best served cold. Maybe that’s not the exact quote, but on those hot steamy Balinese days, gado-gado (translated to mix-mix) is a hearty, chilled vegetable salad, with a potato, green bean and tempeh base, drenched in a lip-smacking peanut sauce.

Tour

Get up close and personal (so to speak!) with famous Komodo dragons on a 3-day tour from Denpasar to Komodo Island. Indonesia is the only place in the world where these prehistoric giants reside, making this fascinating tour truly unique.

Singapore

Singapore’s award-winning airport is a destination in itself! Check it out and then explore its modern, polished urban surroundings.

See 

The Fountain of Wealth at Suntec City is something different to add to your Instagram feed. With a mammoth circumference of 6 metres and height of almost 14 metres, it was the Guinness record holder for world’s largest fountain until 2010. To us, the sheer size of this fountain blows all others out of the water (groan.)

Taste 

No trip to this foodie destination is complete without eating at a hawker centre. These bustling food buildings are a cornerstone of community and culture in Singapore. A cacophony of bubbling pots and sizzling pans meets a concoction of mouthwatering fragrances. Nosh on noodle dishes, dumplings, satay and other renowned Singapore street foods.

Tour

Sprawling and efficient, Singapore has an excellent transit system, but we suggest taking a day to bike the city. Bikes are cheap and easy to rent, and Singapore’s park and bike trails are a wonderful way to explore its many outdoor attractions.

Hong Kong

multi-city flight to Hong Kong dim sum

A gastronome’s paradise, a shopping haven, with opportunities for fresh air and serenity, a layover in Hong Kong should be extended for a few days — at least.

See 

No trip to Hong Kong is complete without seeing Victoria Harbour. Capture photos of timeless Chinese junks and modern vessels that decorate and frequent this picturesque and familiar bay.

Taste 

Hong Kong is a foodie’s fantasy, but probably the most famous Cantonese dish is dim sum, which is actually an assortment of many mouthwatering small plates. In Hong Kong, with so many dim sum restaurants at your disposal, narrow down the broad selection by choosing the specialty staple of the house –pork, seafood or vegetables.

Tour

A lovely day trip from Hong Kong is Lantau Island, a perfect sojourn from HK’s hustle and bustle. Most tours include a visit to the Big Buddha statue, one of the island’s most recognized attractions.

San Francisco

The final stop on this fabulous five-city airfare, San Francisco always leaves a lasting impression.

See 

Photogenic San Fran is home to some of America’s most famous sights, from the Golden Gate Bridge to ‘Painted Lady’ houses. Since this airfare takes you there in August, you’ll be able to check out the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival, which is a great day out for the whole family.

Taste

August is the ideal time to check out the city’s food and wine festivals. Eat Drink SF is one of the largest, featuring delectable food, unlimited wine and spirit tastings, and cheesemonger cave (helloooo!) There’s also the SF Street Food Festival, where some of San Francisco’s best chefs and food trucks converge.

Tour

Touring the city by its iconic cable cars is a must. Hop on and explore on your own, or ask a Flight Centre Expert Traveller to book a guided trolley tour.

This fantastic, five-city airfare can’t be booked online– contact a Flight Centre travel consultant today to book — offer ends soon!
